The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) today said two more stations would come up on the proposed Janakpuri West – Kalindi Kunj corridor in Phase III of the project.

A DMRC press release said that one station would come up at Sadar Bazar near Palam, the other would come up at Shankar Vihar between the domestic airport and Vasant Vihar.

The main reason for the inclusion of these stations is that the distance between the already planned Palam and domestic airport stations and then from the domestic airport till Vasant Vihar was approximately four kilometres each. Additional stations in between will be able to cater to the requirements of the local people in a better way, the release said.

The station at Sadar Bazar will be located near the Indian Oil depot on the left of the road, while the Shankar Vihar station will come up in the defence area by the side of National Highway 8. Both will be elevated stations.

The other stations of this 33.494 km long corridor are: Janakpuri West, Janakpuri C-2B, Dabri Mor, Dhasrath Puri, Palam, IG Domestic Airport, Vasant Vihar, Munirka, R.K Puram, IIT, Hauz Khas, Panchsheel Park, Chirag Delhi, G.K Enclave, Nehru Place, Kalkaji, Okhla Ph 3, Ishwar Nagar, Jamia Nagar, Okhla Vihar, Jasola Vihar and Kalindi Kunj.

Amity NOIDA and Botanical Garden will be the additional stations on the proposed Kalindi Kunj – Botanical Garden extension, the release added.
