Cool thread. Once there was a big tram network in Howrah too which is twin city of Kolkata. They had to remove it for various reason.

DMRC completes Jangpura-JLN stadium metro tunnel

Gearing up to provide better transport system in the city before the Commonwealth Games, the Delhi Metro today achieved a major milestone with the first tunnel breakthrough at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium, a key venue of the gaming extravaganza.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) completed the 586-metre-long tunnel between Jangpura and the JLN stadium in a period of over three months using state-of-the-art tunnel boring machine (TBM).

The JLN stadium metro station falls under the nearly 20-km long Central Secretariat-Badarpur corridor, which will have 16 stations.

The corridor, which would have both under-ground and elevated lines, is scheduled to be completed by September 2010, DMRC spokesperson Anuj Dayal said here.

The giant TBM was lowered in Jangpura shaft on September nine last year and started tunnelling around 15-16 metre below the surface from October 13.

The DMRC has also deployed TBMs at the Udyog Bhawan-Khan Market stretch of the same route. Tunnelling in the area is expected to be completed by August this year.

A total of 14 TBMs are being deployed to complete the 30-km of underground section of the second phase of the Delhi Metro.

"It is for the first time in any Indian city and perhaps for any Asian city that so many TBMs will be used simultaneously," Dayal noted.

Metro takes a plunge on way to IGI

NEW DELHI: After constructing the Second Deepest Metro station in the world at Chawri Bazaar, a good 25 metres below the surface, Delhi Metro is bracing up to perform yet another engineering marvel. The tunnel for the Airport Express Line is going under the existing Rajeev Chowk metro station at a depth of 40 metres. The lowest point of Delhi Metro so far, constructing the tunnel is going to be a huge challenge for Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

Like Chawri Bazaar, the new tunnel will also be constructed using a Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) and will be equivalent to about 12 stories under the road level. The tracks for the high-speed link will come up under the existing station area as well as tracks for existing Line 3 (Dwarka to Indraprastha) and Line 2 (Central Secretariat to Vishwavidyalaya).

"The tunnel had to be constructed at such a depth because we had to go under the foundation of the existing Metro station. At such low levels, the underground water pressure is very strong and can even blow up an entire station. A good foundation is created with deep tension piles to secure it. One needed to ensure that the tunnel doesn't disturb this,'' said a DMRC spokesperson.

The process will be monitored round the clock and several sophisticated guages and gadgetry is being installed on the tracks of the two existing Metro Lines, the Rajeev Chowk station, and buildings in CP to ensure that there is no settlement. Even the TBM being used to drill at such a depth is differently designed to be able to withstand the high underground pressures. The TBMs have got retractable cutter heads which automatically change for rock and soil cutting. The tunnel will maintain a depth of 40 metres for a stretch of about 250 metres and the construction will take about a month.

The tunnel also passes directly under several heritage structures including Minto Bridge, Gol Dak Khana and old buildings of Connaught Place, which has posed another challenge before engineers. As the TBM cuts through soil and rock under the surface, the corporation needs to ensure that the vibrations don't cause any cracks or disfigurement in the heritage structures.

For this, each of these buildings will also be fitted with gauges and crack meters. The tunnelling process has already been completed successfully under Minto bridge on January 12 this year without any impact on the structure, which is about 100 years old. DMRC had to obtain a clearance from the Commissioner of Railway Safety before initiating the tunnelling process under it. The tunnel here is at a depth of about 25 metres.

The tunnelling process for the stretch has already started and two TBMs have been lowered from shafts created near New Delhi station. The first tunnel is ready uptil the Minto Road-Connaught Circus intersection. Over the next month, it will drill below the heritage structures of Connaught Place and reach the deepest point by March. "The entire tunnelling process will be complete by August this year,'' the spokesperson added.

Modelled on the lines of London's popular Heathrow Express, the Airport Express Line will start at New Delhi Railway Station and go to Dwarka via IGI airport. On the way, there will be stops at Shivaji Terminus, Dhaula Kuan and National Highway-8. The new service will be operational by July 2010 and promises a superfast ride from CP to IGI, in just 18 minutes. The trains will be different from the existing Delhi Metro ones, with five star facilities. The fare has been fixed at a maximum of Rs 150 till IGI and an additional Rs 30 to Dwarka, with a provision for monthly passes for airline staff and frequent fliers. This is the first Delhi Metro line to come up on a PPP model.

>> this is not correct!!
metro stations in Russian cities haves mostly all an average deep of around 30-40 m or more! also so in some other cities. it is far from to be one of the deepest 50 or 100 of the world!

