The construction of the Janakpuri West-RK Ashram metro corridor, part of Delhi Metro’s Phase-4, is nearing completion. Trial runs for metro trains on this segment are being prepared.

The 2.5-kilometer underground section is expected to be operational by the end of August. This will extend the metro service from Janakpuri West to Krishna Park Extension. Once operational, this route will directly connect Botanical Garden on the Magenta Line to Krishna Park Extension.

Key Developments

  • Krishna Park Extension Station: The construction of Krishna Park Extension station is almost complete. The tunnel for this corridor was finished in November 2022. Currently, work on metro tracks, electrification, and station construction is nearly finished.


  • Magenta Line Extension: This corridor is an extension of the Magenta Line. With necessary approvals from the Metro Railway Safety Commissioner, the metro services are expected to start by August. The corridor’s infrastructure is complete, and metro trials will begin soon. Due to the short length of the corridor, the trials are expected to conclude quickly.


  • Expanded Network: The opening of this corridor will extend the Magenta Line from 37.46 kilometers to approximately 40 kilometers, increasing the number of stations from 25 to 26.


Upcoming Trials and Approvals

According to DMRC, trials on this corridor will commence soon. The commencement of metro operations will follow approval from the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS). The construction work for the entire corridor is progressing rapidly, with 54% of the work completed so far.


Full Corridor Completion by 2026

The construction of the Janakpuri West to RK Ashram corridor is expected to be completed by 2026. This corridor will feature a total of 22 stations, including eight interchange stations: Janakpuri West, Peeragarhi, Pitampura, Haiderpur Badli Mor, Majlis Park, Azadpur, Pulbangash, and RK Ashram Marg. Upon completion, Azadpur will become a triple interchange station, connecting the Yellow and Pink Lines with this new corridor.



Ongoing Construction

Currently, Delhi Metro is constructing three corridors:

  • Janakpuri West to RK Ashram
  • Majlis Park to Maujpur
  • Airport to Tughlakabad (Golden Line)


The 12.3-kilometer Majlis Park to Maujpur corridor is expected to be ready by the end of 2025, while the Airport to Tughlakabad corridor is anticipated to be completed by 2026.
