Trains Between Samaypur Badli And Jahangir Puri To Run Via Single Line For Four Months

Delhi Metro: The train services between Delhi Metro’s Samaypur Badli and Jahangir Puri stations on the Yellow Line will be temporarily conducted on a single line for a period of four months. These changes are necessary to facilitate the execution of Phase-IV work for the Magenta Line extension, according to officials on Thursday.

During the affected period from 10 pm to 7 am, commuters can expect some disruptions in service. The Yellow Line connects Samaypur Badli in Delhi to Millennium City Centre Gurugram in Haryana.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) stated, “Train movement between Samaypur Badli and Jahangir Puri on the Yellow Line shall be done via a single line from 10 pm until the end of revenue services, and from the start of revenue services until 7 am. This arrangement will be in effect from Thursday (18.4.2024) for a duration of four months to facilitate the execution of Phase-IV work for the Magenta Line extension.”

In other news, the Red line (Rithala-New Bus Adda Ghaziabad), the oldest corridor is now operating with eight coaches. Previously, trains on this route ran with six coaches, which was insufficient to accommodate the increasing number of passengers. The addition of two more coaches in each train effectively resolved the problem. However, the frequency of trains remains a concern on this route. The Red Line corridor, known for its heavy footfall, is grappling with low train frequency.

In November 2022, the process of converting the 34.55-kilometer-long Red Line metro into eight-coach trains commenced.
