Delhi Metro Pics and Updates


Official Delhi Metro Website

Phase 3 Introduction:

Delhi Metro currently has 190 km of operational network and is being built in a phase-wise manner with Phase-I ending in 2005-06, Phase-II ending in 2010-11, Phase-III ending in 2015-16, Phase-IV ending in 2020-21, and possibly one or more phases after this.

Phase-I consisted of 65 km of lines
Phase-II consisted of 125 km of lines.
Phase-III is proposed to add 147 km more to the network.

The sections proposed to be built under Phase-III are:

(A) Extension of existing lines

1. Yellow Line extn (Jahangirpuri - Badli) = 4.5 km (within Delhi)

2. Blue Line branch (Dwarka Mor - Najafgarh)= 5 km (within Delhi)

3. Violet Line extn (Central Secretariat - Kashmere Gate) = 9.4 km (within Delhi)

4. Violet Line extn (Badarpur - Faridabad) = 13.9 km (in Faridabad)

5. Airport line extn (Dwarka Sec 21 - HUDA City Centre) = 14 km (4 km in Delhi, rest in Gurgaon)

6. Red Line extn (Dilshad Garden - Mohan Nagar) = 7.5 km (in Ghaziabad)

(B) New lines

1. Ring Road Line / Line 7 (Mukundpur - Yamuna Vihar) = 55.7 km (within Delhi)

2. Outer Ring Road Line / Line 8 (Janakpuri West - Kalindi Kunj - Botanical Garden)= 37.3 km (within Delhi, except 2 stations in Noida)


Apart from these lines, Rapid Metro Rail Gurgaon (5 km) is under construction.

Noida authority has also proposed a metro network of 86 km in Noida and Greater Noida (including the 3.76 km Kalindi Kunj - Botanical Garden section of ORR line).

Delhi Metro Project Background

The first train rolled down the tracks of Line 1 in 2002. In 2006 when the first phase of construction ended, the Delhi metro consisted of 3 lines, 59 stations totaling 65 kms.

The Delhi Metro was expanded at a war footing pace in all directions during Phase II of the project. After construction on Phase II ended in September 2010, it was able to boast of being the fastest metro system constructed in terms of kms/year added.

It took the DMRC 8 years to complete 65 kms of the Phase I works. For Phase II of the project, it doubled that number while halving the time of completion. It added around 125 kms of track in just around 4 years. The 2nd phase included three new lines, an airport express line and extensions of the lines that were built in Phase I. So by the end of 2010, the Delhi metro system consisted of 7 lines, 142 stations and 190 kms of track.

here is a picture of Central Secretriat Subway Entrance.. I think this is one of the very first pictures of new delhi subway entrance found on the net.. I found it Times of India (ePaper), new delhi edition dated 28th June..




and here is the article along with these pictures

Subways, snazzy lifts and parking



In the second part of our series on the underground Kashmiri Gate-Central Secretariat section, we give you a peek into two stations which will be open to the public from July 3. Here’s an exclusive report.


By Nidhi Sharma/TNN



New Delhi: As Metro slips into Central Vista this week, the underground stations are set to dazzle you. Smooth glass escalators with lights, glass door lifts with stainless steel surfaces, parking spaces and subways to make it easier for you to cross busy city roundabouts.
The underground stretch will terminate at Central Secretariat — the key link to south Delhi in the upcoming Phase II of Metro. The station will have five entry points. Located right next to Rail Bhawan, it will have two entries near it — one next to Rail Bhawan and the other across the road.
Other entries will be near Red Cross Road, Raisina Road and Dr Rajendra Prasad Road. Red stone has been used to build facades of entry and exit points. DMRC chief public relations officer Anuj Dayal said: ‘‘The station buildings will be well-lit and will bear the DMRC logo. We will attempt to make the stations look safe and properly lit.'' There will be three glass escalators at this station.
One of the unique features would be the lifts. These snazzy glass lifts will be without machine-rooms, that is, the cables and the heavy duty instrument box usually seen atop lifts, will not be present. The glass will be present on two sides — front and back. DMRC has borrowed the concept from Tokyo and Vienna. Lifts will have vandal-proof or scratch resistant steel side walls.
Right after Central Secretariat is Patel Chowk station, which will offer 1,000 sq m of parking space for cars and two-wheelers. Dayal said: ‘‘This is the only station in the new underground stretch which will offer parking. But this facility will take some time. We will try to expand the capacity later.''
On Metro Line 2, DU is the only other station which has parking space. Dayal said: ‘‘We have been unable to offer parking space in CP, which is the next station. So we decided to provide some space at Patel Chowk. It will also help in decongesting CP.'' Patel Chowk is located close to Sanchar Bhawan. A relatively smaller station than Central Secretariat, Patel Chowk has been designed to handle 29,245 passengers by 2021. It will have two entry and exit points.
Both stations were made using cut-and-cover method of construction. Since Delhi Metro did not face space constraint around this area, large-scale excavation was carried out to build these stations.
The entire area was dug up, station structure built and then surface was restored. However, Delhi Metro used an earth pressure balance machine (EPBM) for tunnelling work between Patel Chowk and Connaught Place stations. The machine was bought from Bangkok Metro. This was done as cut-andcover method would have meant traffic disruptions in and around Connaught Place.
