Two months after Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a section of the Magenta Line of the Delhi Metro, the remaining part of the line is set to open by March end. This line will run between Botanical Garden and Janakpuri West. Currently, the section of the line between Botanical Garden and Kalkaji Mandir is functional.
Once the section between Kalkaji Mandir and Janakpuri West is operational, the travel time to Gurgaon from Noida, Faridabad and West Delhi will reduce by 45 minutes! WOAH!!
This line will also provide connectivity to the domestic terminal of the airport for the first time. It will also connect IIT and hostel area to Noida and Gurgaon.
The new station at Hauz Khas will come as a boon for commuters from Gurgaon, Noida, Faridabad, and Dwarka. Located right below the existing Hauz Khas station of HUDA City Centre-Samaipur Badli line, the station is the DEEPEST UNDERGROUND station of the Delhi Metro network.
The new station is also double the size of a normal Metro station since a massive crowd is expected once it becomes operational.
The station will also benefit the residents of Dwarka as they had to come all the way to Rajiv Chowk to board Gurgaon bound train and Mandi House for Faridabad bound train. Now, they can come till Janakpuri west, take a train for Hauz Khas and change for Gurgaon or Faridabad from there.
Cheers to DMRC for making traveling in Delhi easy!
