Public transportation in Delhi has been receiving one upgrade after the other. When it comes down to operation and footfall, the Delhi metro’s fervour is unmatched, the metro network is wide, it is everywhere and still expanding.

Soon after the launch of the Blue and Red line Extensions, the union cabinet approved three major metro corridors in Delhi that will make for a smoother and better connected metro system.

What’s the update?

The union cabinet, a few days ago, approved three new corridors for Delhi Metro. The corridors include Mukundpur to Maujpur, RK Ashram to Janakpuri West and Aero City to Tughlakabad.

These are expected to provide relief to the daily commuters as well as help in curbing the increasing pollution issue in the city.

The Facts

The three corridors together are expected to be 62 kilometers long. Delhi Metro’s Phase IV will have 36 stations, out of which 17 will be underground and 29 will be elevated.

Why is it important?

The corridor, though extremely significant in curbing the traffic issue of Delhi NCR and providing relief to commuters, it will also become pivotal in decreasing the pollution in the city. The Delhi Metro will provide for an alternative mode of transportation to the people living in the nearby areas, decreasing the usage of personal vehicles, in-turn decreasing the vehicular pollution.

Knock Knock

There’s no doubt about the fact that metro is the lifeline of transportation in Delhi. If not for the metro, who knows where the traffic and pollution issues of the city would have reached. The Delhi Metro is a constant source of relief for the commuters as well as the environment and corridor is expected to add on to the same.
