are extremely congested with very limited space for parking of vehicles. The
parking space will have ramps on two sides for entry and exit of vehicles.

operates parking lots in about 100 Metro stations across the network.
Work on the
1.8 kilometre long Najafgarh – Dhansa Bus Stand section is now almost complete.
With the completion of this section, the Dwarka - Dhansa Bus Stand Grey Line
corridor will become 6.1 kilometres long with four stations. This extension
will immensely benefit the residents of the interior areas around Najafgarh.
All efforts are being made to open the Najafgarh - Dhansa Bus Stand section sometime
later this month after complying with all statutory requirements.
