While there’s a citywide traffic problem in Delhi, there are some places that have it worse than others. One such place is the New Delhi Railway Station, where narrow lanes, hordes of pedestrians, and incessant honking make it nothing less than a madhouse.
In an effort to tackle all that chaos and congestion, there’s a skywalk being built on the Ajmeri Gate side of the railway station. Complete with escalators and staircases, it’ll help decongest the area. Since the airport metro, the Yellow Line, and the DTC bus stand converge there, it’s the preferred entryway for most commuters, who then have to walk through all that traffic to reach the station building. Well, not anymore.
For people driving, there’ll be a new direct entry road from Bhavbhuti Marg (which is currently very narrow), straight to the station. The whole area is getting a makeover with new roads with multiple lanes, LED sign boards, landscaping, fountains and dedicated parking spaces.
The project is headed by Northern Railways and DMRC, and will be complete within the next six months.
