New Delhi: The 3.2-km-long Escorts Mujesar-Ballabgarh section of Delhi Metro’s Violet Line is now ready for passenger operations, the DMRC said on Sunday. The section will be flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday through remote control.

Ballabgarh will become the fourth city in Haryana to get Metro connectivity after Gurgaon, Faridabad, and Bahadurgarh. After the opening of this extension, the entire Kashmere Gate-Raja Nahar Singh Metro corridor will become 46.6 km-long.

 

“Currently, 25.8 km of Metro lines are operational across Haryana. After the opening of this section, the total length of Metro in Haryana will become 29 km. All trains running on this section are manufactured in India,” the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said in a statement.

“The Escorts Mujesar-Raja Nahar Sigh (Ballabgarh) section will be extremely crucial from the point of view of connectivity for the city of Ballabgarh, Faridabad, Southeast Delhi, and Central Delhi areas.

“Ballabgarh is an upcoming urban settlement and an industrial city. A large number of people travel everyday for their professional requirements from Ballabgarh to Delhi and vice-versa,” the DMRC added.

 

The Raja Nahar Singh Metro station of this section will be integrated with the Ballabgarh railway station while the Ballabgarh interstate bus terminal will be directly connected with a foot over-bridge, which is currently under construction.

“A peak hour frequency of six minutes and 48 seconds will be maintained on this section between Badarpur and Raja Nahar Singh on weekdays,” the DMRC said.

All trains, which till now were operating till Escorts Mujesar, will go up to Raja Nahar Singh.
