New Delhi:  The safety inspection for the Kalkaji Mandir-Botanical Garden corridor of the Delhi Metro - which, once operational, will reduce the travel time between Noida and south Delhi significantly - is set to take place next week.

The Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) will inspect the new corridor from November 13-15, sources said.

Trials and testing on the 12.64-km-long section, built under the DMRC's Phase-III project, has been completed.

This section will be the metro's first-ever corridor to be operated using the Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) signaling technology that will facilitate movement of the trains with a frequency of 90 to 100 seconds.

Currently, for travelling to south Delhi areas, commuters from Noida have to change trains from Blue Line to Violet Line at the Mandi House Metro Station. After the new section of the Delhi Metro is opened, commuters will be able to travel directly to the Kalkaji Mandir Metro Station, which is on the Violet Line.

Once the 38-km corridor, named the Magenta Line from Botanical Garden till Janakpuri West is opened, commuters from Noida will be able to go to Gurgaon by changing trains at Hauz Khas.

The Botanical Garden station has been developed as the metro's first-ever interchange station outside the boundaries of Delhi.
