DMRC elevated flyover and metro viaduct
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has planned to construct an integrated flyover-cum-metro viaduct structure along with a vehicle underpass. The structure is being built near Soorghat on the Majlis Park – Maujpur corridor of Phase – IV in north-east Delhi in association with PWD at Soorghat metro station. The 12.098 km long corridor comprises eight stations and is completely elevated. This extension of the Pink Line will complete the ring of the Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar corridor and will be the first-ever ring corridor in the country with a length of about 70 km. This PWD flyover and vehicle underpass are a part of the proposed elevated road along Yamuna river parallel to the Ring Road between the Wazirabad Flyover (Signature Bridge) and Ring Road near DND.

In this engineering marvel, integrated portals will be erected on which a road flyover, as well as a Metro viaduct, will be placed. While on one side of the portal, the Metro viaduct will be placed, a flyover used for vehicular movement will be constructed by the PWD on the other side. On these portals, the road flyover and the Metro viaduct will rest and run parallel to each other for a length of around 450 m. As many as 21 portals with an average width of 26 metres and height of 10 meters will be erected and a vehicle underpass shall also be constructed below these portals which will cater to the movement of vehicles coming from Outer Ring Road. While the width of the Metro viaduct will be 10.5 metres, the road flyover moving adjacent and parallel to it will be 3-lane road of approx. 10 metres width. Delhi Metro will construct the portals and the Metro viaduct over it and PWD will erect the superstructure for flyover on the already constructed portals.
