Trial runs on Fbd Metro corridor from Sunday

Trial runs on the fully elevated 14 km-long Badarpur-Faridabad corridor will begin on Sunday before the Delhi Metro formally opens the extended Violet Line to public by June.

A metro spokesman said that during trial runs, the interactions of the trains with civil structure are checked to ensure that there is no physical blockage during its movement on the tracks.

“The entire signalling system also undergoes rigorous testing. In addition, train response at different speeds; applying brakes and inter-connection with the Operations Control Centre (OCC) are monitored during the trials,” the spokesman said.

Delhi Metro Railway Corporation (DMRC) had made its foray into Haryana five years ago and with this project the DMRC will further spread its operations in the neighbouring state.

The corridor is an extension of the existing Mandi House -Badarpur line (Line 6) of the network and according to official estimates, presently the average ridership on it (Line 6) stands at around 1.92 lakh per day.

After trial runs, DMRC will have to get the mandatory Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) clearance, after inspecting the line for all safety parameters for passengers.
