The state has renamed two Metro stations on the New Garia-airport route that goes through Sector V.
The station that was named Nicco Park earlier will now be called Nalban and the station just before entering New Town from Sector V, opposite Webel and Technopolis building, will now be called Nabadiganta.
The renaming of the Nalban and Nabadiganta stations is in continuation of renaming the nine stations of the New Garia-airport route that was started in January. Officials said that a lot of changes and development have been happening in both Sector V and New Town since the Metro constructions began. “The provisional names were given by the Railways after the nearest landmark or place. But with the development of the townships, these names were not matching the place,” an official said.
