DMRC Initiates Construction of Phase-IV's Longest Tunnel for Enhanced Connectivity

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC)
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has embarked on a significant milestone for its Phase-IV expansion project by commencing the construction of the longest tunnel to be built. This tunnel, spanning an impressive length of 2.67km, will establish a crucial connection between Air Force Station Tughlaqabad and Maa Anandmayee Marg station on the Silver Line. With an internal diameter of 5,800mm, this remarkable engineering feat aims to enhance connectivity and improve the transportation infrastructure of the city.

At the heart of this endeavor lies the deployment of a cutting-edge tunnel boring machine (TBM) named 'AMRIT.' Designed to bore through diverse soil and rock formations, TBMs revolutionize tunnel construction with their ability to excavate a circular cross-section. The chosen TBM for this project boasts an impressive length of 103.9 meters, showcasing its capability to tackle various materials, ranging from hard rock to sand.

Underway on the Aerocity-Tughlaqabad corridor, two additional tunnelling drives are already in progress. These drives, connecting Chhatarpur to Kishangarh, span a combined length of 1.27km. Such efforts signify the DMRC's commitment to expanding and enhancing connectivity across the city.

As part of the ambitious Phase IV expansion, the DMRC is diligently constructing approximately 28km of new underground corridors along three distinct routes. This extensive development contributes to a remarkable total of 65km of new lines being laid, reaffirming the DMRC's dedication to bolstering Delhi's transportation network.

The initiation of construction on the longest tunnel in Phase-IV marks a significant milestone in the DMRC's journey to provide efficient and convenient transportation options to the residents of Delhi. With the tireless efforts of dedicated professionals, including DMRC MD Vikas Kumar and other esteemed officials, this project will serve as a testament to the city's commitment to progress and innovation.

By expanding the metro network and constructing advanced tunnels, the DMRC is poised to meet the ever-growing demands of Delhi's population, ensuring smoother and faster transportation for years to come. This ambitious undertaking will not only enhance connectivity but also contribute to the overall development and prosperity of the city.
