All You Need To Know About Delhi Metro Phase 4: Timeline, Routes, Stations & More
In a move to expand Delhi metro further and connect more places, phase IV of the metro that had been on the cards for long has finally been approved by the state government and the phase will cover six new corridors of the national capital.
Delhi metro’s phase IV will cover a length of 104 km across the six corridors and will have over 70 new stations in all the accessible areas of the city. Additionally, of the 104 km length, 31.47 km of the tracks will be laid underground, while the remaining 64.39 km will be on an elevated corridor. The major regions which will be covered under the phase are Rithala to Narela (21.73km), Janakpuri West to R K Ashram (28.92km), Inderlok to Indraprastha (12.58km).
Not only these areas, but Tughlakabad to Aerocity (20.20 km), and Lajpat Nagar to Saket G-Block (7.96 km) will also come under phase IV of Delhi metro. One can get a fair idea of the vast area that the phase will cover from the road map above.
One of the other technological advancements that the Phase IV makes is that it will adopt a layered form of construction. This means that the metro pillars will be increased in height and will make way for massive flyovers underneath the metro line. This makes way for future expansion of the roads in these areas.
The confirmation for this phase comes after a long tussle between the state government and the central government. The authorities heading this project have stated that work will begin as soon as 1 January 2019, so that they can deliver the project well in time. The metro’s phase IV is the most expensive DMRC project yet and is expected to come around by December 2024.
Recently, the Aqua Line connecting Noida and Greater Noida also got a Christmas launch date. We are eager to see what the future of the metro trains hold for the residents.
Have you ever been running late to the airport because of the sheer number of bags you have? If your answer is yes, then IGI airport has got you covered. Now, in a new initiative by the DIAL (Delhi International Airport Ltd) you can have your stuff transported to the IGI airport directly from your place of stay.
Delhi International Airport Ltd., the operators of IGI airport have partnered up with a Bengaluru based company called CarterX. In fact, this facility is not limited to be availed by only those taking off from Delhi, it can also be used to get your luggage delivered to your residence when you touchdown at IGI.
What's the update?
In a bid to make travelling to and from IGI airport easier for passengers, DIAL has undertaken a partnership with CarterX to start a service where a commuter's luggage can be transported to and from the IGI airport directly from their place of residence. This, essentially, is a step towards making checking in to the airport a breeze.
Additionally, if you're short on time and are planning to take the direct metro link to the airport, this is a great way to ensure that you don't have to lug your stuff around.
To avail the service, you will have to pay a fee based on the number, weight and size of the bags. The fee will also take into account distance to and from the airport, meaning the prices are going to be dynamically triggered. At any rate, the base fare is ₹299, which goes up depending on the aforementioned factors. For every 5 kilograms over 20kgs, an additional ₹100 will be charged.
This is certainly one of the most passenger forward moves we have seen DIAL take. The IGI airport is at par with the best airports in the world and this is something that should take its rating all the way up. DIAL and CarterX have both stated that with this service, they aim to cover the entirety of Delhi, including neighbouring states- Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
