NEW DELHI: If you feel crushed inside the Metro's crowded stations, here's good news. As part of its makeover for phase-III, the corporation has decided to make new stations not only more attractive but also more spacious, with one-and-a-half times the commuter capacity of existing stations.

Jitendra Tyagi, director (works) of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), said, "The new stations are being designed to accommodate ridership based on projections for the next decade. The elevated stations, especially, will have a new look and many more features than stations in phases I and II."

The Mukundpur to YamunaVihar corridor, for instance, which has been designed with the help of the French company Systra, covers 59km and will have 23 elevated stations. These stations will be far more spacious, with features like a curved platform that will be almost 13m wide in the middle. Existing stations in phase-II are only 6.24m at their widest. "Commuter-friendly features have been given prominence in the design of these stations, so %extra lifts and escalators will be put in. In fact, the platform area will also %have more benches," added Tyagi.

The stations, though, will be more compact. A DMRC official said, "The stations will be built over 140m (length).
This means that land acquisition is much less, as we are building the stations on smaller plots than previously." This will be achieved by placing the ancillary buildings like the pump and generator rooms under the main staircase leading to the station. Public utilities, which at present are usually located at street level, will be placed on the concourse level, so that they are available during operational hours. "What happens now is that sometimes these utilities are found locked. But now, since these will be on the station premises, the availability is assured," added the official.

DMRC also seems to have learnt from its previous experience, as it is planning to locate its control room near the public area on the concourse. "This is for better management as it will allow the staff to monitor the unpaid area as well, to check on crowds and queues," added the official. The presence of automatic ticketing machines as well as a recharge machine in the public area is also a new feature in the% stations.

The most visible change, however, is expected to be in the exterior of the stations. Tyagi said, "A different material will be used on the exteriors. We are looking at using either glass reinforced jaalis or perforated metal panels on the walls. This material cuts down on the heat from outside." Also, the stations will reflect the surroundings. For instance, the walls will have designs that reflect cultural landmarks or the character of Delhi as a green city.

Delhi metro started very late. Before first line was inaugurated in 2002, delhi was the world's largest city without a major rail transit system (population was 14 million in 2002). It is now catching up with the lost time and that's why they are adding more than 100 km of lines every 5 years.

Delhi Metro's ridership has crossed the expected 20 lakh mark six times so far this month and the new age transport system has taken steps to further upgrade its commuter facilitation amenities like installation of additional Automatic Fare Collection Gates.

In the last one month, Delhi Metro has registered a significant increase in its overall ridership. Its average daily ridership has increased from 17.88 lakh in May to 19.02 lakhs in June.

Delhi Metro also registered its highest ever ridership of 20, 94,067 on June 11th, 2012 surpassing the earlier record of 20,83,755 set on August 12, 2011.

In the month of June, Delhi Metro has crossed the 20 lakh mark in ridership a record six times so far, while it had crossed this mark only thrice till May 31, DMRC spokesman Anuj Dayal said.

He said to ensure smoother movement of the commuters, DMRC will install more than 200 new Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) Gates at different Metro stations. In addition, five new lifts have also been installed at some Metro stations.

The new AFC gates are slated to come up at important Metro stations of the network such as Kashmere Gate, NOIDA City Centre, NOIDA Sector 15, Dilshad Garden, Laxmi Nagar etc. These gates will help the commuters to quickly enter and exit from the Metro stations, he said.

The new lifts have been installed at the Patel Nagar, Chawri Bazar, Jasola and Vaishali Metro stations. Two lifts have been installed at Chawri Bazar. An additional Customer Care Centre (CCC) has been constructed complete with a segregated exit block consisting of nine AFC gates. The number of token counters has also been increased from 17 to 20, Dayal said.
