DELHI | Metro

Currently DM is 213 km in length. Once phase III becomes operational next year total length will be 372 kms. Phase IV is currently in planning stage. The new corridors planned for phase IV include Rithala – Narela (21.73 km), Janakpuri West – RK Ashram (28.92 km), Mukundpur – Maujpur (12.54 km), Inderlok – Indraprastha (12.58 km), Tughlakabad – Aerocity (20.20 km) and Lajpat Nagar – Saket GBlock (7.96 km). Total 103 km.

A busy year ahead for the fast-expanding Delhi Metro

Quote:
The Delhi Metro, which will complete 13 years in the city on Thursday, seems to have a challenging year lined up ahead with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) intending to commission its ambitious Phase-III network. Only 18 kilometres were added to the metro network this year, while in 2016 the National Capital Region will witness an expansion of 159 kilometres.

It was on December 24, 2002, that the first Metro service in Delhi was formally flagged off between the Shahdara and Tis Hazari stations on the Red Line. With an initial network of just 8.5 kilometres, six stations and one route in 2002, the Delhi Metro has expanded to cover 213 kilometres with 160 stations on seven corridors.

NOIDA - GREATER NOIDA | Metro

The first U-girder for the corridor was placed at Greater Noida's Delta station on Dec 18, in a record time of six months from the date of award of the contract.

According to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) officials, this is the fastest ever girder launched from the date of award of the civil contract - June 2015 - in the country. Girders of other Metro corridors, including Faridabad, Cochi and Lucknow, have been launched in 7.5 to 12 months.

Snippet from a news article

Quote:
The 30-km long elevated Noida-Greater Noida metro extension is likely to be thrown open by March 2017, months ahead of its deadline, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation chief Mangu Singh said today.

Singh made the comments at an event to mark the installation of the first ‘U-girder’, horizontal segments on which metro tracks are laid on elevated sections, of this upcoming corridor.

Highest-ever number of Metro trains to run during odd-even trial

Quote:
The Delhi Metro will press maximum ever number of trains —198 —into service to make an additional 365 trips to ensure that the rush during the 15-day odd-even restrictions is handled smoothly.

On a regular day, a total of about 100 trains remain in service out of the total 220 trains. So far, the maximum number of trains to handle special rush days that have been used is 195.

Delhi Metro boosts capacity during odd-even car restrictions
07 Jan 2016



INDIA: Delhi Metro Rail Corp has increased the number of trains operated and deployed extra staff to cope with the additional ridership resulting from the National Capital Territory government’s imposition of restrictions on the use of cars in the city.

The restrictions intended to reduce pollution are in force for a trial period from January 1 to January 15. Cars with even number plates can only be used on even-numbered dates, and odd-numbered cars on odd dates

Delhi Metro launches experimental freight service
01 Mar 2016



INDIA: Delhi Metro Rail Corp launched an experimental freight service on the Airport Express Line on March 1, making use of the secure luggage van on AEL trains to carry non-perishable and e-commerce goods.

DMRC said this is the first time an Indian metro has been used for freight transport. The 24 min journey time between the New Delhi and IGI Airport stations would be faster than by road, and the project could help to improve air quality by reducing the number of vehicles on the roads

DMRC orders Chinese trains for Noida metro
Friday, March 18, 2016



CRRC Nanjing is set to supply 19 standard-gauge trains for the 29.7km Noida – Greater Noida metro line under an agreement with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), which was signed in the Indian capital on March 17

DMRC had initially specified three-car trains in the tender, which was launched last year, but subsequently opted for four-car sets, which will accommodate up to 1034 passengers, after ridership forecasts were revised. The total value of the order is Rs 8bn ($US 121m)

Global bids for Gurgaon pod taxis in April
Quote:
Pod taxis, an idea with which Indian states have flirted for years, will finally debut in Gurgaon.
The National Highways Authority of India has laid the groundwork to roll out India's first personal rapid transit (PRT) network and will invite global bids for the project within the next fortnight. The pilot project will span a 13km stretch from the Gurgaon-Delhi border to Badshapur Mod on Sohna Road and is estimated to cost Rs 850 crore.
A project called the Metrino (in pic) -a PRT system in which pods are suspended from an overhead rail -has been under consideration for a while. Every pod can take up to five passengers. For the pilot project route, 16 stations have been planned, starting near Ambience Mall. A personal rapid transit (PRT) network is made up of small automated vehicles running at close intervals on a guideway with docking stations for passengers to get on and get off.While a pod can accommodate up to five people, there is also an option to hire an entire pod that will take a passenger straight to the destination, skipping the scheduled stops. The average speed of the pods is 60kmph.

