Opening of the 4.49-km extension of Delhi Metro’s yellow line from Jahangirpuri to Samaypur Badli may be delayed.

Inspection cancelled

The two-day safety inspection of the line to be conducted by the Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) has been cancelled.

According to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) officials, fresh schedule for the mandatory audit is yet to be finalised.

“Unavoidable work”

When asked about the cancellation, the Delhi Metro officials added: “We are not aware of the reason. We just got the information from the CMRS’s Office that the inspection has been cancelled. The Commissioner had some unavoidable work.”

Once the DMRC receives green signal from the Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety, it is expected to open by October-end or early November.

The 4.49-km extension includes three new stations, namely Haiderpur, Rohini Sector 18 and Samaypur Badli.
