Upcoming Delhi Metro stations to be a visual treat for commuters

Life-size artworks, glossy walls and a unique ‘honeycomb’ design for ventilation will be featured at stations of Delhi Metro’s upcoming new corridors — Pink Line (Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar) and Magenta Line (Botanical Garden to Janakpuri West).

The stations at these two corridors will have their interiors covered completely in artworks that are a combination of paintings and photographs. These artworks are being reproduced on toughened glass so that walls inside the stations have a glossy effect — a departure from the pale yellow and grey walls of the existing stations that have no visual appeal.

First such artwork was installed at the Bhikaji Cama Place station on the Pink Line this week. Next in line is the Lajpat Nagar station. Officials said each station will get 26 to 37 artworks.

Beside these two, nine more stations on this 59-km-long line will display original works of artists from across the country.

These stations are Shalimar Bagh, Netaji Subhash Place, Naraina, Sarojini Nagar, INA, South Extension, Vinoba Puri, Ashram and Hazrat Nizamuddin. More info
