PM Narendra Modi inaugurated the Eastern Peripheral Expressway and the first phase of the Delhi-Meerut Expressway on Sunday, which will be followed by the Delhi Metro’s Magenta Line being launched by Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Housing and Urban Affairs minister Hardeep S Puri.
The 25.6-kilometre second phase of the Magenta Line will run from Kalkaji temple in South Delhi to Janakpuri in West Delhi. There would be three interchangeable stations — Kalkaji Mandir for Violet Line, Hauz Khas for Yellow Line and Janakpuri West for Blue Line.
Delhi Meerut Highway:
The Expressway runs from Nizamuddin Bridge in East Delhi to the Delhi-UP Border, covering a total length of 8.36km, connecting Noida and Ghaziabad. The Rs 841 crore project halves the Delhi-Meerut travel time and is India's largest control access highway.
Eastern Peripheral Expressway:
The smart and green 135-kilometre expressway starts near Kundli on the Delhi-Haryana border and ends at Haryana’s Palwal district to join Western Expressway, thereby connecting Sonepat, Baghpat, Ghaziabad, Noida and Faridabad.
