The Dwarka-Najafgarh corridor, known as the Grey Line, of the Delhi Metro’s Phase-3 is ready to open soon as trial run on this route started last month. "During the trial runs, the interaction of the metro train with physical infringements (civil structure) were checked to ensure that there is no physical blockage during the movement of the train on the track," the DMRC said.

"Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) Janak Kumar Garg will inspect the 4.295-km Dwarka-Najafgarh section of Delhi Metro on Wednesday," PTI quoted a senior DMRC official as saying.
