The Delhi Metro has extended the Violet Line route, constructing the new Badarpur-Faridabad Metro route. This new line is going to be 13.875 km long and will comprise nine metro stations that are as follows:
Sarai - NHPC Chowk - Mewala Maharajpur - Sector 27-A - Badkal Mor - Old Faridabad -Ajronda - New Faridabad - YMCA Chowk
The construction work for the line has been completed. The trial runs for the route began on 12 April 2015. The trial runs will continue for a couple of months or more before the metro route will be opened for the commuters. After the extensive trials, DMRC will require an approval from the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety to open the line for public. The metro corridor is expected to open in June 2015.
According to metro officials, about 1.92 lakh passengers travel every day on the Mandi House-Badarpur route and the ridership is likely to increase once it will be extended till Faridabad.
Five years ago, the Delhi Metro entered Gurgaon connecting Haryana and Delhi and now, the Faridabad-Badarpur line will open a new route between the cities. Faridabad will be the fourth NCR city to get linked via metro after Noida, Ghaziabad and Gurgaon.
