In the Delhi Disaster Management meeting held in Delhi on Wednesday, Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has given permission to run the metro in the capital. With this, the Delhi Metro will start running again from September 7. However, detailed information about this is yet to come.
Metro services likely to start in phases
Metro services are likely to start in phases from September 7. In view of the increase in Corona infection cases once again, it may be that Metro services are started on separate lines in phases. All the precautionary measures will be taken for the safety of passengers when the Metro services start. Despite this, if the metro runs on all the lines simultaneously, then there may be difficulties in controlling the crowd of passengers. Sources say that metro services will be started in a phased manner keeping in view the number of passengers on different lines, including the container zone.
There are a total of 10 lines of the Delhi Metro including the airport express line. The number of passengers on all routes, the status of infection, and other aspects are being churned. Recently, the Transport Minister of Delhi also talked about preparing a list of metro stations, where passenger services will be provided. Currently, frequency changes can also be made, given the low number of passengers on the airport line.
Preparations for the
the metro area being made around the station. Before the start of the metro services, repair and cleaning work is being done around the stations. Passenger facilities are being repaired to ensure that passengers do not face problems when services are started. Tiles are being laid on the pavement outside the Sector-10 metro station, while e-rickshaws, auto, and taxi drivers are also eagerly waiting.
