SOLUTION OF CONGESTION PROBLEM AROUND DELHI METRO STATIONS
- Under Phase IV network, a plan has been devised to provide Multi Modal Integration underground.
- As per the plan, the commuters will have to walk under the road to pick up or drop somebody at the metro stations.
- The stations of Phase IV network will have its pick up point, one level below the ground, to eliminate congestion on roads.
- The actual reason behind this move is that most of the Metro stations face problem of overcrowding at the gate.
- Mangu Singh, MD, DMRC said, “In phase IV we are contemplating this. Since the space is not available on the street, all our underground stations will have one more level. Today we have two level stations, but in phase-IV we will try to have three levels so that one level can be used for traffic.”
Details of Phase IV
- Total Network : 103.9 Km
