With Delhi Metro gearing up to throw open the ITO station early next year, commuters can look forward to a seamless ride to the perennially clogged area, which houses several government establishments. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will do trial runs on the Mandi House to ITO stretch by the end of this month, which if successful will be followed by the official opening of the stretch.

safety parameters will be checked during the trial runs. The trial runs have no deadline as such. They will continue for at least one-and-a-half-months if not more,” the official said.
Following the trial runs, the Delhi Metro will have to obtain the mandatory safety clearance from the commissioner of Metro railway safety without which the station cannot be thrown open to commuters. “Getting a safety clearance from the commissioner of Metro Railway safety is a must. It shall come provided the trial runs are successful. Immediately after that the line will be thrown open to the commuters,” the spokesperson added.
The Mandi House to ITO stretch is a part of the upcoming Central Secretariat to Kashmere Gate corridor of the Delhi Metro’s Phase III network, which will have stations at the historical Red Fort, Jama Masjid and Delhi Gate areas.
The ITO station, according to officials, is almost ready as all the civil work has been completed. A pedestrian subway through the station, connecting Delhi police headquarters to the Institution of Engineers (India) building, was thrown open in August. Once operational, around 22,000 passengers are expected to use the station daily and the number is likely to rise to 31,000, according to detailed project report of the DMRC.With Delhi Metro gearing up to throw open the ITO station early next year, commuters can look forward to a seamless ride to the perennially clogged area, which houses several government establishments.
