With construction work in full swing, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is confident that the the two new Metro stations — Kaushambi and Vaishali — in Ghaziabad will be ready well before the inauguration on July 9.

Finishing touches are being given to the interior and exterior of the two buildings at Kaushambi and Vaishali stations on the 2.57-km stretch.

The Vaishali station will be one of the largest in the Metro network in the NCR region, encompassing an area of around 15, 790 square metres. DMRC has planned installations of paintings comprising specific themes developed by its architecture department.

The themes of the paintings, developed on data-proof metal-sheets, will be based on peace, harmony, respect and understanding. The stations have been decorated with special artwork.

Apart from the interior, work on the two foot overbridges has already been done. The two foot overbridges have been constructed of metallic structures compared to other FoBs in Delhi made of solid concrete structures.

The two Metro foot overbridges are going to be the first one in the entire Ghaziabad city to cross over to the other side of the Link Road, connecting Anand Vihar to Mohan Nagar in Ghaziabad.
