Share post:

NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is going to procure 24 special coaches that will run as four-six- coach trains on Airport Express Line. The extra trains will help DMRC maintain adequate frequency on the highspeed corridor when it is extended to Dwarka Sector 25.

The extension work on the corridor is in full swing and 40% of the civil work has been completed. It is expected to get fully completed by 2021 and operationalized by March 2022, a DMRC source said. The total cost will be around Rs 310 crore, the source added.

The new coaches will be different from the usual ones as the existing ones on the DMRC network cannot be used on the Airport line.

The trains will be standard gauge with a top speed of 132 kmph, the source said, adding that once the extension work is completed, DMRC will construct three additional stabling lines at the Dwarka depot.

Last year, Delhi Metro had started the construction of the underground stretch, which will extend the corridor from New Delhi Metro Station-Dwarka Sector 21 to Dwarka Sector 25 and connect it to the upcoming exhibition- cumconvention center (ECC).

DMRC has also engaged a firm to provide train control and signaling system for the stretch.

An underground station will also come up inside the ECC complex through subways, which will be constructed using the “cut and cover” method.
