Delhi Metro has decided to construct pedestrian subways in seven of the Metro stations on the 27km long Jankapuri West –Kalindi Kunj corridor. The corridor will be constructed as part of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation’s phase-3 in the next four years. The seven stations include Munirka, RK Puram, IIT, Panchsheel Park, Chirag Delhi, GK Enclave and Nehru Place.
These underpasses will be of great use to pedestrians to cross the road, especially senior citizens and women. Major residential and commercial areas such as Munirka, RK Puram, Panchsheel, GK Enclave, CR Park and Nehru Place will benefit immensely. People will be able to cross the road to reach the bus stop or the market, without buying a Metro ticket.
This is wonderful initiative by Delhi Metro, and the pedestrian facilities will definitely bring huge relief to pedestrians.
