Update on Silver Line
In the latest developments on Delhi Metro’s Silver Line, the UIC-60 turnouts and scissor crossover contract (Package DT-07) were awarded to Voestalpine VAE VKN India in August 2022. However, the track-installation work (Package DT-10) faced a setback when DMRC abruptly cancelled the tender in August 2023, leaving the project’s progress in limbo.
On a positive note, Kalpataru Projects International Ltd. secured the lowest bid for the 25 kV AC OHE traction contract (Package DE-08), marking a significant stride forward in advancing the Silver Line project.
