Delhi Metro Rail
The city is a capital to the world's largest democracy and therefore it has great importance in the political, economical, social and cultural aspects. Being the capital of a large country, it is necessary that it has a large and world class infrastructure that includes airways, roadways, railways, and the modern Delhi metro rail. The Delhi metro rail is a gift to the people of Delhi and is considered as the city's life line. People in Delhi are very much dependent on the Delhi Metro as they have to commute daily to faraway places within the city. It has got world recognition for its hi-tech rail and efficient transport system. It is solely responsible for reducing the traffic on the roads to a large extent and decreasing the pressure of the roads.
Future plans of Delhi Metro
With the present metro I and II, running on a successful path, plans have been made for Delhi Metro Phase 3 that will take the metro around the entire city. The Government has ambitious plan to extend the service to several parts of the city as there are lots of people who need to commute to various parts of the city. Being a large city, it is a need of the people of Delhi to have good transport system. The new Phase III is a 105 km network and most of the plans are now ready. The plans are to cover Yamuna Vihar-Mukundpur corridor, which will be the longest line in the Delhi Metro network that will cover around 55.9 kms. The major stations on this route will be Mukundpur, Rajouri Garden, Dhaula Kaun, Anand Vihar and culminate at Yamuna Vihar.
Facts of Phase III
Delhi metro phase III will also cover outer area like the Bawana and the inner most circle like the Jamia Nagar, which is a very congested area. The metro will start with the extension of the HUDA city center to central secretariat line to the Red Fort. The significant thing about the Phase III metro is that it will have 23 interchangeable stations for seamless connectivity. Apart from this, another addition is the coverage of the Jamia Milia University that will extend from the Nehru place and go up to cover the outer Ring road. It is supposed to be a busy line with the university and school students commuting daily on this route. Kalkaji is the interchange station here and will be beneficial to the commuters who are largely students.
