Yellow Line Photos

27Aug12

New photos from the Yellow Line. These photos are from the northern end of this long line: Jahangirpuri, Azadpur, New Delhi (Railway Station) and a few others. These photos are also on flickr.

Jahangirpuri is the last station on the line (till 2016 anyway, when the line will be extended), and is to the north of the city. While the area is bustling, it is not one of the wealthier parts of the city, and that is reflected in the finish of the station, which leaves a lot to be desired. There is also a lot of rainwater accumulated on the road, which is a common occurrence in the monsoons throughout the city.

Azadpur is another bustling part of the city just south of Jahangirpuri, with a famous fruit vegetable wholesale market. Unfortunately, the station is probably in the worst state of “finish” in the entire system. It looks like this station was designed to be one of the commercial-type stations on the system, with something like a mall on the premises, but for whatever reason this plan has been either scrapped or delayed. As it is once the essential parts of the station were complete, the “mall” part of the station has been left half-built.

The Azadpur station is situated near two large and busy intersections, which is why it has a long foot-over-bridge system to get to various points around the closer of the two intersections.

.

The other intersection near the station has four-layers of transportation one on top of the other (metro on top and three levels of road below), and still there are enormous jams at the site. Another (underground) metro line will join up at Azadpur by 2016, adding a fifth layer to the mess!
