Chaos outside Delhi Metro stations might soon become a thing of the past. Now, traffic police who would be posted outside the city’s busiest Metro stations will help you catch that rickshaw or autorickshaw for your onward journey.

To deal with the growing problem of congestion outside Metro stations, created by autorickshaws, rickshaws, cars and buses that throng the station’s entry/exit points to pick up or drop commuters, Delhi traffic police have decided to deploy its personnel outside select stations that see high footfalls. They will be tasked with regulating traffic to facilitate the movement of commuters.

“We have selected 45 such stations including 12 in south Delhi,” said a senior traffic police officer, adding that a deployment plan is being prepared.

The plan is to improve traffic flow near Metro stations and also ensure last mile-connectivity.

“Pedestrian safety near Metro stations would be our priority as pedestrians are highly vulnerable near them,” the officer said.

Delhi traffic police recently held a meeting with the officers of security cell and operations cell to discuss the proposal, said Anuj Dayal, the chief spokesperson of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.

Some of the stations where deployment would be made include Rajiv Chowk, Kashmere Gate, Vishwavidyalaya, Central Secretariat, Yamuna Bank and Anand Vihar, among others.
