NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): The upcoming Delhi Metro Grey Line, which will bring one of the most congested areas of the national capital on the Delhi Metro network, will soon have the very first dumbbell-shaped station.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is constructing the Najafgarh station of Delhi Metro Grey Line as dumbbell-shaped due to lack of space in the area and to decongest the traffic flow across the roads.

A DMRC spokesperson told that the Najafgarh station was initially planned in the regular rectangle shape. However, when the construction work began on-ground, some of the private lands could not be acquired for the project.

Due to this, the Delhi metro had no other option but to plan the metro station with the land which was available to them. The dumbbell-shaped station will be completed in such a way that the station area will shrink by a few meters in the middle, but the DMRC engineers have not compromised with the space required for passenger movement in either the ticketing area or the platform area.

Lengthwise the Najafgarh metro station will be 88 meters longer than the length of a regular Delhi Metro station. The actual length of the station is 288 meters, while the length of an average metro station is 200 meters. The platform length of the station is also nearly 195 meters, as against the average 140 meters

The Delhi Metro Grey Line is an extremely beneficial metro line as it will connect the rural pockets of Najafgarh with Dwarka. According to DMRC, the construction work on the corridor has been completed and it is likely to open for passengers by the month of October.

Delhi Metro Grey Line has a total of three stations, namely, Dwarka, Nangli and Najafgarh. It will provide a link with the existing Delhi Metro Blue Line, between Dwarka sector-21 and Noida Electronic City and Vaishali. By the year 2020, the Delhi Metro Grey Line will be connected with another station at the Dhansa Bus Stand.
