Delhi Metro Phase 3 Approved!

NEW DELHI: The Delhi government on Monday gave its nod to a revised proposal for Metro's phase-III -- including two new lines and extension of another three existing routes -- and will now send the recommendation to a Group of Ministers (GoM) for clearance.

The decision was taken in a Cabinet meeting presided over by the Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit.

"We have approved five routes of a total length of 108 km under the Metro third phase and now we will send this to the GoM. A route from Najafgarh to Dwarka has been added," Dikshit told reporters.

Delhi government has decided to commission two lines -- Mukundpur-Yamuna Vihar and Janakpuri West-Noida Botanical Garden and extend three existing routes -- Badarpur-Central Secretariat up to Kashmere Gate, HUDA City Centre-Gurgaon- Jahangirpuri up to Badli and Dwarka line up to Najafgarh.

Dikshit stated that her government is keen to extend the coverage of Delhi Metro service in the capital as its services have been reliable, fast, pollution-free and hassle-free.

Under Phase-II, route length of 108 km has almost been commissioned except a section of 3.32 km from Kirti Nagar to Ashok Park, which is likely to be commissioned in the next two months.

Dikshit said in all, 67 stations will come up under the third phase. Around 41 km of line will be underground and rest 67 km will be elevated. The anticipated cost of Phase-III will be over Rs 30,000 crore including taxes and duties.

One of the new routes is Mukundpur-Rajouri Garden-Dhaula Kuan-Anand Vihar-Yamuna Vihar with 35 stations and total route length of around 56 km. This line will pass through Naraina with a new Metro station. Another new route is Janakpuri West-Munirka-Kalkaji-Jamia-Kalindi Kunj-Botanical Garden Noida with 22 stations and route of around 34 km.

Central Secretariat-Badapur Line will be extended up to Kashmere Gate with seven stations and route length of around 10 km. Another line is to be extended from HUDA City Centre, Gurgaon-Jahangirpuri up to Badli with three new stations and route of length of around 5 km.

The extension of 5 km route on existing Dwarka line up to Najafgarh has also been approved.

Dikshit added that with completion of the third phase it is expected that entire Ring Road will be connected with Metro service which will provide much relief to the commuters.

The Cabinet has also decided to get prepared a detailed project report on priority basis for extension of existing Dilshad Garden-Rithala line up to Bawana.

Correct AlokGarg. E-way metro is under Noida + DMRC + Centre purview and has nothing to with Delhi Cabinet. Amity is the station on sector 44.

My assumption is Hauzkhas to be connected with Nehru Place. And thereon Jasola/Sarita to be connected with Botanical Gardens via Amity Sec44. I doubt there would be an exclusive line for Munirka to Noida, right?

These are the tentative maps (original via TOI, found online copy via google)

at least something concrete, nearest metro station is 4km from my current Delhi residence, trust me its not a very big pain to take a bus for 4kms.

LP and e-way proximal resident can take advantage of this. not a very big plus but imagine few lakhs daily riders/professional working on e-way, wouldn't Delhi metro consider this, that's what they do. they look at the ridership and this could be a good move to join e-way from amity chowk.

if i stay in LP after 2 years and i have to work in gurgaon, i would prefer someone dropping/bus-auto ride to amity chowk and from there i take metro for hauz-khas - gurgaon instead of sec 7X-city centre--amity chowk. Why would anyone residing on e-way wants a metro passing through 7X which is not even concrete plan yet.

i feel its a good news for us.

As I read/remember beginning April project work for Kashmere Gate line extension is to start along with DK to Rajouri Route. I might be wrong on this.
