Thank you for your nice comment, Highcliff.
Delhi Metro is undoubtedly the biggest, most efficient and best Metro rail network in southern Asia.
Also, I wouldn't be surprised if it's counted as among the nicest Metro rail systems of the developing world.

Metro U/C in the city of Faridabad (Haryana State)

Metrofreak explains the metro rail construction that's commenced in the city of Faridabad-

Two cranes of 400 ton and 330 ton capacity each were used to lift a 150 ton weight and 27 meter long U-girder to put it on the viaduct near the proposed Old Faridabad Metro station.

DMRC Director (Project & Planning) D. K. Saini and Director (Works) Jitendra Tyagi and other senior officials were present during this event.

The fully elevated corridor, with nine stations, will have a total number of 548 piers and 883 U-girders. It is likely to be operational by the end of 2014.

The corridor is an extension of the already operational 20.16 km Central Secretariat-Badarpur corridor of Line -6 which is further extended from Central Secretariat to Kashmere Gate covering 9.36 km.

Once fully operational, Line-6 will be running from Kashmere Gate to YMCA Chowk having a length of 43.40 KM and 32 Metro stations. Of these, five will be interchange stations: Kashmere Gate, Mandi House, Central Secretariat, Lajpat Nagar and Kalkaji Metro Station.

Delhi Airport Metro fares hiked


Airport Metro Express fares have been raised by Rs.30, the second such move by the concessionaire in two months.

A ride to Terminal 3 of the Delhi Airport from the New Delhi Metro station will cost Rs.150 for each ticket, while that to Dwarka Sector 21 will come to Rs.180.
The monthly pass (which allows 45 trips) has also been increased by Rs.300 to Rs.2,500 to travel between New Delhi and Dwarka.

NEW DELHI: Six crowded stations on the Metro's Yellow Line (HUDA City Centre to Jahangirpuri) will soon get platform screen doors to prevent accidents. A Metro spokesperson said the tender for the project that will cover Central Secretariat, Rajiv Chowk, New Delhi, Chawri Bazaar, Chandni Chowk and Kashmere Gate stations has been awarded.


The official said these stations were chosen because they are very crowded and lie underground. People in the underground stations are more vulnerable due to the enclosed spaces. "The tender came out last year; work on the project will start soon," the official added.

The decision to install platform doors was taken keeping in view suicide attempts and accidents in which passengers fell onto the tracks.

Officials said screen doors would be installed later on the Blue Line also. The Yellow Line carries more than eight lakh passengers daily while the Blue Line also crossed this mark recently.

New lines in Phase-III of the Metro network (Mukundpur to Shiv Vihar, and Janakpuri-west to Botanical Garden) will have screen doors at all stations. In Singapore, all metro stations have screen doors. The Delhi Airport Metro Express also has these doors at every station.

Lotus temple is an amazing structure. I really hope I have chance to visit again via metro. A question, how far is it from the temple to the nearest metro station?

DESCRIPTION: - Supply & installation of Polycarbonate Noise Barrier at parapet wall and fixing of absorptive type acoustic panel to parapet wall to control noise escape from metro rail track. In entire project, 8.0 mm thick solid Polycarbonate sheet with 32 STC rating was used at parapet wall of Metro Rail to control noise escape from Metro Rail track. Absorptive type metallic acoustic panel was provided to inner side of parapet wall to absorb noise, generated from air compressor, engine wheel & track.

DESIGN: -
• Structure of Polycarbonate Noise Barrier was designed for wind pressure according to wind zone --IV.
• Also provided hand rail at top of the Noise Barrier at walk way.
• Polycarbonate sheet was fitted on ms pipe structure with aluminum pressure pad profile which has rubber gasket for Polycarbonate sheet gripping and to control noise leakage from joints.
• Polycarbonate Noise Barrier was warranted for 10 years.

