Delhi Metro was brought to Delhi in 2002, and it’s legit the best thing that has happened to Delhiites! It’s been 17 years since the inauguration of the oldest Metro corridor in Delhi, the Red Line that connects Rithala to Shaheed Sthal New Bus Adda, and it’s finally time for some upgradation. Keep scrollin’ to find out more about this news.

A Much-Needed Makeover | More than 40 six-coach metros are plying on the Red Line and a lot of them are around 15 -17 years old. There’s wear & tear in these age-old coaches, and the refurbishment will ensure smooth running and operations. Air conditioning systems, floor repair, suspension, painting, anti-corrosion measures are amongst the upgrades that will be made. 

Currently, trains on this corridor have stickers to display the stations and it will be upgraded with digital display panels. There will also be a new paint job with special water-based paint on 280 coaches. The interiors of the coaches will also be given a new, modern look and the whole process will take around 20-24 months. 

We can’t wait to see the new look of the Red Line, what about you?
