journey of Metrorail
Metrorail train movement has been inaugurated experimentally. Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader inaugurated the train service at the depot built for Metrorail in Uttara at 11.50 am today. The passengerless train will run experimentally between four stations from Uttara to Pallabi.

Dhaka Mass Transit Company Limited (DMTCL) sources said that the test run on the viaduct has started today.

Earlier on Friday, the Dream Metrorail operated for the first time from Diabari in Uttara to Mirpur.

Metrorail operated six bogies on a trial basis at four stations up to Mirpur last Friday. Today, the first metrorail viaduct of the country has started experimental operation. As part of the preparations, the DMTCL authorities said that the Metrorail route was launched for the first time last Friday.

According to DMTCL sources, the test run on Viaduct is starting this morning. Work on this has been going on for a long time. To see if there is any problem somewhere, whether there is any obstacle — last Friday they went on the viaduct little by little.
