The Hindu : Cities / Delhi : Trial runs start on Sarita Vihar- Badarpur Metro section

The Hindu : Cities / Delhi : Trial runs start on Sarita Vihar- Badarpur Metro section


DMRC has started the trial of metro train from Sarita Vihar to Badarpur on Monday night and hopefully it will be open to public before Diwali. Really DMRC has worked fast to develop the central secretariat - badarpur stretch of metro because they have completed in a very short period. Sarita Vihar to Central Secretariat line has been started before commonwealth games but the remaining stretch of Sarita Vihar to Badarpur via Mohan Estate, Tuglakabad is under trials and will start its operation for public hopefully before Diwali. It is a Diwali gift given to for the people of Delhi and NCR by DMRC.

I hope that no compromise on quality has been done to meet the deadlines.

Badarpur line ready, DMRC awaits safety inspection - The Times of India

On Times of India website i read that DMRC has completed the Badarpur to Central Secretariat Metro Line and DMRC is awaiting safety inspection and will start before commonwealth games. It is expected that all the work will be completed in next 2-3 days. It will definately reduce congestion on National Highway - 2 i.e. Mathura road as roads attached to KaranSingh Shooting Range has been closed in view of commonwealth games. Some of the officials of Commonwealth games are staying at various hotels in and around Surajkund to the Badkhaj Surajkund road has been closed by the authorities from Oct.3 to Oct. 14 and the traffic has been diverted to National Highway-2 Mathura Road. The Metro will definitely help the commuters and ease the road congestion at Badarpur, Aali Ghav etc.

If the Badarpur Flyover can also be started before games it will be a wonder and their will be no traffic chaos at Badarpur Border. Even if it is not possible to completely operationalise the flyover then One side of the flyover must be completed and opened for the traffic.
