Phase 3 Update (Janakpuri West – Kalindi Kunj)
Two more stations are slated to come up on the Janakpuri West – Kalindi Kunj Metro corridor. While, one station will come up at Sadar Bazar near Palam, the other one will come up at Shankar Vihar between the Domestic Airport and Vasant Vihar.
The main reason for the inclusion of these stations is that, the distance between the already planned Palam and Domestic Airport Metro stations and then from the Domestic Airport Metro station till the Vasant Vihar Metro station was approximately four kilometres each. Additional stations in between will be able to cater to the requirements of the local people in a better way.
The station at Sadar Bazar will be located near the Indian Oil depot on the left of the road, while the Shankar Vihar station will come up in the defence area by the side of National Highway 8. Both will be elevated stations.
The other stations of this 33.494 km long corridor are: Janakpuri West, Janakpuri C-2B, Dabri Mor, Dhasrath Puri, Palam, IG Domestic Airport, Vasant Vihar, Munirka, R.K Puram, IIT, Hauz Khas, Panchsheel Park, Chirag Delhi, G.K Enclave, Nehru Place, Kalkaji, Okhla Ph 3, Ishwar Nagar, Jamia Nagar, Okhla Vihar, Jasola Vihar and Kalindi Kunj. (Amity NOIDA and Botanical Garden will be the additional stations on the proposed Kalindi Kunj – Botanical Garden extension)
