If there's one thing the people of Delhi can agree upon, it's the fact that from the day of its inception, Delhi metro has been a saviour for the city. The kind of rush and traffic we experience on the roads of Delhi would have been ten time worse than what it is today.

The metro has not only provided for a faster and cheaper mode of transportation but has also connected areas far and wide. The ever expanding metro is ready to add another route to its network. Work on the much awaited Phase IV of Delhi Metro has finally begun and Delhi can't wait for another addition to the state of the art metro network.

What's the update?

The much stalled Phase IV of the Delhi Metro is finally ready to become a reality. The work on the three corridor-ed network has already begun and Delhi will see a new metro network progressing with the coming New Year.

Though the entire corridor will take a while to complete, the construction work for Delhi Metro Rail Corporation's Phase IV began on Monday at the Haiderpur Badli Mor of the Yellow Line.

What is exactly the Phase IV?

An addition to the already existing metro rail network, Phase IV will specifically extend the Magenta line of the Delhi Metro, and will have three new corridors. Mukundpur-Maujpur, R K Ashram-Janakpuri West and Aero City-Tughlaqabad are the three corridors which will cover a distance of 62 kilometres and have overall 45 metro stations.

The 62 kilometre Phase IV will be constructed with a humongous investment of ₹8,000 crores! Which is no big amount, seeing that the Delhi metro has not incurred a single loss since the many years of its inception.

Knock Knock

Though the new phase will take its due time to become operational, it is no news that Delhi can't seem to wait for the metro network to finally turn into a reality. The beginning of construction work is a new year's present to the people of Delhi and we're pretty excited about it.
