"To facilitate the movement of spectators during the Cricket World Cup 2023 matches (day and night) scheduled to be held on 7th, 11th 15th, 25th October and 6th November 2023 at Arun Jaitley Stadium (Ferozeshah Kotla Grounds) in New Delhi, the Delhi Metro has made minor changes in its last train timings on all lines (except Airport Express Line), the DMRC said in a statement.

The old stadium is situated adjacent to the Delhi Gate Metro station on the Violet Line that runs from Kashmere Gate station to Raja Nahar Singh station.

In anticipation of a sudden rush expected at the nearby metro stations after the match gets over, the Delhi Metro will be performing extra train trips (around 24) by extending its last train timings by about 30 minutes, on all lines. This will enable spectators to reach their destinations smoothly by using the Metro, it said.

The DMRC will also deploy additional personnel and Customer Facilitation Agents (CFA) at the Delhi Gate Metro station to cater the extra rush of spectators on the match day. it said.

The last train timings may be subject to further adjustments based on the match requirements, and commuters are advised to plan their journeys accordingly, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said.
