Four Metro coaches have been delivered to the Greater Noida depot station of Noida Metro Rail Corporation’s (NMRC) Noida-Greater Noida Metro link. NMRC had wanted to conduct the dry run of the link by December-end but due to lack of proper power supply, it will be now delayed to mid-January.
NMRC has written to the Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL) to provide power for the dry run by December-end. Initially, NMRC had considered using the alternate power supply from the depot, provided by RC Green, but later decided that it was not sufficient.
The four coaches reached Greater Noida on Thursday morning from Nanjing, China. Each coach costs around Rs11 crore. The coaches were brought from the Mundra port of Gujarat by road, officials said.
