Help Delhi new metro line by Oct end
New Delhi: The Central Secretariat-Badarpur Metro corridor, which was opened only till Sarita Vihar before the Commonwealth Games, is most likely to be completely commissioned by the end of this month. Though the Delhi Metro had earlier said the line would be completed by October 12, work could not be carried out in full swing due to the event.

Delhi new metro line by Oct end

The new deadline for completion is October-end.

"We could not do much during the Games, but the work is picking up pace now. However, with a part of the corridor operational, the remaining work can be carried out only at night when blocks (power is switched off on the tracks) are taken. Due to this, work can be carried out only for short periods," said Kumar Keshav, Director (Projects), DMRC. "We are hopeful that it will be completed this month."

Work related to passenger amenities are being carried out at the remaining three stations -- Mohan Estate, Tughlaqabad and Badarpur -- on the corridor. Meanwhile, Metro stations such as Jasola, Sarita Vihar and Mohan Estate are likely to get foot overbridges as it is difficult to access them at present.

An FOB at the Jasola Metro station, linking it to Apollo Hospital, will come up soon, as the the station is next to the highway and traffic moves non-stop on the stretch. Another FOB is being designed at Sarita Vihar by the chief architect of the DMRC. Construction work is considered a challenge here as a high-tension power line runs over the stretch and the electricity has to be cut off to carry out any work, officials said.
