Delhi (Metro Rail News): PM Modi inaugurated the Yashobhoomi Dwarka Sector-25 Metro Station on Sunday, 18th September, which falls on the newly developed 2.5 Km patch of the Airport Express Line in New Delhi. It became operational for the public from 3:00 PM onwards.
Yashobhoomi Dwarka Sector-25 metro station is an underground station & has three subways, including a 735-m long subway that connects the metro station to the convention centre. The Airport Express Line now has a total number of 7 stations. The Metro Station has 8 lifts, each having a capacity of 20 people at a time.
“In addition to serving the convention centre, this new station will also provide connectivity to the residents around Sector 25, Dwarka, and the new sectors along the Dwarka Expressway in neighbouring Gurugram. As a result, residents of these areas will be able to reach central Delhi in about half an hour,” Shri Anuj Dayal, principal executive director, of corporate communications at Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), said.
The speed of the lines has also been increased from the existing 110Km/hr to 120 Km/hr, which will bring down the travel time between New Delhi & IGI Airports to 15 & a half minutes. This is the third time that the operational speed of the Airport Express Line has been increased this year- DMRC increased its speed from 90 Km/hr to 100 Km/hr on March 22 & further increased to 110Km/hr on June 22.
