Delhi Metro plans to fully operationalize the pink line, the longest corridor, on July 31 by getting a train to run a stretch of Vihar I-Trilokpuri, which postponed the work due to land acquisition and rehabilitation.
The pink line of 58.6 km stretches between Majlis Park and Shiv Vihar, touching the dense parts of Western, South and East Delhi. At present, the train operates on two separate parts of this line; Majlis Park- Mayur Vihar I and Shiv Vihar-trilokpuri.
After the missing link, 1.5 km bridged, people travelling from West Delhi and South Delhi. Such as Shalimar Bagh, Punjabi Bagh, Mayapuri, Delhi Cantonment, Sarojini Nagar, South Extension, Lajpat Nagar will reach the Anand Transportation Center. Vihar isbt and train station directly.
On the other hand, the northeastern population and East Delhi live in areas such as Shiv Vihar, Maujpur, Jaffrabad, Welcome, Krishna Nagar, Karkardoom, Vinod Nagar, Mandawali, and Vihar Mayur will be able to travel directly to Sarai Kale Khan Istbt and Nizamuddin Railway Station and the South Campus of Delhi University.
The government’s sources told Indian Express that on June 30, they would be complete the delayed civil construction work throughout 1.5 km, and the focus would shift to do the necessary electrical work. On July 20, the corporation plans to submit an inspection by the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CMR).
The safety cleaning of CMR is mandatory before throwing opening the metro channel for passenger operations. For now, the DMRC has decided to launch commercial services on stretching on July 31, which will complete the entire pink line.
108 families in the Trilokpuri’s Block 15 block fall on a 1.5 km long stretch of disputed.
Metro struggled to move them to the nearest flat. Finally, the lottery was held for flats to the family affected by the supervision of the Delhi High Court.
In July 2019, DMRC said the work would eventually begin on the stretch, and it drifted tender. The pink line is shaped like a bow and runs parallel to the ring road. The pink line is also increasingly extended from Majlis Park to Maujpur.
The Metro authorities said that “solid progress” has been made in its construction despite a work crisis because of the existing lock between April 19 and May 30. “Working on the Fifth Delhi Metro bridge on the Yamuna River also occurs as part of the part. This corridor is close to the signature bridge. This corridor is important because the solution will complete the entire connectivity ring on the pink line,” DMRC said in a statement.
At present, 285 metro stations are crossing a network measuring 389 km, including Noida-Greater Noida Aqua Line and Fast Metro Gurugramacross Delhi and NCR. Metro trains are currently allowed to operate at a 50 per cent seating capacity to prevent density and violations of social conference norms.
However, passengers continue to increase over the past few days. As a result, long queues are being observed with outside stations throughout the region, leading to a commotion in some cases because the metro keeps several entrance gates open to regulate commuter movements inside the station.
