The first trial run on the Magenta line of the Delhi Metro was conducted Wednesday between Kalindi Kunj depot station and Okhla Vihar Metro station.

The 38-km-long Magenta line stretches from Janakpuri West station to Botanical Garden station and is expected to cater to 4 lakh passengers.

In a statement, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said three sets of trains were tested successfully. “During these trials, the interface of the Metro train will be checked to ensure that there is no physical infringement with civil infrastructure during the movement of the train on the track and also testing of various subsystems of coaches shall be done,” said a spokesperson.

The DMRC Wednesday also made a presentation on the proposed fourth phase of the Metro before Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who had earlier given in-principle approval for the project. “Some changes on the routes of the Metro line, with a deadline of 2021, have been proposed by the government… The CM will soon take a decision in this regard,” said an official.
