New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is constructing a dedicated subway that will connect the domestic terminals of the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport with Terminal 1-IGI Airport Metro Station of the Magenta Line. The subway will be equipped with escalator, elevators and travelators.
- The 370 metre subway, will be first such subway to have travelators in Delhi.
- “Commuters travelling to and from the terminal will be able to directly enter and exit the Metro Station using the subway,” Anuj Dayal, Executive Director (Corporate Communications), DMRC told TOI.
- The proposed subway will connect with the airport at both arrival and departure terminals.
- It will have entry and exit points at both terminals.
- Around 30% work has already been done, and the rest will be completed in 2-3 months, the report claimed.
- Elevators and escalators are yet to be installed at the subway.
- The DMRC had earlier withheld the subway construction plan for some time due to the expansion of the domestic terminals.
- The DMRC is aiming to finish the project by January 2019, though it will open for public in May 2019.
