Trial runs being on Delhi metro’s grey line
The over 4-km-long stretch is part of the 5-km Grey Line, which will go up to Dhansa Stand. The corridor is likely to begin operations by September, said officials of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. Commuters travelling on the Grey Line will be able to get on the Blue Lint at the Dwarka station interchange.
The Grey Line is part of the Delhi Metro’s Phase-III network. Following the opening of this corridor, a 1.4-km-stretch stretch between Trilokpuri and Mayur Vihar Pocket 1 will still be left as it is stuck in an ongoing land dispute.
DMRC officials said that trial runs have started on the 4.29-km-long corridor. This section comprises three stations: Dwarka, Nangli and Najafgarh. The line is targeted for completion by September 2019. A 1.18-km section, which will extend the line to Dhansa Stand, is slated for completion by December 2020.
Of the three stations, two are elevated and only the Najafgarh station is underground.
