NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): The Aerocity Metro station is going to convert into a major interchange station after its expansion which will connect it to the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) station, Airport Express Line and Tughlakabad-Aerocity Silver Line corridor. The Aerocity station will become Delhi Metro’s third major triple interchange station, after Kashmere Gate and Azadpur.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has decided to expand the Aerocity Metro station under its phase-4 project which will connect tthe existing station to the under-construction Tughlakabad-Aerocity Silver Line corridor. This station will also have connectivity at the concourse level, between the Airport Express Line and the new Silver Line. National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) will also have interconnecting facilities for its RRTS station at Aerocity for the proposed corridor to Alwar in the future.
According to a DMRC official, the upcoming Aerocity Metro station will cross diagonally to the proposed RRTS station. Commuters will not have to exit the Metro station and use a subway or foot overbridge to reach the RRTS station, as they can just go from the Metro concourse to the RRTS platform. The new interchange facility is going to boost connectivity for various areas of South Delhi.
The Aerocity station will become Delhi Metro’s third major triple interchange station, after Kashmere Gate and Azadpur.
