Delhi-Metro Pink Line extension: The Delhi Metro Pink Line, which is the longest individual line of the Delhi Metro network, will boast of Delhi Metro’s first double-decker viaduct on its upcoming Majlis Park-Maujpur corridor. Presently, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) operates the Delhi Metro Pink Line from Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar, with all of its stations being opened for commuters in the year 2018. The extension of Majlis Park to Maujpur has been planned for operations in the next two-three years, where the double-decker viaduct will be constructed. A DMRC spokesperson told Financial Express Online that some of the important features about the double-decker viaduct which will be constructed on Delhi Metro Pink Line are as follows:
