Kolkata Metro services modified for extension work: Official
Normal services of Kolkata Metro Railway would be partially affected from November 17 to December 2 in view of the Metro Railway's proposed extension work between Dum Dum station and Noapara on the northern fringe of the city, officials said.
According to Metro Railway Deputy General Manager Pratuysh Ghosh, as a result of the fortnight long 'traffic block' the frequency of Metro services on week days would be temporarily modified.
Accordingly, he said, Metro services from Monday to Friday during 07.00 hours and 07.30 hrs would be operated in every 15 minutes, between 07.30 hours and 08.20 hours in every ten minutes, between 08.20 hours and 08.36 hours in every eight minutes, between 08.36 hours and 20.00 hours every six minutes, between 20.00 hours and 21.00 hours every ten minutes and between 21.00 hours and 21.45 hours again in every 15 minutes.
However, during Saturday and Sunday the services would remain as usual, Mr Ghosh said.
