Two more stations will come up near the domestic airport  on Delhi Metro's proposed Janakpuri West–Kalindi Kunj corridor to cater to the requirements of the people in the area.

While one station will come up at Sadar Bazar near Palam, the other one will come up at Shankar Vihar between the Domestic Airport and Vasant Vihar, a DMRC spokesman said.

With the new addition, the number of stations on the 37-km corridor will be 14. The corridor is part of the Delhi Metro's Phase-III.

The main reason for the inclusion of these stations is that, the distance between the already planned Palam and Domestic Airport Metro stations and then from the Domestic Airport Metro station till the Vasant Vihar Metro station was approximately four kilometres each.

Additional stations in between will be able to cater to the requirements of the local people in a better way, the spokesman said.

The proposed Sadar Bazar station will be located near the Indian Oil depot on the left of the road, while the Shankar Vihar station will come up in the defence area by the side of National Highway 8.

Tenders have also been floated for the civil construction of Bridge Across River Yamuna at Kalindi Kunj.
