NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): The Delhi Metro services will be resumed in a graded manner in three stages from 7th to 12th September 2020 according to a statement issued by the DMRC Today. The DMRC said that the general public may avail services from September 7 onwards.
The metro services will resume in a phase-wise manner with the opening of Line-2 (Yellow Line) from Samaypur Badli to HUDA City Centre including Rapid Metro, Gurugram on 7th of September. The Corporation will further commence services on other routes in three stages with all being operational by 12th September.
“Train services will commence with adequate frequency as they were before 22nd March 2020 which may be increased or decreased as per requirement. However, due to an increase in dwell time of trains at stations, there will be a minor increase in time required for performing a trip”, the DMRC said.
“Trains will not stop at stations falling in containment zone and such stations will remain closed for public. Similarly, some of the stations may be skipped if social distancing is not adhered by the passengers”, said Mr. Anuj Dayal, Executive Director of Corporate Communications at DMRC.
