A new entry point to Central Metro station has been opened on Wednesday. CMRL opened this new entrance near Moore market complex. A subway that was closed during metro construction has been renovated and reopened and is linked to the new entrance. Both the subway and the new entrance are equipped with escalators.
This will be one of the 6 entry points planned for central metro station. The rest of the metro stations in the city has 4 entry points. CMRL has announced the opening of yet another entrance to central metro station in coming months.
With the opening of the new entrance, passengers from Park railway station can use the subway and enter the Central Metro station without having to come to the road level or heading to the Moore Market Complex.
While the public find this entrance helpful, they are also of the opinion that more signages and staff to guide commuters will come handy.
“We are in the process of installing the lift and it will be finished soon,” The Hindu reported an official as saying. At present, nearly 3,000 people use the Central Metro station.
