Delhi Metro: Green Line will soon be interconnected with Pink Line

New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Thursday announced the construction of an additional interchange facility connecting the Metro’s Green Line (Inderlok/Kirti Nagar-Bahadurgarh) and Pink Line (Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar) at the Punjabi Bagh West Metro station.

For the construction of this facility, from June 18 to September 30, the timings of the first and the last train on the Green Line will be altered slightly, a DMRC statement said.

The DMRC said that the first and the last metro train services between Brigadiar Hoshiar Singh (Bahadurgarh) and Inderlok/Kirti Nagar will be  regulated from June 18-19 night till September 30, the DMRC statement issued on Thursday indicated.

“This is the first time that such a special ‘halt platform’ is being planned to connect two already operational Metro corridors. This halt platform will provide interconnectivity between the Green and the Pink Line at the Punjabi Bagh West Metro station of the Pink Line,” the  statement read.

“There will not be any ticketing facility on the interchange platforms, but boarding and de-boarding facilities will be available as a result of which passengers who want to interchange trains between  the two lines, will be able to use the facility. The platforms will be connected by a 230 metres long foot over bridge (FOB), which will connect the platforms with the Punjabi Bagh West Metro station of the Pink Line,” it added.

DMRC said that from June 18 between Brigadiar Singh (Bahadurgarh) – Inderlok, the first train will now start at 7am and the  last train will leave the station at 9 pm. On the Brigadiar Hoshiar  Singh-Kirti Nagar section, the first train will start at 7.18 am, while the last train is now timed at 9.10 pm.

Between Inderlok and  Brigadiar Hoshiar Singh and Kirti Nagar and Brigadiar Hoshiar Singh  sections, the timing of the first train will now be 7.25 am, and the last time will be 9.30 pm.

At present, there is no interconnectivity between the two corridors. This facility will be of great benefit to passengers travelling to and from the satellite city of Bahadurgarh and other outer Delhi areas such as Mundka, Nangloi etc.
