DMRC’s Phase-IV worth Rs. 50k-cr on anvil

DMRC Phase 4
In order to build top class metro network in and around the national capital, the state government in Delhi has recently approved the fourth phase of the Delhi Metro extending the city's transportation lifeline to outer parts of the Capital and bolster connectivity to the IGI airport, said an official spokesperson, adding that the construction on the fourth phase comprising six lines will start in 2017 and is scheduled to be commissioned in the next three years. The 104-km network will cost Rs. 55,000-cr and is expected to carry 1.5 million passengers daily.

Under this phase, six lines like Inderlok - Indraprastha, Tughlakabad - Terminal 1, Lajpat Nagar - Saket G-Block, Janakpuri (west) - RK Ashram and Mukundpur-Maujpur have been proposed. These lines are in addition to the 140-km of metro network added in Phase III to de-congest traffic in congested areas of central and south parts of the city.

The sources added that the DMRC originally proposed to build a 20km-long corridor between the existing Aerocity and Tughlakabad metro stations but have now extended it to Terminal 1 station of the airport by crisscrossing via densely populated areas such as Sangam Vihar, Saket, Mehrauli, Vasant Kunj and Mahipalpur of south Delhi. Metro users travelling on the Violet ITO-Faridabad line will have the option to take the Metro for this corridor from Tughlakabad while passengers on the Yellow Gurgaon line can take the Metro from Saket. Currently the airport line is connected only with Gurgaon-Jahangirpuri line at New Delhi railway station. Once this line, which is part of phase IV of DMRC, is completed, passengers will have different options of going to airport. From Aerocity, they can take the airport line to go to Terminal 3. After the mandatory approval, the project will be forwarded to the Union government and after the formal approval the tendering process will start as quickly as possible, he added.
