Delhi Metro starts Phase III test running
31 Dec 2013









INDIA: Test running on the first section of Delhi metro Phase III began at 11.27 on December 30 when the first Line 6 train to run between Mandi House and Central Secretariat was officially flagged off by Delhi Metro Rail Corp executives.

The 2·5 km section, with one intermediate station at Janpath, is expected to open for passenger service in March, six months ahead of the original schedule. It forms part of the northern extension of the line from Central Secretariat to Kashmere Gate. Construction started in December 2011, and has been completed in 24 months, which according to DMRC's Anuj Dayal is the fastest achieved for a tunnelled section of the metro network to date.

Intended to relieve the overcrowded central section of Line 2, the extension will take Line 6 services to a new interchange with Line 3 at Mandi House. This should relieve both the existing connection between Line 6 and Line 2 at Central Secretariat and the Line 2 - Line 3 connection at Rajiv Chowk, which is the busiest station on the network. Delhi Metro Rail Corp expects that 70 000 extra passengers per day will be using Mandi House by 2016.

The Central Secretariat – Mandi House link is the first project to be completed under DMTC’s Phase III expansion programme. This is due to see 140 km of new line and 90 stations inaugurated by the end of 2016, almost doubling the 190 km network delivered in the first two phases. Four lines are being extended and two new orbital routes built. Lines 7 and 8 will be the first driverless metro lines in the Indian capital.

So extension of line 2 (yellow), line 4 (green), line 6 (violet), branch of line 3 (blue), and new line 7 (brown) and line 8 (magenta) is under construction. Great news. I think all these new lines and extensions will be completed in 2020, Am I right?

Delhi Metro to install solar power plant at Dwarka station

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...cle5719684.ece

NEW DELHI, FEB 23:
In its attempt to conserve environment, Delhi Metro has become the country’s first mass transit system to begin installing solar power plants on the roofs of its stations.

The first 500 kwp ‘Roof Top Solar Power Plant’ is being installed at Dwarka Sector 21 metro station and is expected to be functional in six months.

A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for installing the plant was signed between Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and the developer, a multinational firm engaged in the installation and production of solar power worldwide, in the presence of DMRC’s Managing Director, Mangu Singh and other officials.

This is the largest roof top plant with such capacity in Delhi-NCR region under RESCO model.

Under this model, DMRC will pay for the units generated by the plant and the capital investment shall be provided by the developer. The power produced from this plant will be used to cater to the power requirements of DMRC at this station.

“After the installation of this roof top plant, Delhi Metro will also explore the possibility of installing more such plants at its stations, depots, parking lots as well as residential complexes,” Executive Director, Corporate Communications, Anuj Dayal said.

Efforts are also being made to integrate such solar plants with the station structures of Phase II, he added.

Delhi Metro has already taken up a slew of measures oriented towards the conservation of environment and the use of renewable means of energy.

In 2011, DMRC was certified by the United Nations (UN) as the first Metro Rail and Rail based system in the world to get Carbon Credits for reducing Green House Gas Emissions as it has helped to reduce pollution levels in the city by 6.3 lakh tons every year thus helping in reducing global warming.

DMRC’s first Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project on regenerative braking had also achieved many international firsts apart from earning valuable foreign exchange for the country.

Did MTR consults Delhi Metro? I found that most of the facilities of Delhi Metro looks so similar to MTR,especially the Mitsubishi-Rotem broad guage train,looks almost same with K-Train.(Note:K-Train is also made by Mitsubishi-Rotem)

Delhi metro's officials did visit Hong Kong among other cities when they were at planning stage about 15 years back but MTR was not a consultant. Similarity in trains could only be because of same manufacturers. Delhi metro's Airport line's trains too look similar even though these were manufactured by CAF.
