New Delhi: The five Metro stations in Gurgaon, likely to open by March, will have parking facilities, officials said on Sunday.

"The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will provide parking facilities at all the five Metro stations in Gurgaon," a senior DMRC official said here.

Of the five, the largest parking space of 6,500 square metres will be at the HUDA City Centre station.

Parking lots will also be available at IFFCO Chowk, M.G. Road, Sikanderpur and Guru Dronacharya Metro stations of the Delhi Metro's under-construction Central Secretariat-Gurgaon corridor.

"At present, 59 of the 83 operational Metro stations have parking lots for the convenience of commuters. The total parking lots in the Delhi Metro will go up to 64 after the Gurgaon section is opened for the public," the official added.

An official also told that while the Gurgaon section of the corridor will be opened to public by March, the remaining section of the corridor will be operational by May.

Trial runs on the seven-km-long elevated Gurgaon section will begin Jan 29.

With the new parking spaces in Gurgaon stations, the total parking space provided by the DMRC will be nearly 170,000 square metres in which approximately 15,000 four-wheelers and 20,000 two-wheelers can be accommodated.

The 12.53-km Central Secretariat-Qutub Minar section of the stretch is underground while the 14.47-km Qutub Minar-Gurgaon section is an elevated section. This metro line connects north and central Delhi to south Delhi and Gurgaon in Haryana.
