New Delhi: Metro services on the Central
Secretariat-Sarita Vihar corridor will begin an hour late
instead of the usual timing from Sunday to facilitate the
integration process of the Sarita Vihar-Badarpur section with
the existing line.

From tomorrow till October 24, services on the line
will begin at 7.00 am instead of the usual 6.00 am, a DMRC spokesman
said.

This is necessary to give DMRC`s signalling,
telecommunication, electrical and track engineers more working
time for the linkage and integration at the Sarita Vihar
station, he said.

The Sarita Vihar-Badarpur section is likely to be
integrated with the existing Central Secretariat-Sarita Vihar
line by the end of this month.

Normal train services from 6.00 am on this section will
be restored from October 25 onwards.

However, Metro train services on all other lines will
remain normal and will commence services from 6.00 am as usual,
the spokesman added.
