The country’s first and only Ring Metro will start operating by next year. This will probably be the longest metro route in the country, which will be about 71.5 kilometres. With its construction, reaching Delhi from Bahadurgarh, Rohtak, Faridabad, and some other areas of Haryana will be straightforward. People living here will get much help in reaching Delhi airport and railway station. It will be built around Delhi and connected to almost every central metro line. Its one phase, from Majlis Park to Maujpur, is expected to be completed by 2024.

The work of Ring Metro is being done under Phase-4 of Delhi Metro. Its job is going on with a delay of about 30 months. The reason for the delay is being given to the forest department’s permission to cut trees and land acquisition. A bridge will be built under this metro line, and the road will be operational. That is, this metro line will be a triple-decker.

Eleven interchange metro stations will be built on the Ring Metro Line. Their names are Rajouri Garden, Punjabi Bagh West, Azadpur, Netaji Subhash Palace, Dilli Haat, INA, Lajpatnagar, Mayur Vihar Phase-1, Anand Vihar ISBT, Durgabai Deshmukh Marg, Karkardooma and Welcome station. Fifty-eight per cent work of Ring Metro has been completed. It is expected to be completed by June 2024.

35 stations already exist

A 12.55-kilometer metro track will be built to connect North, South, East and West Delhi. Let us tell you that the Ring Metro is being constructed by combining the already working metro line. After completing the Majlis Park and Maujpur segments, the Pink Line (Majlis Park to Gokulpuri) will become a Ring Metro. There are already 35 stations for Ring Metro.

Project cost increased

Due to the delay in this project, the estimated cost has increased by 15 per cent. Its old budget was Rs 10,479 crore, which has now grown to Rs 12,048 crore. Along with this line, Ring Road will also be ready, benefiting the people of Delhi, Ghaziabad, Noida and Bahadurgarh.
