Despite use of cutting-edge technologies in construction, mammoth projects are still dependent on labour involvement and their shortage does have an impact on the pace of work.

For the construction projects to sustain during a crisis like the current pandemic, all stakeholders need to be consulted and taken care of.
The lockdown did have an impact on the construction activities of DMRC. However, during this period, DMRC has been in touch with the contractors and ensured timely payments to them. The labourers who stayed back during the lockdown were also taken care of. Once the government granted permission for construction activities, the work resumed at all our sites. Despite the heavy shortage of labourers, we managed to achieve important milestones in Phase – IV project, such as casting the first pier on one of the three approved corridors and starting the construction of an underground section.

Before starting work and while preparing contract conditions it is now necessary to follow the safety and health manuals and incorporate the latest technologies.
DMRC has always used cutting-edge technologies in construction. However, mammoth construction projects are still dependent on labour involvement and their shortage does have an impact on the pace of work. Before starting work on every phase of DMRC’s projects, and while preparing contract conditions as well as safety and health manuals, it is ensured that the latest technologies are incorporated into the contract conditions. The same has been done for the ongoing Phase–IV project of Delhi Metro. Even during the current situation, we are in touch with our contractors and are looking at new, innovative ways which can help expedite the progress of work.
