Majlis Park-South Campus Metro service to start on 14 March

Statesman News Service | New Delhi |

Passenger services on Delhi Metro’s 21.5-km-long Majlis Park-Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus corridor is going to start from 14 March.

As part of Delhi Metro’s Phase three, the corridor will be inaugurated by Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs (independent charge) Hardeep Singh Puri and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

“The services would be opened for commuters from 6 p.m. on the same day. This section is part of the 59-km-long Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar corridor (Pink Line),” said a Delhi Metro statement.

The section has 12 stations including three interchange stations viz Azadpur, Netaji Subhash Place and Rajouri Garden. Metro will cross Dhaula Kuan at a height of 23.6 metres (as high as a seven-storey building) to reach South Campus from Majlis Park.

The Pink Line, one of the longest in Delhi Metro network, will function like an arc connecting north, northwest, west and south Delhi.

While the existing Delhi Metro corridors are designed as radials spread across the NCR, the Pink Line is conceptualised as a large ring that will connect all these corridors.
