Delhi Metro’s AIIMS Station to Have Special Facilities for Patients

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has announced that its AIIMS station, coming up on the under-construction Central Secretariat-Qutub Minar corridor, had been specially designed to cater to the needs of the thousands of patients who visit the adjoining All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and Safdarjung Hospital everyday. A spokesman for the DMRC said more than 90 percent of the construction work on the station was complete and it was expected to be ready before the scheduled inauguration of the line in June this year. According to him, the station has been strategically constructed right between the two hospitals on the busy Aurobindo Marg so that patients can be conveniently taken to either of them from there. About 60,000 people are expected to use the AIIMS station every day by 2011, which will be the highest for any station on this stretch. The station will have four entrances, two of which will directly link to AIIMS and the other two with Safdarjung Hospital. People visiting these hospitals will not have to cross the Aurobindo Road to reach them.
