Wait to ride Metro will finally be over for Okhla residents.
For months residents in Okhla have been talking about one thing: When will metro operation begin?
Though no official confirmation has come by, many residents are just guessing that the their long wait to ride metro will be over finally, as work is going on at Abul Fazal Enclave, Batla House and Jamia Millia Islamia.
Just a few days ago many residents were excited when they saw road in front of Abul Fazal metro named Okhla Vihar Metro Station being paved. However, an official told OT.COM on the condition of anonymity that the metro could get operational by October.
When asked, has the date been finalised, he said like other residents they don’t know the exact date.
Staff too have been employed.
A visit in the locality gives an impression that everything is being fixed with metro trial going on from time to time.
Now, what residents want is that the metro begins its operation as soon as possible.
“Since the trial run begun a few months ago we have been waiting for the metro to get operational. It is going to be a big achievement for this locality. Moreover, residents and office goers will find it easy to visit other destinations and offices in the city. Also, the Metro will boost local economy by connecting the markets to the rest of the city,” said Javaid Iqbal Khan.
