New Delhi: Delhi Metro today introduced one additional train on the Dwarka Line, the "most heavily crowded" line in the new age transport system.

With this, the number of trains on the Dwarka Sector-9 to Noida City Centre/Anand Vihar, have increased to 43.

"This line is the most heavily crowded line and is also the longest line in operation at present carrying 48 per cent of the total ridership on the Metro system," a DMRC spokesperson said.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, which had 41 trains at the time of inauguration of the Anand Vihar extension on 7th January, added one additional train on 18th January.

With the introduction of today's train, the DMRC will be able to run seventy eight additional train trips between Yamuna Bank and Dwarka everyday with thirty nine of these trips running further up to Noida City Centre and the remaining thirty nine trips going till Anand Vihar as only alternate trains go towards these two destinations after Yamuna Bank.

The introduction of this additional train will enable DMRC to reduce congestion on Line-3/4 as over ninety thousand persons will be accommodated everyday on these seventy eight trips, the spokesperson said.

It is expected that a further additional train will be added in another 10 days to further ease the traffic.
