Delhi Metro Station to Feature Three Interchanges with Green Line Expansion

The New Delhi Metro station is set to become a triple interchange facility with the expansion of the Green Line from Inderlok to Indraprastha, officials announced on Sunday. This 12.37 km extension will build upon the existing Brigadier Hoshiar Singh - Inderlok Green Line corridor, which spans 28.78 km.

The New Delhi station will serve as an interchange for three lines: Yellow, Orange (Airport Line), and now the Green Line. This development will significantly enhance connectivity across the city, allowing commuters from Bahadurgarh and parts of west Delhi, including Nangloi, Rajdhani Park, and Udyog Nagar, to travel directly to the New Delhi railway station, which is adjacent to the New Delhi Metro station.

Officials highlighted that this expansion will improve access to the New Delhi station and help reduce congestion, as more people are expected to prefer metro travel over road transport. The new Green Line extension will be underground, similar to the existing New Delhi station.

Currently, Kashmere Gate is the only triple interchange station in the Delhi Metro network, connecting the Yellow, Red, and Violet lines. With Phase 4 of the metro expansion, three more stations—Lajpat Nagar, Azadpur, and New Delhi—will also become triple interchange facilities.

As part of Delhi Metro's Phase 4 expansion, approximately 86 kilometers of new lines are being constructed. Construction is underway on three lines: Janakpuri West - RK Ashram Marg (Violet), Majlis Park - Maujpur (Pink), and Aerocity - Tughlakabad (Golden), with over 50 percent of civil work completed on these sections.

Earlier this year, two additional corridors—Inderlok - Indraprastha and Saket G Block - Lajpat Nagar—received approval. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is currently processing statutory clearances, including land acquisition from DDA, CPWD, and PWD, as well as forest clearances.

Further steps, including planning and tendering for civil works, are being undertaken before proceeding with specialized contracts for track laying, electrical systems, signaling, and other technical components, officials added.
