All about the metro line that’s got Delhi pink and going
The word lifeline is best suited for the Delhi Metro. The project that once began with a single route, is now spread ac
ross the city. With multiple locations interconnected, it has made commuting easy for all.
While the existing routes are experiencing an increase in the number of passengers daily, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is bringing in new routes to aid people. The Pink Line, which is the largest metro line is now operational.
The new line covers an entirely different route connecting many new areas. Successful Pink Line trial run led to the opening of this line earlier than the proposed time. While DMRC looked forward to opening it near September, the operations for the first phase between Majlis Park and Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus began on March 14, 2018 itself. The second section between Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus and Lajpat Nagar began working on August 6, 2018. The entire distance, when the line is operational will be around 58 Km, between Mukundpuri and Shivpuri.
What makes Pink Line unique is its connectivity with all the other lines. With Azadpur and INA on the Yellow line, Netaji Subhash Place and Welcome on the RedLine, Punjabi Bagh West on the Green Line, Rajouri Garden, Mayur Vihar Phase 1, Anand Vihar, Karkarduma on the Blue Line, South Campus on the Orange Line, and Lajpat Nagar on the Violet Line.
The Pink Line Delhi Metro opening has brought people closer to destinations that once seemed far away. Running parallel to the ring road, it is just the right step that was needed to keep Delhi roads sane.
Another major benefit that the Pink line has brought is that it connects all the major railway stations, namely New Delhi Railway Station, Anand Vihar and Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station.
