The 30km long Noida-Greater Noida Metro Link’s trail is going to commence in April. The NMRC – Noida Metro Rail Corporation confirms the trial of this long stretch after the UPPTCL i.e the Uttar Pradesh Power Transmission Corporation Limited gave its nod for the disbursal of electricity immediately.
The trial was scheduled to start in December 2017 but got delayed due to the insufficient power supply from UPPTCL that pushed the Noida-Greater Noida Metro Rail trial for the tenure of more than three months. Mr. PD Upadhyay, Executive Director, NMRC was quoted saying, “The UPPTCL has started supplying 400KV electricity supply from its Sector 148 power substation from February 28 to the 30km Noida-Greater Noida Metro link. UPPTCL’s top officials have also conducted an inspection and written to their staff in Noida to immediately start power supply. It is good news because now, we can start trials on this Metro link in April and make way for commercial operations after completing the necessary formalities related to safety.”
