NEW DELHI: The busy corridors of Delhi Metro - Noida and Gurgaon - are slated to get eight-coach trains by the end of next year with the aim to ease over-crowding.It is believed that both the corridors - Noida City Centre-Dwarka and Jahangir Puri-HUDA City Centre - are considered as the busiest lines on the Delhi Metro network and carry more than 13 lakh passengers on every day basis. More than 20 lakh commuters in the national capital use the Metro every day.Delhi Metro chief Mangu Singh stated that DMRC has placed orders for buying train cars which would be added to the current trains.Singh said, “By the end of 2013, more than half of the trains on Line 2 (Jahangir Puri-HUDA City Centre) will be eight coach ones. Likewise, half of the trains on Line 3 (Noida City Centre-Dwarka) will also have eight coach ones. The rest on these lines...
would be six-coach trains.”While 60 trains presently run on Line 2, Line 3 got 71 trains.