Difficulties:
We have to calculate the wind pressure on proposed Noise Barrier at Track which was at a height of 10 meter from the ground level and this means any imbalance in calculation of wind pressure could cause of sever mishap.
The location was highly residential so it was main issue to complete the work without making any inconveniency and traffic hindrances. But our execute team has done a great job and completed the work according to schedule.

PERFORMANCE: - Specific noise of Metro Rail was measured 85 dB(A) while achieved 60 dB(A) outside the Noise Barrier at 6 meter distance.

Phase III U/C: U/G Mukundpur - Shiv Vihar Line

U/G Ashram Metro Station

The underground station will be built in sections using a ‘top down’ method that will ensure minimum disruption at an intersection that is very congested most part of the day.

The news of a Metro station to be built at Ashram Chowk can give commuters the heebie jeebies. Any construction work at this congested crossing stretching over a few months can throw traffic in entire south Delhi and beyond out of gear. That’s the first thought. Next, one is bound to wonder where will they create the space for this. But this is not going to be another Sarita Vihar-Mathura Road mess where an underpass has undermined people’s normal lives for months. Metro is undertaking an engineering challenge, promising minimum disruption.
To be located just 6 metres away from the flyover, designing of the underground station and execution of the work were the initial hurdles. The presence of a flyover, heavy traffic load and location of CSIR apartments in a corner towards Mathura Road, 11 metres away, posed a huge challenge, say engineers in Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).
“We had to ensure that there was no tilt in the buildings in the area due to our construction activity,” says a DMRC official.
A rail track runs only 300m away from the station, under which the tunnel for the Metro tracks will be built. This will go 21m deep. Adding another layer to the complexity was the construction of two subways to connect with the station. These will now be built 8-10m deep, between the pillars of the flyover.
“One of the subways will start on the side of the district centre adjacent to the Nafed building while the other will be from the Bhogal side, next to the fire station. We will use box pushing technology to build the
subways as there’s little space to manoeuvre,” adds the DMRC official.
Incredibly, the subway will go between two sets of four pillars in a row that support the flyover.
The engineering challenge having been overcome, one had to plan to work with minimum traffic disruption.
“We had to therefore look at a construction technique that would not disrupt the traffic much and yet allow us to build the underground station,” says a Delhi Metro spokesperson.
Digging up the entire intersection was just not possible. So, a solution was found – going top down, by cutting parts of the road to construct the diaphragm of the station box and then closing that section and moving on to another. So, the top of the station will be built in stages.
“We will start by digging up the traffic island, put in the diaphragm, build roof slabs, close the cut and allow traffic movement. This will be done in stages along the entire area of the station box, which is around 265m by 20m,” says an official.
The traffic will be diverted according to the point at which the construction is taking place. It will take a year to finish the top part of the station.
Officials say that Delhi Metro will also be constantly monitoring the incline of the flyover and apartment once construction starts. In fact, they will build a thicker diaphragm to address the issue of tilt, say officials. “Usually the thickness is 0.8m, we will make it 1m,” the official added.

Check in services for international and domestic flights resume at New Delhi Metro Station

After a gap of eight months, the Airport Metro resumed the check-in facility in March at the New Delhi Metro station, for passengers taking domestic and international flights.

The service is available between 6 am and 8 pm and fliers can avail the facility from 2.5 hours to 8 hours before departure.

Currently, only Air India and Jet Airways will provide the check-in service. However, Airport Metro officials stated that talks are on with other airlines to set up their check-in facility.

"Jet Airways and Air India international passengers — for now only to the Gulf — can avail this facility at the New Delhi Metro station," a spokesperson said. While the Airport Express Line is connected directly to Terminal-3, passengers arriving at or boarding flights from Terminal-1 can avail the service from the Aerocity Metro station, he said.

A statement from the Airport Metro read: "The check-in facility will be beneficial for domestic and international airline passengers, who can handover their luggage well in advance and utilise their time better. This will be helpful for upcountry passengers — from states like Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan — who wish to catch international flights."
