16-lane corridor to be linked to Rapid Metro
Deevakar Anand, Hindustan Times
Gurgaon, June 29, 2012


Conceived around four years ago, the much-awaited Rs. 600-crore Huda-DLF sector road is expected to be completed within the deadline of September 2014 despite the delay, an official said on Thursday. The 8.3-kilometre road that will allow signal-free travel from the Delhi-Gurgaon toll plaza to Golf Course Road will be constructed by June 2014, said S Roy, vice president, DLF corporate communications.
Construction major IL&FS has been awarded the contract for the 16-lane road which will reduce the travel time on the stretch from 30 minutes presently to seven minutes.

"The road will cater to approximately 15 lakh commuters, including corporates and residents," said DLF officials. The road extends from Gateway Tower on NH-8 to the end of Sector 55-56 and is designed to accommodate higher traffic volume.

The corridor would be fully integrated with the Rapid Metro system. Residents of DLF Phase I, II, IV and V, condominiums such as Belvedere Park and Belvedere Tower, Sector 55, 56 will benefit from the project.

Meanwhile, thanks to DS for the heads up for this. Here's a view of the northern section of the line which consists of the 'Mall of India' station on the right. The site for the mall itself is in the foreground.

Ghaziabad Metro in Delhi's NCR set to commence construction

March 1, 2013: Ghaziabad Metro in Delhi's NCR set to commence construction.
Ghaziabad is a large city in the State of Uttar Pradesh.

Lucknow, Mar 1 (IANS) For the millions who live in Ghaziabad, adjoining the national capital, the wait for a Metro ride into New Delhi just got shorter - the enhanced cost of the second phase of the Metro project has been cleared by Uttar Pradesh government.

Sources in the state government Friday confirmed that the state cabinet has given a green signal to "additional funds", superseding the earlier allocation for the second phase of the Metro rail project.

The fate of the ambitious project, set to decongest the national capital region and facilitate easy commuting, has been hanging precariously for the past few years, owing to change of guard in the state.

Official sources told IANS that while the state cabinet has approved the upped estimates of the second phase of the Metro rail, which comes to about Rs.1,116.60 crore, an official announcement to that effect would be made later, as the state assembly is in session.

The central government is set to spend Rs.344 crore for this project, and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will spend Rs.256 crore. The Uttar Pradesh government was to have spent Rs.991 crore earlier; the share was later raised to Rs.1,116.60 crore.

A decision was also taken to divide the cost that the state government would bear between four departments - the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA), the Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation, the State Industrial Development Corporation, and the Aawas Vikaas Parishad.

According to officials, the distribution of the budget for the Metro line into the four departments was a tedious exercise, but "settled now".
"A meeting with regards to the budget allocation was presided over by the chief secretary and the issue was taken care of," a senior official told IANS.

According to the plan approved by the state cabinet, the GDA would be spending Rs.525.10 crore, the municipal corporation Rs.185.90 crore, the UP State Industrial Development Corporation Rs.73.20 crore, and the Aawas Vikaas Parishad Rs.332.40 crore.

The second phase of the Metro rail was approved Oct 17 last year by the state cabinet.
This phase in Ghaziabad will extend from Dilshad Garden in Delhi to the New Bus Terminal in Ghaziabad near the Mahamaya Sports Stadium.

The detailed project report (DPR) on a new alignment from Dilshad Garden to New Bus Terminal along Grand Trunk (GT) Road in Ghaziabad was submitted to the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) in April 2012.

The 9.41-km corridor will provide an alternative to the current Anand Vihar-Vaishali line.
Officials said the second phase would have seven stations - Shahid Nagar, Raj Bagh, Rajendra Nagar, Shyam Park, Mohan Nagar, Arthala and the New Bus Terminal in Ghaziabad.

The average distance between each of these seven stations would be 1.35 km.
The second phase of likely to benefit more than 1.2 million residents and commuters.

With budgetary allocations done, and some other "teething trouble" taken care of following a "clear-cut message from the chief minister's office to fast track the Metro rail project", a senior official said it would only be a matter of time before the project gets rolling.
"The necessary clearances, the budgetary provisions are all in place now. The chief minister hopes to see the second phase of Metro rail in Ghaziabad very much in stipulated time lines," the official said.

Phase III planned (as of March 2, 2013) to be even bigger than originally planned-

On one hand I am happy about having Line 7 as a full circle making journeys shorter and with less interchanges, on the other hand I see Line 8 (ORR line, in brown) losing an opportunity to extend to east Delhi.

Some of the areas which were to be served by Line 8 earlier will now be served by Line 7 in the new plan but there will be some areas (last 4-5 km of Line 8's route) which were to be served by Line 8 earlier but now won't be served by either of the lines. If Lines 7 and 8 can share tracks from Mukundpur to Gokulpuri (they already have same technical specifications and rolling stock), then Line 8 will be able to connect left out areas in east Delhi.

Although, one good news for sure is that Phase-III will become even bigger if this plan is finalized.

There is no need to report to a moderator as we are often screen threads. Nor are there any infringements to any of the forum photo policies; I invite you and other members to see this post by our forum administrator. In this case, there are no rules broken.

As a global forum of urban transport, we value discussion and photographic updates of urban transport systems. Using photos taken by others on local forums and other websites are part of the standard process and are appreciated by many.

As a kind reminder for everyone, should any member find of problems of other members, one should immediately and directly inform a moderator instead of making public accusation posts such as these ones:

Phase I is ready but trial runs are still running, and the Government of India's final safety certifications are awaited.
In the meantime, work on phase II is well underway, and funding being sought for phase III.

four connections linking Gurgaon Metro station and Delhi Metro station, explained by IU

Pink - walkway on the 2nd level over the gurgaon metro's tracks. This hasn't been constructed yet.

Orange - Staircases. To access the Delhi metro, the stairs will help to go up to its platform level (2nd level). To access the Gurgaon metro's platform, the stairs will help to go down from the 2nd level to the 1st level (see this pic).

Red - slanting ramp connecting the 2nd level with the 1st level. (see this pic).

Green - ramp from/to the Gurgaon metro's concourse area in the side station building. This runs on the first level and can be seen in this pic.

Black - ramp which goes underneath the Delhi metro's viaduct (see this pic). This runs on the first level as well.
