NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Delhi Metro‘s under-construction Janakpuri West-RK Ashram Marg corridor is going to get one of the world’s tallest stations at Haiderpur Badli. It is also one of the highest sections of the Delhi Metro. Haiderpur Badli is going to be an interchange point between the existing Yellow Line (Samaypur Badli-Huda City Centre) station and the upcoming station of the Magenta Line extension.

Anuj Dayal, principal executive director (corporate communications), DMRC said that at a height of 24.25 metres at the platform level and 23.2 metres at the track level, the Phase-IV Haiderpur Badli station is going to be the highest elevated metro station in the world and will be as tall as a seven-storey building.

“Currently, work is in progress to install the pier caps for the adjacent viaducts after the erection of pillars is completed,” he said. “The work for the interchange facility started in December 2019. The provision for an interchange was made when the station was constructed for Yellow Line expansion in Phase III. The roof slab of the Yellow Line platform will act as the platform for Magenta Line,” he added.

The average height of the pillars of the Janakpuri West-RK Ashram corridor is 10 metres, but it will reach 20 metres at Madhuban Chowk, where the corridor will cross Red Line (Rithala-Shaheed Sthal) and increase above 25 metres at Haiderpur Badli as it crosses over Yellow Line.

The work of this station was challenging for DMRC as the construction of the pillars and launching of spans was to be done without impacting operations on Yellow Line which is one of the busiest corridors. DMRC has installed CCTV cameras and other monitoring equipment to keep a regular check on operations and a team of engineers is deployed 24×7 who monitor the progress.
