Delhi Metro's Magenta Line Set To Get 10 More Stations
Work has started, on December 30, 2019, to build 10 stations on the Magenta Line under the 28.92-km Janakpuri West-RK Ashram Marg corridor. The civil work is expected to be completed in 30 months.
The new stations set to be added on the route include Keshopur, Paschim Vihar, Peeragarhi, Mangolpuri, West Enclave, Pushpanjali, Deepali Chowk, Madhuban Chowk, Prashant Vihar and North Pitampura.
"As part of the work, three interchange stations, Peeragarhi (with the Green Line), Madhuban Chowk (with the Red Line) and Haiderpur Badli Mor (with the Yellow Line), will come up. In addition, the entire Janakpuri West-RK Ashram Marg corridor will have three more interchange facilities at Majlis Park (Pink Line), Azadpur (with Yellow Line) and RK Ashram Marg (with Blue Line)," an official said.
In December 2017, prime minister Narendra Modi launched a 12-kilometre stretch of the Magenta Line, connecting Noida's Botanical Garden with south Delhi's Kalkaji Mandir Metro Station. The line, planned between Botanical Garden in Noida an Janak Puri in Delhi became fully operational in May, 2018.
