New Delhi: Delhi Metro commuters will not be
able to keep their vehicles at the parking facility in
Akshardham station from Monday till the end of the
Commonwealth Games next month.

Delhi Metro decided to close the parking facility at the
Metro station, which witnesses very high footfall on weekdays,
after Delhi Police issued an advisory to it in this regard.

The parking lot will be closed from Monday till the end
of the Games in mid-October.

"This step has been taken by the Delhi Police due to
security concerns since the Commonwealth Games Village is very
close to the Akshardham Metro station," DMRC spokesman Anuj
Dayal said.

However, he said, parking facility will be available at
Metro stations adjoining the Akshardham Metro station like
Yamuna Bank and Mayur Vihar I stations.
