Delhi Metro Heritage line set to run from Sunday
Delhi Metro Heritage is set to run from Sunday. Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Union urban development minister M Venkaiah Naidu will flag off the much awaited Heritage Line of Delhi metro on Sunday 10am. ITO- Kashmere Gate section of the Delhi Metro will be opened to public from 12 noon on Sunday. With this, the Delhi metro will surpass the mass-transits in Moscow, Seoul and Tokyo metro network. Janpath, Mandi House and ITO stations on this line have already been opened for the public (4.2km section of the 9.37km-long-corridor is operational). This corridor will connect the Old Delhi areas like Daryaganj, Delhi Gate and Red Fort with the business hub of Delhi at Janpath. With the opening of this section, Kashmere Gate has become the biggest interchange station, as passengers travelling on Rithala-Dilshad Garden, Samaipur Badli-HUDA City Center and Faridabad line can change from here and Rajeev Chowk, which caters to over 5 lakh commuters every day, will also be decongested.
