Delhi Metro commuters will not be able to keep their vehicles at the parking facility in Akshardham station from Monday till the end of the Commonwealth Games next month.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation decided to close the parking lot at the Metro station, which witnesses very high footfall on weekdays, after an advisory issued to it by the Delhi Police.
The parking lot will be closed from Monday till the end of the Games in mid-October.
“This step has been taken by the Delhi Police due to security concerns since the Commonwealth Games Village is very close to the Akshardham Metro station," DMRC spokesman Anuj Dayal said.
However, he said, parking facility will be available at Metro stations adjoining the Akshardham Metro station like Yamuna Bank and Mayur Vihar-I stations.
