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.

Whats strange about the metro that it uses overhead wires instead of 3rd rail like most metro uses, I guess it's a cross between a heavy rail and a light rail or something like that. It looks kinda unusual.

Well, India could produce overhead wiring with 25 KV power on their own
so they opt to that kind of power transmission for Delhi Metro.

New Delhi Metro station, your connect with National rail
29 June 2005
The Times of India

In this part of our series, we introduce the Metro station which provides an interchange with New Delhi Railway station. The Metro tracks run right under the Northern Railway lines. Special tunnelling methods were required and DMRC also had to monitor any signs of subsidence in the ground-level track system.

NEW DELHI: Now, when you get off a train at New Delhi railway station, you wouldn't have to haggle with taxi or auto drivers for the right fare. Starting this Sunday, you will reach your destination in the cool comfort of the Metro.

Delhi Metro's New Delhi station has been integrated with the railway station for passengers. A subway from the Metro station can take you to platform number 12 of the railway station. The subway opens close to the ticket counters of the station. Most of the long-distance trains, including Rajdhani and south-bound expresses, arrive and depart from this platform.

So, as you take the tube to the station, you can take a subway and emerge at Ajmeri Gate side and just walk onto the platform. There are four entrances to the station. Of these, three will be opened to public this Sunday. The Metro station has two levels. As you enter the station, you take the stairs down to the concourse level. The ticket windows and customer care centres will be located here. You will buy the tokens here and enter the paid area through the automatic fare collection (AFC) gates. Then you will take another flight of stairs down to the platform level.

To begin with, the tokens to travel on the Metro will be available at ticket counters inside the station. DMRC chief public relations officer Anuj Dayal said, "We won't have ticket counters outside our Metro station. After people start using the Metro, we will consult Northern Railway to see if counters are required near the railway station or where people disembark on the platform."

One of the most interesting features of this 45-feet-deep station is that Metro tracks go right below the railway lines. DMRC used special tunnelling machines to make passage under the ground till CP and Chawri stations, which are on either side of the New Delhi Metro station.

DMRC used an earth pressure balance machine to drill the tunnel from CP to New Delhi. To save time, the New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM) was introduced to tunnel from New Delhi to Chawri Bazar station. This entails limited blasting and use of shotcrete. Rock bolts and shotcrete are used as temporary support till a permanent lining is done around the circumference of the tunnel. Dayal said: "This method was introduced at a later stage as an additional tunnelling technique to ensure DMRC meets its target deadline."

The tunnelling activity had to be monitored and vibration meters were used to check any sinking of structures built over ground.

Dayal said: "Since the entire area had railway tracks, we had carefully scrutinised and looked for sudden earth movement. But there were no complications in this area."

Well, but I think it's nothing special than the hindi characters showing on MS word. This must be very simple thing considering India as a IT giant.
