HAZARAT Nizamuddin Station Will Be The Gateway To Metro Stations In Delhi & NCR

HAZARAT  Nizamuddin Metro Rail Station  on  the Ring Road in East Delhi  is being  designed  to provide  metro connectivity  across  Delhi  and NCR . Near the Nizamuddin Railway station and Inter State Bus Transport Station, the Nizamuddin Metro Station has been already developed as one of the major transit hubs of the metro network, as the station is situated on the Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar Pink corridor of Delhi Metro’s Phase-III   on Yuma .It will provide direct connectivity with the Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station as well as the Sarai Kale Khan Inter State Bus Terminus (ISBT).”The station will have dedicated entry/exit points connecting to the Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway station and the ISBT at Sarai Kale Khan. One of the entry/exit points will be within a vicinity of 50 metres from the Sarai Kale Khan ISBT. Another entry/exit will be near the Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway station approximately at a distance of 150 metres,” said Anuj Dayal, Executive Director (Corporate Communication) of DMRC. Currently, the Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway station and Sarai Kale Khan ISBT are not connected with any metro corridor and the nearest metro station that is located are away in distance of three to four KM. The upcoming stations will be installed with broad staircases and escalators for the convenience of commuters. The Indraprasth Park and the upcoming Seven Wonders project once ready will be very near at the walking distance from Hazrat Nizamuddin station. The station will also directly connect the Nizamuddin railway station as well as the Sarai Kale Khan ISBT.”Major challenges were faced during the construction of this station has a high water table and geotechnical conditions (varying from garbage filled top layer to good soil to sandy soil to highly weathered rock to very hard rock within the stretch of just 265 meters). Steps such as controlled blasting were used to break the hard rocks. Due to highly varying geotechnical conditions, half of the station was constructed by bottom-up approach and other half by top-down approach,” said Anuj Dayal. The DMRC’s new station will be installed with greening and beautification around the underground station. Around 30 artworks based on historical heritage of the nearby areas are installed. Thematic impressions and ‘jharokhas’ have also been used to beautify the station.  Hazrat Nizamuddin is the third biggest railway terminus of the national capital after New Delhi and Delhi. Trains such as Rajdhani and other super fast trains start from here.(with inputs from The Pioneer)
