NEW DELHI: Anand Vihar of Delhi is ready to become the chief transport hub soon. Anand Vihar will become the busiest interchange station of Delhi Metro network. Here, a metro station of Pink Line has also been added, the Blue Line already halts here. Both the Blue Line and the Pink Line are very close to the ISBT station and the railway station is not far away. Now there will also be a station of Delhi-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System and with this, Anand Vihar will be an important point for travelers.
The new station will be opened at Anand Vihar on the segments of Trilokpuri from Shiv Vihar of Pink Line. The DMRC said, “There will be four lines on the Integrated Platform, two for the Blue Line, which leads to Vaishali and Yamuna Bank and other Majlis Park and Trilokpuri will go.” When the new station opens, the passengers of Gokulpuri, Jafarabad, Maujpur, and Welcome will be able to reach Vaishali and Western Delhi in less time. The Interchange of Anand Vihar Metro Station connects the Indraprastha Extension of East Delhi, Vinod Nagar and Trilokpuri to Blue Line.
Due to the problem of land acquisition, Trilokpuri has a gap of 1.5 kms on the Pink Line, but as soon as the problem is solved, the Atrias of South Delhi and Southwest Delhi will have a special advantage. Opening it, trains can be changed at Anand Vihar Metro Station and Indira Gandhi Airport will be easily accessible.
There will be 3 entry-exit points at the new station at Anand Vihar. The two points will be towards ISBT and towards a railway station. The existing main entry will be closed. DMRC official said, “At present, passengers coming from ISBT have to take a long route to reach the metro station, but the new entry will be in front of the bus terminals and there will be drop points for cars-auto rickshaws.”
