Delhi Metro to come up with first underground integrated parking facility

New Delhi, India (Metro Rail Today): In a first, the Delhi Metro is building its underground integrated parking facility at the Dhansa Bus Stand Metro station on the Grey Line, which will allow commuters to park their vehicles and move to the concourse area directly.

"The Dhansa Bus Stand Metro station on the Dwarka – Najafgarh – Dhansa Bus Stand corridor will be the first-ever underground Metro station of the Delhi Metro network to have an entire underground floor dedicated for parking of vehicles," the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said in a statement.

Currently, the Hindon River Metro station on the Dilshad Garden – Shaheed Sthal New Bus Adda corridor has a basement parking facility though it is an elevated station. The New Delhi station of the Airport Line has a multilevel parking lot above the station.

"The parking facility will be integrated with the main station area where vehicle users will be able to park their cars and two-wheelers and then proceed to the concourse of the station directly using lifts and escalators", the DMRC has said.

Work on the 1.8-km-long Najafgarh-Dhansa Bus Stand section is now almost complete, and with the completion of this section, this corridor will become 6.1-km-long with four stations, it further added.

"The parking facility will be of great benefit to the local residents as the adjoining areas are extremely congested with very limited space for parking of vehicles. The parking space will have ramps on two sides for entry and exit of vehicles. There will be two entry/exit facilities which will connect the parking lot both with the surface above and the platform below. The Delhi Metro currently operates parking lots in about 100 Metro stations across the network", an official said.

Work on the 1.8 kilometre long Najafgarh – Dhansa Bus Stand section is now almost complete. With the completion of this section, the Dwarka - Dhansa Bus Stand Grey Line corridor will become 6.1 kilometres long with four stations. The project is one of the first of its kind in New Delhi.
