DELHI, INDIA (Metro Rail News): On Thursday, Delhi Metro rail Corporation Ltd (DMRC) announced that the Najafgarh-Dhansa Bus Stand extension of the Delhi Metro’s Grey Line would be thrown open to the public from 18th September 2021. Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs (MOHUA) Shri Hardeep Singh Puri and Chief Minister Shri Arvind Kejriwal will inaugurate the section via video conferencing.
The passenger services on this line will start at 5:00 PM on the same day,” said DMRC officials. With the opening of this line, the Delhi Metro network span will become 390 KMs with 286 stations.
The Najafgarh-Dhansa Bus Stand stretch, which is about one kilometre long (891 metres), will extend the metro farther into Najafgarh’s interior.
The people of the interior villages of Najafgarh, which is steeped in history, would greatly benefit from this expansion of the nearly 4.2-kilometer Grey Line (Dwarka-Najafgarh corridor).
In October 2019, the Dwarka-Najafgarh corridor opened, connecting the urban village region of Najafgarh to the rapid transit network for the first time.
The future Dhansa Bus Stand Station has been decorated with appealing artworks and pictures that depict the rich legacy, culture, flora, and biodiversity of this national capital neighbourhood.
