During the G20 Summit in Delhi, there will be changes to the Metro and bus services that may cause problems for commuters. One Metro station called the Supreme Court station will be completely closed, but all the other stations will remain open. However, at some stations, you might not be able to enter or exit for 10-15 minutes because of security rules. The police wanted to close more than 20 Metro station gates for security reasons, including Khan Market, Moti Bagh, and ITO stations, from September 8 to September 10.
For example, at Khan Market station, gates 1, 2, and 3 will be closed, and only gate number 4 will be open. At Kailash Colony station, gate number 2 will be closed, and at Lajpat Nagar station, all gates except gate number 5 will be closed. Janpath station is considered sensitive, so only gate number 2 will be open. All gates at Bhikaji Cama Place station will be closed.
However, there won’t be any restrictions on entry and exit at stations like Aero City, Dhaula Kuan, South Campus, Dwarka Sec-21, Panchsheel Park, Chirag Delhi, Greater Kailash, Nehru Enclave, Kalkaji Mandir, Rajiv Chowk, Chawri Bazar, and Chandni Chowk.
There will also be changes to bus routes. ISBT buses won’t be allowed to enter from the Gurugram side and will be diverted from IFFCO chowk to MG road and then through Mehrauli. The controlled zone won’t have city bus services. These changes will start from 5 AM on September 8.
