NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Saturday, 7th May announced on Twitter that R.K Ashram Marg Metro station on Blue Line is being converted into an interchange hub. It will be connecting R.K Ashram Marg Metro station of Magenta Line. Commuters will have access to alternate & shorter routes from Central to North Delhi because of this development. The new underground station will be constructed adjacent to the existing elevated station. This interchange will provide a convenient mode of transit and will help in decongesting the busy blue line.
This development comes a day after the Delhi government said that it will start a project to improve last-mile connectivity for commuters at the IIT Delhi and the Panchsheel Park metro stations. Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia approved the construction work of two multi-modal integration systems which will be constructed at the cost of Rs 4.59 crore and will be completed with the combined efforts of the Public Work Department (PWD) and the DMRC, that will result in cost reduction of the project as well as save time.
