The new years seems to have kept DMRC busy! Doing their part in keeping Delhi green and clean, Delhi Metro has transformed eight pillars along its elevated Blue Line between Mandi House and Pragati Maidan stations into beautiful green vertical gardens!
The idea was first conceptualized in Mexico City and this will not only beautify the surroundings but also fight pollution. Each square meter of these vertical gardens will be able to generate enough oxygen supply enough for one individual’s year long consumption!
In India, Kochi Metro was the first among the Metro Rail corporations to build a vertical garden, followed by Bangalore and now Delhi. These vertical gardens in Delhi are located at the junction of Sikandra Road, Tilak Marg and Mathura Road.
Soon DMRC will be covering a couple more areas with these vertical gardens!
