Delhi Metro: CMRS to inspect Vaishali Line tomorrow
New Delhi: The Anand Vihar-Vaishali corridor will undergo mandatory safety inspection tomorrow, setting the stage for the inauguration of the small stretch that would bring Metro to Ghaziabad.
Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety R K Kardam has agreed to inspect the line tomorrow. He is expected to complete his inspection the same day.
After his approval, the line can be opened any time. Trial runs on the three-km corridor have been successful so far and the DMRC had recently invited the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) to inspect the corridor for a safety certificate.
Stations on the Line will have a completely different look and art works will adorn walls of the two stations — Kaushambi and Vaishali.
With this, Ghaziabad will be the third satellite city in the National Capital Region to get Metro connectivity after Noida and Gurgaon. Currently, residents of Ghaziabad have to come to Anand Vihar ISBT to board a Metro train.
There are two stations on this elevated corridor and the line is expected to bring thousands of new commuters into the ever-increasing ridership of the Delhi Metro. Both Vaishali and Kaushambi Metro stations will have parking facilities for commuters.
