In good news for the metro travellers in Delhi, the Azadpur metro station is going to become the second station in the national capital with triple interchange facility for the metro lines. The Azadpur station will allow the passengers to be connected to three corridors of the mass rapid transit system in the city: Yellow line, Pink line, and the upcoming Phase IV RK Ashram-Janakpuri West corridor. The Kashmere Gate metro station is the only other station in Delhi which has a triple interchange facility.
The Azadpur metro station currently has an elevated station for the yellow line corridor of the metro, while the platforms for the pink line corridor are underground. The upcoming Phase IV metro link connecting RK Ashram and Janakpuri West will have paid-to-paid area connectivity with both the yellow and the pink line stations at Azadpur.
The new phase will boost connectivity as it will link Azadpur with its peripheral areas directly. Passengers on this new corridor will be able to get an easy connection with places like Pulbangash, Sadar Bazar, Derawal Nagar, and Ghanta Ghar, as well as areas like Mangolpuri, Peeragarhi, Madhuban Chowk, and Pitampura in the North-west areas of Delhi.
As many of these areas are only connected via busy roads, especially the stretch between the Sadar Bazar and the Ghanta Ghar, the new line under Phase IV would also provide relief from constant road congestion.
According to estimates, as many as 30,000 new passengers are expected to use the RK Ashram-Janakpuri West metro link after it is opened to the public. At present, the Azadpur metro station witnesses a footfall of about 15,000 passengers every day.
The new stretch between RK Ashram and Janakpuri West would cover a distance of 28.92 km.
