Screen doors being installed at Delhi Metro stations to prevent an incident of passengers falling onto the tracks or getting stuck:


Also, progress made on more lines and present line expansion.

Delhi Metro is set to install automated platform gates at all the 63 upcoming stations of the Phase-III corridor. So far, only the Airport Express line has platform gates.

“Tenders have been floated to provide automated half-height platform gates at all Metro stations of Line 7 and Line 8 of Phase III. The platform gates will be installed at the platforms on build-operate-transfer basis. The signalling system will be based on communication-based train control (CBTC) implementing driverless or unattended train operation,” a Metro spokesperson said.

Line 7 (Mukundpur-Dhaula Kuan-Maujpur-Shiv Vihar) has 38 stations, while Line 8 (Janakpuri West- Kalindi Kunj-Botanical Garden) has 25. Officials said six-coach trains will run in these corridors.

Screen doors act as protective barriers, separating the commuters standing on platforms from tracks. These automated gates will be around 1.7-metres (5.6 feet) high — the average height of a man.

The planned height would allay fears of overheating at underground sections, officials said.

Earlier, Delhi Metro chief Mangu Singh had said the platform screen doors might not be feasible at all stations. “The Metro tunnels need ventilation, and will become overtly heated if there are platform screen doors at all stations. But at crowded stations like Rajiv Chowk and Kashmere Gate, which handle footfalls of over 5 lakh commuters daily, it can be useful,” he said.

Delhi Metro considered the proposal to install the screen doors, despite being an expensive proposition, following a spate of suicides on the tracks at stations and people getting stuck in train doors.

“The device will be installed at every Metro station in underground, elevated and surface sections. The doors will be roughly of the same height of the rolling stock. This will enable proper ventilation and prevent overheating of the underground tunnel. The exact design of the automated doors will be known after the bids are finalised,” an official said.

Installation of the screen doors will prevent incidents of passengers falling on the track because of overcrowding and help contain suicide cases.

Phase-III, which expands Metro connectivity by another 119.95 km, runs through a large section of Outer Ring Road and Ring Road. It is expected to attract a higher footfall.

With the completion of Phase-III, the projected ridership figure for Delhi Metro is 4 million daily commuters in 2016.

The gates will be used to generate advertisement revenue.

The private concessionaire will be able to use the advertisement space for 30 years.

Delhi airport metro to go faster from today
Indo-Asian News Service | Updated: February 11, 2013 02:28 IST

New Delhi: The swanky Airport Metro Express Line (AMEL) in the capital will run at higher speed from Monday, an official said.

"Currently the AMEL is running at 60 kmph. Delhi Metro has conducted inspections of the corridor. From Monday, the speed of trains would be increased to 70 kmph and to 80 kmph in a phased manner," said a Delhi Metro official.

The metro line, which started in February 2011, was shut for nearly six months on grounds of safety. On the 22.7 km corridor, the operations started in January at speeds of 30-35 kmph and gradually increased to 60 kmph.

Before the suspension of the service, the trains were running at a speed of 105 kmph.

The Delhi Airport Metro Line is a joint venture between Delhi Metro and Reliance Infra. Operations on the airport line were suspended July 8 last year after some faults were detected in the civil structure.

The Airport Metro, with six stations, ferries over 15,000 people daily. It has ferried 68 lakh passengers in over 70,000 trips in 15 months.
