Metro IGI line may open on Wednesday

Posted by admin On February - 21 - 2011

Delhi will join a select few cities in the world to have a high-speed corridor to the airport with Delhi Metro‘s most sensitive line likely to start operations from Wednesday, finally bringing the Indira Gandhi International airport closer to the heart of the capital.

If everything goes according to the plan and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) completes its deployment process by Monday, the 23-km Airport Metro Express, which connects Connaught Place with the swanky Terminal-3 of the IGI, will be opened to the public on Wednesday.

However, a formal inauguration of the high-speed link, the first Metro corridor in the country to come up on a public-private-partnership mode, is likely to take place later with sources indicating that several dignitaries will be invited for the function.
