Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Delhi metro is one of the most quintessential thing about the city. It is a daily driver of over lakhs of people and has quickly grown into one of the most busy metro systems in the world.

Only recently, Delhi metro overtook Paris Metro to become the 7th busiest metro in the world. Now, Delhi metro is expanding even more with the upcoming Grey Line.

Delhi Metro’s upcoming line, the Grey line will connect more areas in the Dwarka side of the city. The line will have 4 metro stations, two under ground and two over head. Areas such as Dwarka Sector 21 will be connected to Dhansa Bus Stand by the upcoming Grey Line. Grey Line is expected to have an interchange station at Dwarka metro station and will have a length of 4.2 kilometres.

The areas that the metro will cover are Dhansa Bus Stand, Najafgarh, Nangli and Dwarka. The four stations come as a relief to the residents of west Delhi and Dwarka as more areas are now connected via the metro. Delhi metro was always very convenient and now it just brings more connectivity. Even towards Noida, Delhi metro is expanding and connecting more areas.

The corridor is part of Phase 3 of the Delhi metro and is expected to be open for commuters by September 2019.

As of now, these are all the details that we have about the expansion so stay tuned for more. Delhi Metro authorities also announced plans for a few other expansions in other parts of the city, which we’re looking forward to.
