In a major development just with Lok Sabha elections 2024, Delhiites have been gifted with new metro corridors. The central government has given the green light to Phase 4 of the Delhi Metro, specifically the Inderlok to Indraprastha and Lajpat Nagar to Saket G Block corridors. This move is set to benefit millions of residents in densely populated areas.

₹8,399 Crore Investment for New Corridors

According to sources, the construction of these 20-kilometer corridors will enhance direct metro connectivity from West Delhi to New Delhi and several colonies in South Delhi. The project will feature a total of 18 stations and will come at a cost of ₹8,399 crore.

The only corridor yet to be approved is the one extending from Narela-Rithala to Kundli. In total, Phase 4 includes six corridors spanning 112 kilometers.

Three corridors—Majlis Park to Maujpur, Janakpuri West to RK Ashram, and Delhi Aerocity to Tughlakabad—have already received approval, with approximately 44% of construction completed.

A three-kilometer section is expected to commence operations in July. Of the remaining three corridors, the central government has approved two, and the process for the third one by DMRC is underway.

Reduced Distance to Key Railway Stations

Residents have long been demanding the Inderlok to Indraprastha corridor. This extension of the existing Green Line (Bahadurgarh to Inderlok Kirti Nagar) will cover 12 kilometers and feature 10 metro stations.

The new corridor will significantly reduce the distance between West Delhi and key New Delhi locations such as Delhi Gate, New Delhi Railway Station, and LNJP Hospital.
