This is for the first time that such a special halt platform is being planned to connect two already operational Metro corridors. This halt platform will provide interconnectivity between the Green and the Pink Line at the Punjabi Bagh West Metro station of Pink Line. There will not be any ticketing facility on the interchange platforms but boarding and de-boarding facilities will be available as a result of which passengers desirous of interchanging trains between Line 5 and Line 7 will be able to use the facility. The platforms will be connected by a 230-metres long Foot Over Bridge (FOB), which will connect the platforms with the Punjabi Bagh West Metro station of Pink Line. 

The platforms will be 155 metres in length and shall be connected with the FOB by two extra-large lifts (each platform) with a capacity of 26 passengers each and staircases. The total height from the platform level of the new platforms to the concourse of the Punjabi Bagh West station of Pink Line is 16.75 metres. Therefore, the passage has been planned at two levels. The passengers after coming down from the staircases or lifts from the platform will again have to take stairs, two escalators or a through movement lift to finally reach the concourse area.

At present, there is no interconnectivity between the two corridors. This facility will be of great benefit to passengers travelling to and from the satellite city of Bahadurgarh and other outer Delhi areas such as Mundka, Nangloi etc.
