Getting to a railway station is a huge chore in itself, especially when it’s the Delhi railway station we are talking about. You may be coming via the metro, some other form of public transport or even a personal vehicle, but you’re bound to get stuck somewhere near the station. To combat this, the Delhi government has come up with a plan to build a skywalk that will help commuters from the metro bypass the four crowded lanes of traffic that they have to cross in order to get to the station platform.

What’s the update?

As part of the upcoming change to New Delhi Railway Station, the foot over bridge is the latest and biggest innovation. The new one will be constructed as an extension to the existing one. The skywalk will have a length of a little over 200 meters and will be equipped with state of the art facilities.

According to sources, the skywalk will be fully equipped with escalators and elevators, which makes it all the more futureproof. Upon completion, which is expected by early next year, passengers from the Delhi Metro and the Airport Line Metro will be able to directly get to the railway station platform with the help of the new skywalk.

Which area will you be able to bypass?

With the help of the upcoming state of the art skyway, you can expect to bypass majorly congested lanes. These lanes are basically the ones you come across when getting off the existing foot over bridge. This includes the entire auto rickshaw stand, the bus stand, cab lanes and some of the parking lane as well.

The fact that you no longer have to worry about missing your train even though you’re so close will be a thing of the past. The foot over bridge will surely make matters for all commuters.

Whom will it benefit?

At its core, the goal of these upcoming skywalks will be to provide the best convenience to metro travellers who have to board the trains from New Delhi Railway Station. Travellers will simply have to exit the metro stations and get to the elevated footbridge from where it will become a breeze to get to their respective platforms.
