Testing begins on Delhi metro Line 8
Wednesday, June 08, 2016



TESTING began on the first completed section of Delhi metro Line 8 (Magenta Line) Delhi metro network on June 8, when the first low-speed test runs took place on a 3.5km section between Kalindi Kunj depot and Okhla Vihar station

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) says the initial stages of testing are focusing on gauging and the performance of rolling stock subsystems. Over the next few months the test programme will validate the operation of CBTC, train braking, interaction between the trains and the operational control centre, and overhead electrification

Delhi has the best metro network in India, my native country. Starting in just 2002, it is constantly growing with some interesting facts like both BG & SG, both overhead wire and overhead rail, and uses all types of alighment – underground, overground and elevated.

Some new lines and extensions are already under construction–

1) A western branch of blue line will reach at Najafgarh, and an eastern extension to NOIDA Electronic City.
2) A western extension of green line will reach at Bahadurgarh City Park.
3) A north-central branch of violet line will reach at Kashmir Gate. It will make that station a first metro station of India which will ber served by three lines, one SG and two BG. Also there will be a southern extension towards Ballabhgarh will be made.
4) An eastern extension of red line will reach at Ghaziabad New Bus Stand.
5) Two new U shaped lines will be constructed, namely brown line and silver line, or pink line and magenta line, which will almost encircle the Delhi city area as a garland, and from east to west. I heard these two lines will use driverless metros.

It is now more than 200 Km, I think all these extension will make it more than 300 Km.

Is this means that this new rapid transit will run parallel with existing suburban rail network? Or use the existing existing suburban rail network?

Will it be completely elevated like metro? on an upgraded version of local train?
