Delhi Metro Begins Installing Platform Screen Doors

After successfully testing a prototype, the Delhi Metro’s contractors last month began installing 288 half height Platform Screen Doors (PSDs) at 6 stations on the Yellow line! These 1.7 meter tall doors will act as a partition between the platforms & track area, and only open & close when a train arrives and departs. These PSDs are being installed to eliminate suicides and prevent accidents that may arise due to heavy passenger movement that is witnessed at the following stations:
  1.        Central Secretariat
  2.        Rajiv Chowk (Connaught Place)
  3.        New Delhi (Railway Station)
  4.        Chawri Bazaar
  5.        Chandni Chowk
  6.        Kashmere Gate
