Soon metro commuters of Line 1 (Dilshad Garden-Rithala), Line 3 (Dwarka Sector 21-Noida City Centre) and Line 5 (Inderlok - Mundka) will save time and money at least by 50%.

The much-awaited 3.3km stretch connecting Kirti Nagar to Ashok Park is now ready to open. The DMRC will obtains safety clearance from Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) shortly, after which the line will be thrown open.

Thousands of commuters will save travel cost and time as now the commuters of Line 3 will be easily able to travel to a destination on Line 1 and 5 without going to Rajiv Chowk and Kashmere Gate or vice versa.

This stretch will also help a lot in decongesting the busy Rajiv Chowk and Kashmere Gate interchange stations.

Delhi Metro chief E Sreedharan inspected the line on Friday and expressed satisfaction over the completion of work on the stretch.
