Notably, the Magenta line from West Janakpuri to Botanical Garden will be the first driverless metro which will roll out in October. The line will be thrown partially open to the public in October this year, as per a report in a leading daily.
According to a spokesperson of DMRC trial runs on two sections of corridor of phase 3, between Kalkaji and Janakpuri West to Terminal 1 – IGI Airport Metro station are in progress. The line is expected to get open in stages between October (2017) to March (2018).
Notably, the trial run for Pink line was done last week between the Shakupur and Mayapuri metro station. Driverless trains will be initially operated on Magenta and Pink Lines.
As per reports, the highly automated driverless trains will run on the unattended train operation mode. The Magenta line is also expected to connect West Delhi to Noida in under an hour through a direct corridor.
It will also bring many South Delhi areas on the map, making the travel easy for so many people in West and South Delhi.
