NEW DELHI, INDIA (Metro Rail News): On Sunday, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said that they would construct an integrated flyover-cum-metro viaduct and a vehicle underpass near Soorghat on the Majlis Park Maujpur corridor of phase-04 in north-east Delhi, with the Public Works Department (PWD).
The flyover and vehicle underpass is part of a proposed elevated road along the Yamuna parallel to Ring Road between Wazirabad flyover (Signature Bridge) and Ring Road near DND.
“Integrated portals will be erected on which a road flyover as well as a Metro viaduct will be placed. While on one side of the portal, the Metro viaduct will be placed, a PWD flyover used for vehicular movement will be constructed on the other side. On these portals, the flyover and the viaduct will rest and run parallel to each other for a length of (approximately) 450 meters,” said DMRC officials. They added that a vehicle underpass would also be constructed below these portals, catering to the movement of vehicles coming from Outer Ring Road. The given deadline for this project is 2023.
Under phase-04, the DMRC is already building two integrated double-decker flyovers on which the Metro viaduct and the flyover will be placed one over the other. However, this stretch is unique since the flyover and the Metro viaduct will be parallel, said DMRC officials.
The Majlis Park to Maujpur corridor is 12.098 KMs long, comprising eight stations and is wholly elevated. This extension of the Pink Line will complete the ring of the Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar corridor and will be the first-ever ring corridor in the country with a length of about 70 KMs, said DMRC officials.
