Delhi Metro's Pink Line timings changed due to technical work
Delhi Metro has temporarily changed the timings of train services on the Pink Line due to technical work beginning today. There will be "minor temporary changes" in the first and last train timings from the terminal stations, interchange stations and other stations of the two operational sections of Pink Line, Majlis Park to Lajpat Nagar and Trilokpuri-Sanjay Lake to Shiv Vihar, the officials said.
The changes were made to facilitate technical integration of various systems for the corridor extension from Lajpat Nagar till Mayur Vihar Pocket-1. Normal train timings will be restored on the two sections from December 9 once the integration work is successfully carried out, an official said. Delhi Metro will be undertaking upgrading work from late night hours till early morning hours from December 3-8.
"During this period, there will be minor variation (0-75 minutes) in the first and last train timings for the trains originating from either end of these two operational sections," a senior official said. As per the modified timetable, for example, the last train running from Majlis Park to Lajpat Nagar would leave at 9.35 pm instead of 11 pm otherwise, he added.
"For the rest of the day during this period, train services on these two sections will be running as per normal schedule," the official said. "Delhi Metro advises commuters who are early morning/late night hour metro users on these sections to check the timings from DMRC website/helpline 155370 and plan their travel accordingly," DMRC said. Additional staff will also be deployed, the corporation added.
