Later on, in stages, the new signaling technology to be implemented on this corridor and Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) will also undergo rigorous testing, it said.

The response of the train at different speeds, braking of the train and the inter-connection with the Operations Control Centre (OCC) will also be monitored during the trials. The behavior of the track system and the Over Head Electrification (OHE) will be checked repeatedly, the release added.

According to the release, Line 8 will have a total length of 38 km, including the Kalindi Kunj – Botanical Garden portion of 3.494 km. It will have 25 stations, including ten elevated stations and 15 underground stations.

The line is expected to have an estimated ridership of 3, 61,356, and three train sets have already been received in the Kalindi Kunj Depot.
