Traveling from South Delhi to Noida and West Delhi was never easier! The remaining portion of the Magenta Line connecting south Delhi to Noida and west Delhi in one stretch is expected to be open to the public within this month.
A segment of the 37 km line is already in service since December last year. The 12.64-km-long Botanical Garden – Kalkaji Mandir stretch was opened to the public on December 25, 2017.
The line once open will put people from localities such as Munirka and Chirag Delhi on the Metro Map with direct connectivity to Noida!
Magenta Line will have 25 stations in total which include 10 elevated stations, and 15 underground. This would include south Delhi localities such as Vasant Vihar, Munirka, and IIT Delhi, which are not yet connected with direct metro for either Noida or West Delhi.
The corridor has already brought Noida and South Delhi closer, but when the line gets extended to Janakpuri West, the distance between Gurgaon and Noida will also lessen with the availability of an interchange point at the Hauz Khas station, which is said to be the deepest underground station of the Delhi Metro Network.
Located right below the existing Hauz Khas Metro Station, the new station is double the size of a normal metro station since a massive crowd is expected.
The Magenta Line is also set to have 7 subways on the busiest roads of the city saving us from all the pedestrian traffic and road rage!
These 7 subways will be launched at the Munirka, RK Puram, IIT, Panchsheel Park, Chirag Delhi, Greater Kailash and Nehru Enclave stations of the Magenta Line, and these subways won’t just be limited to people using the metro.
Cheers to DMRC for making traveling in Delhi easy!
