Good News For Delhi Metro Commuters! Azadpur To Become Second Triple-Interchange Station By 2023

The Delhi Metro Yellow Line and Delhi Metro Pink Line presently converge at the Azadpur station. Reports suggest the 28.9 km long Janakpuri West-RK Ashram Marg corridor, an extension of the Magenta Line, will also have a station at Azadpur in the Delhi Metro phase IV project. This will make Azadpur the only triple interchange station after Kashmiri Gate.

As per plans, the new elevated metro station will be linked to Azadpur’s existing elevated Yellow Line station and Pink Line halt by foot over-bridges.

The DMRC has marked the site for the upcoming metro station and the construction work for the same will begin in due course. 

Azadpur would, however, not be in the same league even after getting a triple interchange facility tag as Kashmere Gate in terms of footfall. This as the Kashmere Gate metro station caters to a daily footfall of around 2.5 lakh currently while Azadpur caters to around 15,000 passengers per day.

Over 30,000 more commuters are expected to be added in phase IV.

The Delhi Metro Phase IV metro station will link Azadpur and its peripheral areas directly with areas including Sadar Bazaar, Derawal Nagar, Pulbangash and Ghanta Ghar besides the areas in West Delhi such as Pitampura, Madhuban Chowk, Peeragarhi, Mangolpuri and Janakpuri, as per the DMRC.
