Delhi Metro Magenta Line

Magenta Line or Line 8 is built like an arc through the southern parts of Delhi. The second corridor to be opened under Delhi Metro Phase III, it is the first, though, to have driverless trains running on the communication-based train control (CBTC) technology. All trains on the line comprise six coaches, and they have a maximum speed of 80 km/h. Every station on the line has platform screen doors for enhanced safety. As with all the non-Phase I lines, Line 8 uses standard gauge (1435 mm) tracks and 25 kV alternating current supplied from overhead catenary. Magenta Line has 25 stations along a route length of 34.2 km. It is the only line on the entire system to have civilian entry restricted at one of its stations — Shankar Vihar — which is located in military area.
