Doing their part in keeping Delhi green and clean, Delhi Metro has transformed eight drab-looking pillars along its elevated Blue Line between Mandi House and Pragati Maidan stations into beautiful green vertical gardens! Nice!
Green Delhi, Clean Delhi | The concept of transforming metro pillars to vertical gardens was first started in Mexico City and this is not only being done to beautify the surroundings, but also to fight pollution.
Called ‘Mexico Gardens’, each square meter of these vertical gardens can generate enough oxygen supply enough for one individual’s year long consumption! WOAH! This is such a brilliant move!
In India, Kochi Metro was the first among the Metro Rail corporations to build a vertical garden, followed by Bangalore and now Delhi. These vertical gardens in Delhi are located at the junction of Sikandra Road, Tilak Marg and Mathura Road.
These pillars used to be covered in dirt mostly and now they’ve got a mesh frame, where plants in small pots are mounted nearby, to give them a classic vertical garden look.
Sounds cool to us, and soon DMRC will be covering a couple more areas with these vertical gardens, so a purified and greener Delhi lies on the horizon!
