Congress Nagar metro station a boon for railway passengers

Nagpur : The Congress Nagar metro station is a boon for railway passengers boarding or alighting at Ajni station. People can reach Ajni from their homes using the metro and vice versa. Citizens should use the metro to travel to and from Ajni railway station. It is the cheapest and most comfortable mode of transport in the city. Maha Metro strictly adheres to Covid safety guidelines and hence passengers are absolutely safe.

The number of passengers boarding and alighting at Ajni was over 70,000 per month in January and February 2020. Once the railway traffic is normalized Congress Nagar station will be used by thousands of passengers.

National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is constructing an inter-modal station (IMS) at Ajni, which will be linked to Congress Nagar station by a foot overbridge (FOB). Once it is complete, the footfalls in the metro station will increase manifold.

The Congress Nagar station is connected to the platform of Ajni station and hence passengers can walk from here to there without any difficulty. The entrance of the metro station is adjacent to the railway one.

Maha Metro has provided lifts at the metro station so that senior citizens and divyangs can reach the Ajni platform with minimum effort. The ticket counter is near the platform. People can travel in the direction of Sitabuldi or Khapri from this metro station. Those wishing to travel to areas lying on Hingna Road can change trains at Sitabuldi Interchange.
