Metro maps two more stations near domestic airport
According to the initial plan, stations were plotted at Palam, the domestic airport and Vasant Vihar, all at a distance of four kilometer each. Usually, Metro stations are plotted at a distance of one to two kilometers apart.
Sometimes, a longer distance is maintained between two stations when a stoppage is not required in between. However, following surveys, Delhi Metro has now decided to come up with two more stations, both elevated, on the Janakpuri-West-Kalindi Kunj corridor.
“The main reason for the inclusion of these stations is that the distance between the already planned Palam and Domestic Airport Metro stations and then from the Domestic Airport Metro station till the Vasant Vihar Metro station was approximately four kilometres each. Additional stations in between will be able to cater to the requirements of locals,” said a DMRC spokesperson.
The station at Sadar Bazaar will be located near the Indian Oil depot on the left of the road, while the Shankar Vihar station will come up in the defence area near National Highway 8.
The other stations along the 33.494 km long corridor are: Janakpuri-West, Janakpuri C-2B, Dabri Mor, DashrathPuri, Palam, IGI Domestic Airport, Vasant Vihar, Munirka, R K Puram, IIT, Hauz Khas, Panchsheel Park, Chirag Dilli, Greater Kailash Enclave, Nehru Place, Kalkaji, Okhla Phase-III, Ishwar Nagar,
