There will be two stations of Kalindi Kunj Botanical Garden line at Delhi namely – Kalindi Kunj and Okhla Bird Sanctuary.
This line will be a part of the under construction Janakpuri West- Kalindi Kunj corridor (33 km), which has stations being build up at Janakpuri, Jamia Milia Islamia University, Kalkaji, Nehru Place, Okhla, IIT, Munirka, RK Puram, Vasant Vihar, Palam and IG domestic terminal, among others.
The Botanical Garden station will be NCR's first interchange station, linking commuters to the currently operational Blue Line ( Noida City Centre to Dwarka Sector 21) and the Janakpuri West- Botanical Garden corridor. This station is projected to get an interchange load of 97,780 passengers in 2016 which currently sees 14,000 commuters daily.
The fourth bridge, measuring 574 metre, across the Yamuna river is already being constructed by DMRC for the line to Botanical Garden.
DMRC MD Mangu Singh said, ''We have no restrictions on working outside Delhi. There is a need to take the Metro deeper into NCR towns like Noida or Ghaziabad to provide better public transport facility.''
