The 6.6-km Noida City Centre-Noida Electronic City section of Delhi Metro, an extension of the Blue Line, will be inspected for safety on March 4, paving way for its opening, officials said Thursday.
This fully-elevated section consists of six stations -- Sector 34, Sector 52, Sector 61, Sector 59, Sector 62 and Noida Electronic City.
"The civil work on the section is over and trials are currently underway. Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) S K Pathak will inspect the 6.675-km long Noida City Centre-Noida Electronic City section of Delhi Metro's Blue Line on Monday," a senior DMRC official said.
The extension will immensely help residents of Noida.
Once operational, the extended corridor will bring the Blue Line close to the recently-opened Aqua Line, which connects Noida and Greater Noida.
Sector 52 station is very close to one of the stations on the Aqua Line, and its commuters are awaiting last-mile connectivity between the two lines.
The Delhi Metro's current operational span is 327 km with 236 stations in Delhi and neighbouring cities.
