The Cabinet has approved Delhi Metro’s Phase-4 project, covering 61.679 km route, of which 22.359 km will be underground with 17 stations and the rest elevated with 29 stations.

The three-priority corridor project will cost Rs.24,948.65 crore, said a release on the approval on 7 Mar 2019.

It will be implemented by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (DMRC), the existing 50:50 Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) of the Government of India and Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD).

On completion of these corridors, the Metro commuters will have more interchange stations which will connect the new corridors with the existing lines of Delhi Metro. The improved connectivity will offer commuters more options of travel by optimization of routes.

The addition of 61.679 km network through these 3 new corridors will also reduce congestion on the roads and will thus help in reducing pollution caused by motor vehicles.

The Tughlakabad – Aerocity corridor will further improve connectivity to the Airport. The total network length of the Delhi Metro will cross the 400 kilometre mark after the completion of these corridors. Fiinews.com
