Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: In view of heavy passenger rush on Lines 3 and 4 of the Delhi Metro railway, an additional train has been introduced from Dwarka Sector-9 to Noida City Centre and Anand Vihar. With this, the number of trains on these sections has gone up to 43.

According to a Delhi Metro spokesperson, Line 4 is the most crowded line on the network and also the longest in operation at present, carrying 48 per cent of the metro’s total ridership.

“The Delhi Metro network had 41 trains at the time of inauguration of the Anand Vihar extension on January 7. One train was added on January 18, and with the introduction of an additional train on Monday the system will be able to run 78 additional train trips between Yamuna Bank and Dwarka everyday with 39 of these trips running further up to Noida City Centre and the remaining 39 trips going up to Anand Vihar as only alternate trains go towards these two destinations after Yamuna Bank,” said the spokesperson. The introduction of this additional train will enable Delhi Metro to reduce congestion on Lines 3 and 4 as over 90,000 people are likely to be accommodated everyday on these 78 trips. One more train would be added in another ten days.
