The magenta line which was recently started last year will add up few more metro stations now connecting Gurugram to Noida. With the operations started for the public from Tuesday morning, the new metro route will cut the travel time to nearly 30 minutes between Noida and Gurugram.
On Monday at 4.30 pm, Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will flagged off the new route of Janakpuri West–Kalkaji Mandir metro route from the Nehru Enclave Metro Station and will travel to the Hauz Khas metro station.
However, unlike the other Delhi Metro route, the new magenta metro connection is different due to some major takeaways by the following reasons.
This new section of the Magenta line is the longest route opened so far in the DMRC’s Phase-III project including 16 underground stations and 2 elevated metro stations.
With the inauguration of the new stations connecting Noida and Gurugram, the terminal 1 of the IGI Airport will also be connected with the metro network.
The magenta line is famous to be known as the knowledge corridor as it connects Jamia Milia Islamia University with Amity University in Noida but with the new route, another two major universities of Delhi-NCR, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) will also get connected now.
To reduce the stress on the Rajiv Metro station to a great extent, new interchangeable facility between Janakpuri West and Hauz Khas will be available with the new route on Magenta line.
