Delhi Metro is undoubtedly the lifeline of the city and the metro line always tries to upgrade themselves to provide better facilities for the travellers. The metro line is the biggest in the country and its web of network has spread across the entire state and the borders to make commute and life easier for the people. And in its attempt to do that, Delhi metro set a world record last year.

The metro line connecting Lajpat Nagar and Mayur Vihar Pocket one is a small section covering 9.7 kilometers and has made it easier for people to commute between east and south Delhi. The station which opened last year in December as a New Year’s gift to the residents of the national capital is built in an area of 151.6 meters. The station is 113.6 meters smaller than an average station that is usually built in an area of 256 kilometers.

Not just that, the station also celebrates the theme of motherhood, ‘mother and child’ to be specific and according to a report in HT the colour scheme of the station denotes abundance. The colourful artwork that the station adorns is also in line with the theme.

Hindrance in land acquisition helped set the world record

The station came to be when the Delhi Metro rail Corporation (DMRC) was stuck in a long land acquisition battle they were not able to get enough space for a regular sized station. The designer of the metro station, rather than waiting for another couple of years decided to build a station that was more compact. With the land rates soaring and the area being one of the busiest in Delhi, the space saving station was more viable.

The station is built with space saving measures which reduced the station’s size to almost half the size of an average metro station. The station is made vertically to save on the horizontal space. Unlike just two leveled stations, this metro station has been built on three levels.

The station is said to have created a model design for future stations everywhere that will not only save space but will also be smarter and more efficient.
