Metrolite, a cheaper, smaller and slower urban rail transit system is set to ply from Rithala to Narela in the national capital as part of Delhi Metro’s Phase IV project. A lot similar to the normal Delhi Metro, Metrolite trains sports only three coaches and can accommodate around 300 passengers in one go.
The 22-km stretch will see trains running on a rail corridor that has been fenced on both sides, reported The Times of India. This is unlike similar rail projects that ply in other cities around the world, where the vehicle shares road space with other modes of transport.
Mangu Singh, the managing director of the DMRC said that even though the Lajpat Nagar-Saket G Block and Inderlok-Inderprastha corridors of Phase IV of the Delhi Metro development were considered for the surface level Metrolite system, they will be getting regular metro corridors.
Singh added that they decided that Metrolite would have 100 percent right of way and same average speed as the metro. Read More
