Delhi Metro`s Interchange Stations In Phase-3 To Bring Down Various Metro Stations Closers By upto 15 KMs

Published on : Tuesday, February 18, 2014

DMRC-150x150The expansion of the Delhi Metro network by the end of Phase-3 in the form of Line-7 Majlis Park (Mukundpur) to Shiv Vihar and Line-8, Janakpuri West to Botanical Garden will bring many Metro stations much closer to each other in contrast to what they at present. The crisscrossing of Phase-3 lines with the existing lines at many places will lead to emergence of several interchange stations, thus, shortening the distance between two different parts of the city by upto 15 KMs at some locations.



Presently, there are nine (9) interchange stations — Rajiv Chowk, Kashmere Gate, Central Secretariat, Inderlok, Ashok Park Main, Yamuna Bank, Dwarka Sec 21, New Delhi and Kirti Nagar. Once Phase-3 becomes fully operational by 2016, the Delhi Metro network will have 13 more interchange hubs across the city.This includes Hauz Khas, INA, Rajouri Garden, Mayur Vihar phase-I, Azadpur, Netaji Subhash Place, Lajpat Nagar, Anand Vihar, Karkardooma, Welcome, Kalkaji Mandir, Botanical Garden and Mandi House.



With the coming up of interchange stations at Karkarduma and Anand Vihar in Phase-3, the present day distance of these stations from nearest Metro station Welcome will come down drastically to 4.34 KMs and 5.49 KMs from the 19.26 KMs and 20.32 KMs respectively if going by a Metro train. Thus, bringing them closer by almost 15 KMs which will not only save travel time but will also help in saving money for the passengers.Similarly, with the coming up of other interchange stations of Phase-3, Commuters in almost all parts of Delhi will be able to change trains without going to the present interchange stations like Rajiv Chowk and Central Secretariat.
