Traffic piling from the construction of Pink Line metro in South Extension, New Delhi slows down the daily travellers. Construction of Pink Line by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) connecting INA to South Extension ‘decelerates’ traffic. Large space of road occupied for construction results in congestion. Traffic is mostly affected in peak hours when people leave for office, schools and colleges.
“There is huge traffic every day from 9-11 AM at this place when I go for dropping my daughter to school. Congestion would start at the flyover and will continue till you cross the construction area”, says Prabhat, a daily traveller on this route.
The Pink Line is an under construction line of Delhi Metro, a part of its Phase III network starting from Majlis Park and terminating at Shiv Vihar metro station.
Arman Siddiq, a senior Engineer, told that the work is in its conclusive stage and it is expected to be completed until September 2017. He claimed that addition of this new route will connect almost all major parts of Delhi and will provide ease to the passengers
As per the update available at DMRC’s website, Majlis Park – Lajpat Nagar section is targeted to be completed by September 2017, with 89.66 percent of construction completed.
