CM Kejriwal flags off Delhi Metro's Pink Line

Unbelievable but true Delhi Metro to break through into this global list in 2018

With the inauguration of 21.56 km-long Majlis Park-Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus section, the Delhi Metro's operational network expanded to 252 km.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said his government would soon clear the Delhi Metro's long-pending Phase-IV project, while indicating that there were "issues of financial viability" on some of its routes.

"The ticket from Vishwavidyalaya station to Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus station will cost Rs 50".

Kolkata, Mar 13 Delhi Metro will have a 250-km long network from tomorrow and by the year-end, it is scheduled to have a 350-km operational length, positioning it among the top five Metro networks in the world, its Managing Director Mangu Singh said here today. It is going to largely help the students who travel by road from North campus. "On Sundays and national holidays anyway, the fare is less than the regular cost", the senior official said.

The Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS), which inspected the stretch from February 26 to 28, has given the clearance for launching operations on the new line. The line runs from Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar corridor.

All the stations have platform-screen doors. Passenger services on the stretch will begin from 6 pm.

Cousins to visit Vikings first and deal is expected
Last season Detroit's Matt Stafford became the highest paid signal-caller in the league when he signed a $135 million deal. But his production declined last season with Rodgers sidelined much of the year by a collarbone injury.

Eight of these stations are elevated and rest underground. Like the Magenta Line, broad-sized coaches from the new rolling stock, will ply on the standard gauge Pink line.

A total of 19 trains will be pressed into service for the entire section, it said.

However, for an initial period of two-three years the trains will have drivers.

A new 21.5-km circular metro corridor, which will connect South and North West Delhi along the ring road, will be opened to the public on Wednesday evening.

For the first time, travelators are being installed on foot over bridges in the vicinity of interchange hubs, with the travelator at Durgabai Deshmukh metro station stretching over almost a kilometre to connect it with Dhaula Kuan station on the Airport Express line.
