New Delhi: The Delhi Metro at peak times on the route he is most people’s movement, the root is the root of DMRC most unsafe dirty and battered. We deal Dwarka and Noida-Vaishali Metro Blue Line between coloring speed. According to English newspaper Hindustan Times reported Blue Line passengers face the most difficulties.
On Monday morning, passengers at the Vaishali Metro station had to wait for an hour to get into the station because of a snag in the AFC gates. Last Friday, trains ran slow throughout the day due to a technical snag.
“It is the longest route and most of it is exposed to nature. The problem in overhead wires happens because of change in season. Because of heat and frequent thunderstorms, this line is the most vulnerable. The track circuit problem occurs because of variation in temperature,” said a DMRC official, requesting anonymity.
Technical snags are not the only problems ailing the line. With over 50 km of network, five interchange stations and 30% increase in the expected ridership, the longest and busiest line of Delhi Metro is unable to take the load.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) estimated that ridership in this line would be 9.18 lakh per day but in August 2015, it had reached 11.94 lakh per day. This line carries over 30% of the Metro’s passengers and since most of it is elevated and open, the vulnerability to snags is higher.
