New Delhi, Feb 6 (IANS) For commuter convenience and better connectivity to the high-speed Airport Metro Express Line (AMEL), a multi-level car parking is coming up close to Shivaji Stadium Metro station in central Delhi, officials said Monday.

To be operational in a month’s time, the parking facility will be close to Connaught Place and give relief to thousands using the metro.

“The new multi-level parking lot will come up at Shivaji Stadium Airport Metro station, with a parking capacity of 1,400 cars. It will be functional by the end of this month,” said a spokesperson of Reliance Infrastructure, the concessionaire company.

Already, a multi-level car parking is operational at New Delhi Airport Metro station.

“The multi-level parking lot will provide additional commuter convenience and connectivity to the airport Metro. These parking lots can be used by non-commuters who want to park their cars and enjoy the retail experience at these Metro stations,” said the spokesperson.

Currently the AMEL attracts a footfall of 20,000 on an average everyday. The metro authorities expect more ridership with the opening of car parking facilities.

Built at a cost of Rs.5,700 crore, the 23-km Airport Metro Express line has six stations: New Delhi Railway Station, Shivaji Stadium, Dhaula Kuan, Delhi Aero City, Indira Gandhi International Airport and Dwarka Sector 21.
