PRESS RELEASE

SPECIAL INDICATIVE FOOTPRINTS INSTALLED AT OLD AND NEW ESPLANADE METRO STATIONS

Kolkata, Date: 04.05.2024

Esplanade Metro Station has been the meeting point of Blue Line and Green Line 2 of Kolkata Metro. Daily thousands of passengers use old and new Esplanade stations to switch either from Blue Line to Green Line 2 or vice versa to reach their destinations in and around Kolkata or Howrah. In order to help them to switch smoothly from o­ne Corridor to the other at Esplanade, Metro Railway authorities have installed special indicative footprints in Blue and Green colours at old Esplanade Metro station as well as new Esplanade Metro station. If any commuter after getting down at old Esplanade Metro station follow these Green footprints installed o­n the floor of the concourse area of the station, he/she will be able to seamlessly  go to the new Esplanade Metro station through the inter connecting passage without asking anybody. Similarly any passenger after getting down at the new Esplanade Metro station will be able to switch easily to the old Esplanade Metro station by following the Blue footprints installed o­n the floor of the concourse area of the station. These indicative footprints are easily visible and strategically placed in such a way that commuters, willing to hop Corridors, will be able to follow easily.

Apart from this indicative Green and Blue footprints, banners, posters, stickers are already o­n display at these two stations at Esplanade to guide the commuters to hop from Blue Line to Green Line 2 and vice versa. Metro commuters are visibly happy with this new addition of passenger amenity and they have thanked Metro authorities for this initiative.

It is to be noted that indicative footprints in Blue and Orange colours have already been installed at old and new Kavi Subhash Metro stations to guide the commuters to change from Blue Line to Orange Line and vice versa.
