New Delhi: To help passengers identify the
platform from which they have to board trains, the Delhi Metro
will now install a special kind of directional signages at all
Metro station junctions in the national capital.
DMRC spokesperson Anuj Dayal said the signages will be
installed on the floor near AFC gates so that the commuters,
while entering into the paid area of the station, can easily
understand which side of the station they need to go to board
the right train.

The signages, both in Hindi and English, will guide the
passengers for a hassle-free movement towards the right
platform/line.

More signages will be installed inside the station area.

At present, such signages are installed at Central
Secretariat Metro station which is an interchange station for
Line-2 (HUDA City Centre to Jahangirpuri) and Line-6 (Central
Secretariat to Badarpur).
Gradually, such signages will be provided at other
interchange stations like Rajiv Chowk, Kashmere Gate, Inderlok
and Yamuna Bank, Dayal said.

Interchange directional signages are quite popular in
Tokyo Metro for its utility and passenger-friendliness and the
Delhi Metro expects that it will help the passengers of the
Delhi Metro a great deal, he said.
