Delhi Metro is expanding at a phenomenal rate. With all the station expansions and route extensions, Delhi Metro is connecting more areas than ever before. The newest expansion to the Pink Line comes in the form of double decker viaducts that will surely add to Delhi's city scape. The viaducts will come up on the Majlis Park- Maujpur corridor and will be a boon for residents in these areas.
The Pink Line happens to be the longest metro route in Delhi. Now, with the addition of two viaducts, one on top of the other, the route is all set to expand and provide service to areas that were devoid of metros.
As of the viaducts themselves, they will come up on the newest phase of Delhi metro's Pink Line, the Majlis Park to Maujpur corridor. Once the double decker metro flyovers are complete in the next two to three years, the corridor will also cover areas such as Yamuna Vihar, Khajuri Khas, Sonia Vihar, Soorghat, Burari and a few more.
In total, the route towards Maujpur will have a length of about 12 kilometers, thus extending Pink Line metro. Of these new upcoming stations, eight will be elevated (naturally, because they'll be connected to the sky high viaducts).
The viaduct on top itself will be 18 meters in height while the one below it will be half in size, 9 meters. Both the rail flyovers will have an equal length of 1.4 kilometers.
Delhiites are no strangers to dug up roads and inaccessible areas. However, this time, the DMRC has stated that they aim to keep disruptions to a minimum and not create a problem as far as construction activities are concerned.
At any rate, we're glad to see the expansion of the Delhi Metro. Once complete, Delhi will become one of the better connected cities in the country.
