NEW DELHI- The Delhi Metro has made extensive arrangements to cater to the additional crowd on Yellow Line, in view of the partial closure/diversions imposed on the National Highway - 48 near Gurugram. The Delhi Metro has increased the number of train trips from 478 to 637 per day on the Qutub Minar to HUDA City Centre section of Yellow Line, which is an almost 33% increase.  

Two additional trains have been inducted on the Yellow Line to accommodate more number of passengers during peak hours. With this, the total number of trains operated on this line will go up from 57 to 59.

Further, the frequency of trains on Qutub Minar to HUDA City Centre section of Yellow Line has also improved from 3 minutes 27 seconds to 2 minutes 30 seconds during peak hours on Weekdays. The Delhi Metro is observing the flow of passengers and may review train frequency on other lines if required. 

All the trains which earlier terminated at Qutub Minar Metro Station will continue to run up to the HUDA City Centre Metro Station, subsequently resulting in more number of trips from Qutub Minar to HUDA City Centre. This will help in easing the crowd on the section of Yellow Line towards Gurugram. These additional arrangements will continue to be in place till further notice.

In addition, the Delhi Metro also added additional passenger facilities like Automatic Fare Calculation (AFC) Gates (Ticket Vending Machines (12), Ticket Operating Machines (3), Automatic Recharge Card Machines (1), Customer Care Centre (1), Door Frame Metal Detectors (DFMD) (Baggage Scanning Machines (3) at four stations of Yellow Line, i.e., HUDA City Centre, IFFCO Chowk, M G Road and Sikanderpur. 

Recently, an additional gate (No.3) was opened at HUDA City Centre Metro Station. The new gate opening towards FORTIS Hospital, has reduced the walking distance to the nearest frisking point. This entry gate at ground level is connected through a 35 meters passage to the concourse of the station and is also equipped with a lift and 2 escalators.
