Delhi now has a walkway that will allow people to move between New Delhi Railway Station and the metro station. The brand new walkway is 242 meters long and is located on the Ajmeri Gate side of the station.
According to a Delhi Metro Rail Corporation spokesperson, “The dedicated footbridge, built by DMRC in conjunction with Northern Railway, to provide seamless connectivity between the Ajmeri Gate side and adjacent New Delhi Metro stations on the Yellow Line and the airport express line.”
The brand new Skywalk is a foot over bridge connecting the Ajmeri Gate side of the station with the nearby metro station. It was built to ease traffic flow and is a convenient means of transport for those wishing to take the metro to their homes, hotels and other destinations.
Additionally, the Skywalk is also going to connect with the multi-level car park through the Bhavbhuti Marg. It was built with escalators and other facilities such as CCTV surveillance cameras.
The Delhi Metro currently connects a large number of locations across the city, as well as neighboring Noida and Gurgaon. It is the easiest mode of transport in Delhi NCR and is a preferred means of transport for many people arriving at the railway station.
According to a DMRC statement, “The structure was to be built above a functional underground metro station just three meters below, with heavy traffic on Bhavbhuti Marg. Additionally, the bridge was to be connected to two structures of pre-existing construction at far ends ensuring minimum inconvenience to people, infrastructure and other nearby buildings.
