PRESS RELEASE

AROUND 4.5 LAKH PASSENGERS TRAVELLED FROM BLUE LINE TO GREEN LINE 2 TILL MARCH END

Kolkata, Date:21.04.2024

             

Since the beginning of the commercial services o­n under the river stretch of Green Line 2 from 15.03.2024, around 4.5 lakh passengers have travelled from different stations of Blue Line to different stations of Green Line 2 till 31.03.2024. Using the interchanging station at Esplanade, passengers from  Kavi Subhash, Kalighat, Dum  Dum and Dakshineswar have now been easily availing Green Line 2 services to reach places like Howrah, Howrah Maidan and Mahakaran.This interconnection of Blue Line and Green Line has saved the time of these passengers and also has been offering smooth and hiccup free services to the passengers coming from the far-flung areas of South and North 24 Parganas,Hooghly etc. Out of these 4.5 lakh passengers, 2.32 lakh passengers have terminated their journey at Esplanade from different stations of Blue Line.

As per the estimated figure, around 21600  passengers have travelled from Dum Dum Metro station to different stations of Green Line 2 and around 20000 passengers have travelled from Rabindra Sadan to places like Howrah Maidan, Howrah and Mahakaran hopping at Esplanade.Around 19,000 passengers have travelled from Kalighat to different stations of Green Line 2 in the said period. Around 12,100 passengers have travelled from Kavi Subhash to different stations of Green Line 2.  Around 9, 600 passengers have travelled from Dakshineswar  to different stations of  this stretch of Green Line.

In order to make this interchange smoother and more flexible, queue managers have been installed at Esplanade Metro station to ensure seamless interchange of passengers in between Old Esplanade station (Blue Line) and New Esplanade station (Green Line 2). These are allowing all passengers to move freely. Strategic installation of these queue managers has also eliminated the possibility of mixing Green Line 2 and Blue Line bound passengers. This along with numerous banners and stickers already put in place have immensely benefited the passengers to find their suitable entry/exit points, escalators as well as trains smoothly. Metro staff and RPF personnel have been working in tandem to ensure free and fast interchange of passengers at Esplanade specially during the peak hours.
