Botan­i­cal Gar­den to Kalkaji Mandir sec­tion of the Botan­i­cal Gar­den-Janakpuri west line is all set to open by Novem­ber-end.

Ac­cord­ing to the Delhi Metro Rail Cor­po­ra­tion (DMRC), tri­als and test­ing on the 12.64km sec­tion has been com­pleted and most of the manda­tory clear­ances, re­quired for invit­ing the com­mis­sioner of Metro rail safety (CMRS) to in­spect, have been re­ceived.

“The papers for scru­tiny and a de­tailed ex­am­i­na­tion by CMRS are un­der sub­mis­sion to his of­fice and af­ter these are ver­i­fied, ex­am­ined and scru­ti­nised in depth, fur­ther ac­tion is ex­pected. In ad­di­tion, since the ap­pli­ca­tion in­volves vo­lu­mi­nous data of civil, elec­tri­cal, sig­nalling and track, the DMRC may also have to sup­ply any ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion sought by the of­fice of CMRS. Af­ter the en­tire process, it is ex­pected that a suit­able date for in­spec­tion will be in­di­cated,” said a DMRC spokesper­son.

With the open­ing of this sec­tion, res­i­dents of Noida will save at least 45 min­utes of trav­el­ling time while go­ing to south Delhi.
