The biggest attraction of this station will be a Joint Escalator. In terms of length and height, it will be the largest escalator of Delhi Metro network so far. In front of it, the escalators on the Kashmiri Gate will also look small. According to the DMRC, the eight-piece Joint Escalator will directly connect the elevated station of Janakpuri West to the Underground Station. The height is 15.650 meters and the length is 35.303 meters. Simply put, the height of the 5-storey house will be its height. The escalator is located at Kashmiri Gate station, its height is 14.475 meters and the length is 33.268 meters. Here is another joint escalator, whose height is 15.560 meters and the length is 35.147 meters. 15 escalators and 5 high-efficiency lifts have been installed at the new interchange station.

Phase-3 will run a new metro from Janakpuri West to Noida’s Botanical Garden. It has been named the Magenta Line. On this line, the part from Kalkaji temple to Botanical Gardens has started since December 25 last year. Now the line from Janakpuri West to Kalkaji temple is yet to start. The opening of this section will greatly benefit the people of West Delhi. They will get direct connectivity to go to South Delhi and Noida. Right now, through the Blue Line, it has to cross 28 stations to reach the Botanical Garden from Janakpuri West. Only 24 stations will have to cross the Majanta line.
