To improve transport infrastructure in the city, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation will soon implement Multi-Modal Integration (MMI) System near 90 different metro stations of Delhi. These systems will be developed near 90 metro stations that are constructed under Delhi Metro Phase-1, 2 and 3.
Under this, the DMRC will establish various transportation systems like feeder buses, bus stands, and autorickshaws that will improve the last-mile connectivity to various areas of the city. It will also include different approach roads, pedestrian walkways, and parking areas so that the daily commuters can easily park their vehicles on these metro stations.
Giving more details on the above plan, a DMRC official said, “The authority has already made a plan to Implement Multi-Modal Integration in the city. Under this, the connectivity of around 90 metro stations will be improved. This includes 28 stations of Phase1 and 2 and 61 stations of phase 3.”
He further said that the detailed design prepared by the DMRC will elevate the connectivity quotient around these stations. This will also provide relief to the commuters from heavy congestion and traffic.
All these areas near metro stations fall under the ambit of different municipal authorities. So, for the smooth implementation of the project, the Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning and Engineering) Centre (UTTIPEC) has requested DMRC to send the detailed plans and designs for the MMI project to the respective civic bodies.
The major metro stations which are included under this project include Tees Hazari, Hauz Khas, Laxmi Nagar, and Rajendra Place of Delhi Metro Phase 1 and 2.
