CMRS and his team along with others senior LMRC officials tested the speed efficiency on Friday by running the train to and fro from CCS Airport and Munshipulia multiple times. After testing the systems at the maximum operating speed of 87 km/h and conducting several braking tests, the migration testing was completed successfully in the presence of the CMRS and his team.
