New Delhi Metro station to serve as triple interchange facility

Monday, 24 June 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The New Delhi Metro station is all set to emerge as a triple interchange facility with the expansion of the Green Line from Inderlok to Indraprastha. The 12.37 km long Inderlok - Indraprastha corridor will expand the already operational Brigadier Hoshiar Singh - Inderlok Green Line corridor (28.78 km).

On this new extension, the New Delhi station will be expanded as an interchange facility where three lines including Yellow, Orange (Airport Line), and now the Green Line will meet each other, the officials said.

“This will be a major connectivity boost for the entire city as now, commuters coming from Bahadurgarh as well as parts of west Delhi such as Nangloi, Rajdhani Park, Udyog Nagar etc. Will be able to travel directly to the New Delhi railway station, adjacent to the New Delhi Metro station,” a senior official stated.

He added that this will make access to the New Delhi station more convenient and help decrease congestion near the station as more people will prefer to travel by metro than by road.

Like the existing New Delhi station, the new expansion for the Green Line shall also be underground.

Presently, Kashmere Gate is the only triple interchange station on the Delhi Metro network where the Yellow, Red, and Violet lines meet. After Phase 4, three more stations, Lajpat Nagar, Azadpur and New Delhi will also emerge as triple interchange facilities.

Currently, about 86 kilometres of new lines are being constructed as part of the Delhi Metro’s Phase 4 expansion. Construction of three lines - Janakpuri West - RK Ashram Marg (Violet), Majlis Park - Maujpur (Pink) and Aerocity - Tughlakabad (Golden) is in progress right now, and over 50 per cent of civil work has been completed on these sections.

“Two more corridors - Inderlok - Indraprastha and Saket G Block - Lajpat Nagar - have also received approval earlier this year. The DMRC at present, is processing for statutory clearances, including land taking over from DDA, CPWD and PWD and forest clearance requirements,” another official said.

Further processes regarding planning and tendering for civil works are being done before further proceeding to specialised contracts for track laying, electrical systems, signalling and other technical components.
