WAP 4 was and is always good ( my fav due to its livery) for non stop trains. It can do 130kmph and maintain it but with time technology improves and result is three phase locos WAP 5 and 7 which are better in terms of power consumption and acceleration.

This route will be useful for IT Professionals to travel from South Kolkata (Parnasaree, Taratala, New Alipore, Tollygunje, Bansdroni, New Garia, etc.) to satellite townships' IT Hubs like Salt Lake Sector - 5 and Rajarhat New Town Action Area - 1, 2 and probably 3 too.
.
Recent news reports suggest that Infosys is interested to set up its Kolkata Campus in New Town Action Area 3 plot. At the moment, there's only 1 AC Bus of Route AC4A run by the WBTC (CSTC Wing) that connects South Kolkata's Parnasree to Sapoorji Estate in Action Area - 3. But this

last Sapoorji Bus Terminal also seems to be quite distant from the Chotto Chandpur Area where Infosys may set up its building. At the moment, the transport connectivity between New Town's Action Areas and South Kolkata is very poor !!!

The front facade of our office i.e.Kolkata Airport Stg Div is set to be demolished for construction of one more flyover for ease of metro operation. Already DDC BNBA EMU services have been stopped & OHE removed because this section is set to be converted into Metro corridor. Our office is already ready with alternate entry exit point constructed behind Airport Authority of India complex.

Sir, I really wonder that why didn't the EMU services run by ER attract a great bulk of commuters from Airport Station to other parts of Kolkata City ? Let's hope that the Kolkata Metro attracts some people from New Garia, Sector-5, New Town, etc. towards Airport side :)

What could we expect from a Metro Service which has an operating ratio of even more than 250%. Frankly speaking, Indian Railways should pull itself out from Kolkata metro.
