New Delhi: The remaining portion of Magenta Line (Janakpuri West-Botanical Garden), connecting south Delhi to Noida and west Delhi in one stretch, is expected to be open for public within this month. Already, a segment of the 37 km line is in service since December last year. The Botanical Garden-Kalkaji Mandir (12.64 km) stretch was opened to public on December 25, 2017.
- A metro official said,”The remaining portion (Kalkaji – Janakpuri West) is almost ready for operation. It is very likely that in one week we will send the request for inspection to the Railway Safety Commissioner… in any case, the line will be open for public within this month.”
- Once open, the line will put people from such localities as Munirka, Chirag Delhi, and other nearby locations on the metro map with direct connectivity to Noida.
- The Magenta Line of Delhi Metro will have 25 stations in total (10 elevated & 15 underground) and will have stations at south Delhi localities such as Vasant Vihar, Munirka, and IIT Delhi, which are not connected with direct metro for either Noida or West Delhi, yet.
