Connectivity in Dwarka under focus keeping women safety in mind

Updated: Mar 4

For better Connectivity in Dwarka , easy commuting, and safe environment for women in Dwarka, an inter-disciplinary sub-group has recommended several measures to prepare a strategic plan as well as to develop a complete ecosystem. 

Formed following the directions of Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal, the sub-group was headed by Principle Commissioner (Land Disposal) of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA). The panel has suggested introducing rail connectivity --high-quality electric multiple unit (EMU) — on the existing railway line, which will connect Dwarka with Bijwasan and further to Old Delhi and Ghaziabad.

Women safety in metro

To support the IT industries, some options like co-working spaces in TOD schemes, service apartments, rental housing, entertainment facilities were suggested. It has also been decided to take up sectoral planning exercise for creating walkable neighbourhoods that connect to metro and markets. “The goal is to deliver a pleasing urban experience which is high quality and safe (especially for women) and to deliver high return on investment. The main issues of Dwarka sub-city such as making Dwarka an investment destination, fragmented projects, women safety, and congested entry or exit points were discussed,” said the official. 

Suggestions for better mobility

  •  EMU service on the existing railway line

  •  Bus Rapid Transits for reducing congestion on roads

  •  A new Metro link to minimise interchange for passengers

  •  Increasing frequency of metro train service on Airport Line