You are correct , Moscow's metro stations go as deep as 35 mt on an average and a 90 mt station too.

Deepest in Kyiv is 102m (330ft)...

Deepest in Moscow is 86m (280ft).

Even London's deepest is 58m (192ft).

Basically, 25m is nowhere near the deepest station in the world.

I think it is coming 25 Mtrs below the Rajeev Chowk metro station at a depth of 40 metres. so, 40 + 25 = 65 mtrs.

BTW I am also confused about the "Second Deepest"

NEW DELHI: The 6.36 km-long Delhi Metro extension from Vishwavidyalaya to Jehangirpuri, via Model Town, was flagged off by chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday. The line will be opened for commuters from 6 am on Wednesday, a good nine months before the scheduled opening date.

This is the second line of Phase II to be commissioned in the city. And the good news is that three more Metro lines will become operational by the end of this year. Said Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) managing director E Sreedharan: "About 40 more kms of Delhi Metro will be opened for use in the current year. The 18-km Inderlok-Mundka section will start in September, followed by Indraprastha-Noida (14 kms) in October and Yamuna Bank-Anand Vihar section (7 kms) in December.'' Phase II of Delhi Metro construction is comprised of six lines.

The newly-opened section has brought north Delhi areas like Model Town, Gujranwala Town, Azadpur, Maurice Nagar, Mukherjee Nagar, Derawal Nagar, Malka Ganj, Adarsh Nagar and Jehangirpuri closer to the heart of the city as the travel time to these areas will considerably get reduced. The ride from Model Town to CP will take just 22 minutes. It is estimated to ferry over over 1.51 lakh commuters by 2011.

The new line has added five more stations to the existing Line 2 from Central Secretariat to Jehangirpuri and increased its length to 17.36 km with a total 15 stations. Adarsh Nagar Metro station is expected to see the maximum commuter load with 37,684 entries/exits daily.

The elevated stations of the sections located at Model Town, Adarsh Nagar, Azadpur and Jehangirpuri sport a different design too. The stations have been constructed on the main road and appear to be "hanging'' from the sides of the Metro bridge.

Dikshit urged DMRC to extend the new line to Badli, for which a study has already been carried out. This 3.42 km extension will have two stations.

The CM also lauded DMRC for completing the project before time. "Not only is DMRC doing its work well, but they are also finishing projects before deadlines. Other agencies should take inspiration from this and learn the work culture of Delhi Metro to deliver better,'' said Dikshit.

New Delhi, Feb 3 (IANS) The Vishwavidyalaya-Jahangirpuri corridor of the Delhi Metro Tuesday was flagged off by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit here. The line will be open to public Feb 4, an official said.

The 6.3-km long stretch in north Delhi having six stations - namely Vishwavidyalaya, GTB Nagar, Model Town, Azadpur, Adarsh Nagar and Jahangirpuri - opened to public nine months before its target date of Oct 2009.

For having completed the project before target, Dikshit congratulated the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. Later, she rode on the first train of the line and got off at the Jahangirpuri station.

‘The line is expected to greatly benefit commuters of northwest Delhi, coming from areas like Maurice Nagar, Kingsway Camp, Derawal Nagar, Gujrewalan, Malkaganj, Ashok Vihar and Narela, who earlier had to take buses to commute,’ the DMRC official said.

‘The total operating Metro network with the opening of this section will become about 74.5 km with 67 stations,’ he added.

The line is an extension of the Central Secretariat-Vishwavidyalaya line. Train services on the corridor from Central Secretariat to Vishwavidyalaya will be available with a frequency of 3 minutes 40 seconds from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. while train services from Vishwavidyalaya to Jahangirpuri will be available with a frequency of 7 minutes 20 seconds, the official said.

With the commissioning of the new line, the stretch is now 17.36 km from Central Secretariat to Jahangirpuri and has 15 stations.

I really don't want to take away from the Delhi metro, because I think it is a really incredible building program, but the directors name is Sheila DIKSHIT. LOLOL

which station in Kyiv should be 102 m deep ??

the comment to add the 2 diffrent deepth 40m and 25 = 65 m is the way to iniciate mistakes which are then going around the world!
the unknowledge of an Indian newspaper writer should not go around the world in speculations...

Deepest Metro Station

There should be also metioned
- Saint Petersburg (Leningrad), Station Admiralteyskaya: 105 m
- Pjöngjang: Station only 100 m, but some parts of the network at 150 m
