Metro adds colour to new extension 4.7.2015 Deccan Herald - New Delhi
An enormous station with a new colour scheme designed in-sync with the technical sophistications under DMRC's phase 4 project, a 45-metre long steel span to make trains cross the Delhi-Ambala section of the Northern Railway and an interchange facility for the next level. Such are the highlights of the new Jahangirpuri to Samaypur Badli corridor, an extension of the existing Yellow Line, on which trial runs began on Friday.

Mumbai Metro to take a break on Sunday 4.7.2015 Asian Age: Mumbai
Regular Metro users or those who want to indulge in a family outing on the air-conditioned ride this Sunday are in for a disappointment as the Mumbai Metro from Versova to Ghatkopar will not run services for seven-and-a-half hours on the day. The call has been taken in order to conduct an inspection to increase its speed from the current 50 to 80 kmph. Although this will not decrease the travel time but will only allow the motorman the option of increasing the speed between two stations if he wants. Chetan Baskhi the commissioner of railway safety (CRS) will conduct the inspection, “They have written a letter in which they have asked for the speed to be increased to 80 kmph from the existing 50 kmph for which an inspection will be done in two phases. The first phase will be the major one, where we will inspect the track for five hours by traveling on it by trolley just to test the safety of the track and if it can handle the speed of 80 kmph.” In the second stage, the rolling stock will be inspected, ...
