Delhi Metro will script yet another chapter in its history on Friday when a train will chug into the satellite city of Gurgaon as the trial runs on the much-awaited line will begin.

Union Urban Development Minister S Jaipal Reddy and Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda will inaugurate the trial runs from HUDA City Centre Metro Station and the Sultanpur Metro Station, a DMRC spokesman said.

The first trial Metro train will be flagged-off from the HUDA City Centre Metro Station.

The trial runs on this section will cover a distance of approximately 11 kms which will have stations at HUDA City Centre, IFFCO Chowk, MG Road, Sikandarpur, Guru Dronacharya, Arjangarh, Ghitorni and Sultanpur.

The DMRC plans to inaugurate the line by April and the corridor is expected to draw thousands of more people to the new age transport system.

The stretch is part of the Metro's 14-km-long Qutub Minar-Gurgaon line.