A senior NHAI official said the network would be built within a year of the contract being awarded. "Pod taxi systems are best suited for this. We are keeping our options open, though, so that private players can come up with best system, including skyrail," the official said. A skyrail is also a PRT system, but is more similar to a ropeway .
The NHAI official said land required for the project is already available with it and Haryana government agencies. The project does not need forest and environmental clearance. As for financing, the entire investment will be made by the private company that sets up the PRT. Under the terms of the agreement, the company will recover its investment in 25 years through tickets.
Union road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari had announced last year that Metrinos will run between Dhaula Kuan in Delhi and Manesar. The overhead network for Metrinos has been planned along the expressway . Prime Minister Narendra Modi had travelled in a pod in Masdar City during his last visit to the United Arab Emirates.
The Punjab and Haryana governments had, in the past, announced a rollout of pod taxis in Amritsar and Gurgaon, but these never came to fruition.

According to estimates prepared by the NHAI, while building a kilometre of Metro costs at least Rs 250 crore and of monorail Rs 200 crore, the Metrino system can be built with just Rs 70 crore. It's lighter as well.
"The NHAI will roll out the project soon. We have set a target of a year. Subsequently , we could extend this to Dhaula Kuan and Manesar on each side," said the NHAI official.

  • Obstruction deflection device to remove small obstructions on track to avoid derailment
  • Two front-facing cameras to keep a tab on the tracks and prevent suicides

The new trains will operate on the upcoming line 7 (Pink line: Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar) and 8 (Magenta: Janakpuri West – Botanical Garden) of Phase 3. The trial run is likely to start in July.

  • Reserved seats darker in colour. If seat colour is blue, colour of two reserved seats will be dark blue
  • Strap outside coach based on colour of line. For example, in phase 3, line 7 is pink and line 8 is magenta

How are they better
  • MORE CAPACITY 60 additional passengers to be accommodated once driver’s cabin is removed
  • FASTER 10% increase in speed
  • ENERGY EFFICIENT 20% lower energy consumption
  • WIDER COACHES 3.2m wide coaches against the existing 2.9m
  • MORE SPACE Equipment placed beneath the seats to release additional space (2.0 sqm) for 12 more passengers
  • STAY CONNECTED Wi-Fi facility
  • DIGITAL ROUTE MAP - 37 inch LED type, fully programmable with dynamic change of split screens. Also LCD screens with videos, graphics, animations, real-time video streaming
  • BREATHE BETTER Improved air circulation

http://www.hindustantimes.com/delhi/...SnN8dttmJ.html




The much touted ‘Heritage Line’ of the Delhi Metro, which will connect Central Secretariat with Kashmere Gate, is expected to open by Independence Day. The number of barricades around the new metro stations is finally coming down after almost two years, with shop owners and locals in the congested Old Delhi area excited to see them take shape.

For Jamaluddin Khan, a shop owner in front of the historic Jama Masjid, the news is like a dream come true. “Every government only prepared projects for redeveloping our area, but nothing happened on ground.

With the Metro coming here, urban development agencies have finally woken up to our problems and are now enthused about making this place better,” he said, referring to the Jama Masjid redevelopment project approved by the Delhi government.



Heritage Line may open by Aug. 15



According to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), tunnelling work on the Heritage Line — which will include stations near monuments like Delhi Gate, Jama Masjid and the Red Fort, apart from the already functional ITO, Mandi House and Kashmere Gate stations — has been completed. “We have set an internal deadline of August 15 for the completion of the project, which is subject to mandatory clearances,” said Anuj Dayal, executive director (corporate communications), DMRC.

“Commuting will be very smooth now. But, we don’t know how much we will benefit by the Jama Masjid and Chandni Chowk redevelopment plans,” said Abdul, who owns an eatery in Daryaganj.

The 29 km Noida Greater Metro line is being constructed at a phenomenal pace. In less than a year, 40% civil works are completed. The depot at Greater Noida is about 70 % complete. If everything goes according to plan, this line will be operational by mid next year, making it one of the fastest metro systems. (Construction started in mid 2015).
