With the India International Trade Fair being thrown open to the public from Tuesday, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has restored normal operations at the Noida City Centre Metro station. Trains will use both platforms at the station.
The DMRC has also decided to increase the peak-hour frequency of trains in the Noida section of the line from 8 minutes to 5 minutes and 20 seconds. Eight-coach trains are being inducted into service in this section to cater to the passenger rush expected during the Trade Fair.
Starting Tuesday, the DMRC has already begun running trains between Dwarka and Yamuna Bank at a frequency of 2 minutes 40 seconds between 8 am and 8 pm.
DMRC’s Executive Director, Corporate Communications, Anuj Dayal said two trains on each line will be kept as standby during Trade Fair “to facilitate better passenger handling, whenever required”.
The Delhi Metro has already taken various steps to handle the trade fair rush and passengers visiting the fair at Pragati Maidan. All Metro stations are selling tickets for the trade fair, with additional ticket counters being set up at the Pragati Maidan station.
Further, DMRC has also deployed additional staff and security to guide visitors to the trade fair, which will be held between November 19 and November 27.
