While the dates of the final inspection by the Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) are awaited, here’s a look at some of the stations on the 12.64 km Botanical Garden – Kalkaji Mandir section of Delhi Metro’s new 38.23 km Magenta Line in the 162.5 km Phase 3 project.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation completed signalling tests in early October and received most of the statutory clearances, but hasn’t yet announced which dates it has proposed to the CMRS, whether those have been rejected or accepted, or what they’ve done to expedite the process in making the line operational. There’s been complete silence since their last press release.
Anyhow, this first section of the line includes 9 stations at Kalkaji Mandir, Okhla NSIC, Sukhdev Vihar, Jamia Milia Islamia, Okhla Vihar, Jasola Vihar Shaheen Bagh, Kalindi Kunj, Okhla Bird Sanctuary and Botanical Garden. While Kalkaji Mandir is underground, all other stations are elevated –
