The deepest station and the steepest escalator, just a few of additions the upcoming Janakpuri West-Kalkaji Mandir stretch of the Magenta Line brings to the Delhi Metro network. This section is set to be inaugurated by Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday and will be thrown open for public the next day.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) estimates that commuters will now be able to travel from Noida to Gurugram in just 50 minutes, against the one-and-a-half hours earlier. Instead of changing lines from the busy Rajiv Chowk metro station, commuters will now be able to use the Magenta Line and interchange for the
Yellow Line (Samaypur Badli-Huda City Centre) from Hauz Khas. (Vipin Kumar / HT Photo)
The new section of the Hauz Khas station with a depth of 29 meters will also become the deepest station on the Delhi Metro network. A ramp will connect it with the operational station on the Yellow Line. Once this section opens, the expanse of entire Delhi Metro network will increase to 277 km with 202 Metro stations. (Vipin Kumar / HT Photo)
Apart from Hauz Khas, Janakpuri West also has unique features to boast of. A station escalator with the highest escalation point of 15.65 m makes it the steepest one in the country. “The horizontal length of the escalators is 35.32 m and the height is equal to a five-storey building. The weight of each escalator is 26 tonnes,” a DMRC statement said. (Vipin Kumar / HT Photo)
Being branded as the ‘knowledge corridor’, this line connects four of Delhi’s important universities — Jamia Milia Islamia, Amity University, IIT Delhi and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). This comes as a major advantage to students, especially with admissions to undergraduate and graduate courses beginning by the end of the month. (Vipin Kumar / HT Photo)
The soon-to-be-opened Janakpuri West-Kalkaji Mandir section will provide easy access to the domestic terminal of the Indira Gandhi Airport. The Airport Express Link currently provides metro connectivity to the T3 terminal from where all international carriers and some domestic airlines fly. However, there is no metro connectivity for the domestic terminals from which low cost operators fly. (Vipin Kumar / HT Photo)
Overtaking the recently opened Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus-Majlis Park section of the Pink Line in length, the 24.82 km-long stretch between Janakpuri West and Kalkaji Mandir will be the longest one yet. This stretch is a part of the 38.2km Janakpuri West-Botanical Garden corridor. (Anushree Fadnavis / HT Photo)
Of the 16 stations on the upcoming section, 14 are underground, and 1.85 lakh passengers are expected to interchange at Hauz Khas, helping reduce the pressure on Rajiv Chowk. The frequency of trains will be five minutes and fifteen seconds during peak hours but depending on demand, shorter intermediate loops with higher frequency may also be introduced after studying traffic patterns.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
