The Hindu : Cities / Delhi : Trial runs start on Sarita Vihar- Badarpur Metro section


DMRC has started the trial of metro train from Sarita Vihar to Badarpur on Monday night and hopefully it will be open to public before Diwali. Really DMRC has worked fast to develop the central secretariat - badarpur stretch of metro because they have completed in a very short period. Sarita Vihar to Central Secretariat line has been started before commonwealth games but the remaining stretch of Sarita Vihar to Badarpur via Mohan Estate, Tuglakabad is under trials and will start its operation for public hopefully before Diwali. It is a Diwali gift given to for the people of Delhi and NCR by DMRC.

I hope that no compromise on quality has been done to meet the deadlines.

As per yesterday views the Badarpur Flyover is also being opened for traffic before games and the same has been reported by Times of India today on their website. The commuters from Faridabad to Delhi will be very happy as they face generally major traffic jam problem at Badarpur.

Big relief coming for Faridabad, Noida commuters - The Times of India

Faridabad

I read the news on indianews website that Haryana Government is agreed to the proposal of Metro connectivity for Faridabad and Ballabgarh. This news will definitely bring a ray of hope for daily commuters of Palwal, Ballabgarh & Faridabad as journey through Metro will be comfortable and fast. It will save lot of time which is wasted in traffic jams. I am also hopeful that Metro will bring down the traffic pollution level. As per the general awareness and observation peoples of Faridabad expecting that Metro route will go along National Highway-2 i.e. Mathura Road. Connectivity through Metro will also give the district industries a helpful hand. Various Huda sectors existing on both side of Mathura Road will definitely see a price rise in terms of Real Estate.

Chief Parliamentary Secretary Ms Sharda Rathore also announced that Faridabad will be developed as education hub as the district is hosting more than 500 technical institutes. It is worth to mentioned here that quality of basic education given by various schools in district is of international level as hundreds of students are selected in reputed engineering and medical entrance exams. Last year Distt. Faridabad makes history when it produced IIT-JEE Topper.

Ms Rathore also said that IMT would be developed at an area of 1800 acres in Faridabad and the pace of construction work of Badarpur Flyover on National Highway No. 2 would be increased. As per the news on Hindustantimes.com National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is trying to complete the Flyover before Commonwealth Games. Badarpur Flyover completion and construction of Metro will provide much long awaited relief to the commuters who face problem of traffic jam at Badarpur.

Badarpur Tree Plantation

Due to construction of Badarpur Flyover and Metro Rail in already congested area of Badarpur, Jaitpur, Mahipalpur, Palla, AAli village, Badarpur Border the pollution level is very high on NH-2 Mathura Road. You will hardly able to see any trees between border to Mohan Co-operative Industrial Area because the area is highly commercial and very crowded.

In view of increasing pollution tree plantation drive must be taken in Badarpur Area. Trees can be planted on the gap between road, road sides, open area and peoples residing and working in this area must be motivated to plant and maintain the greenery.

Delhi Metro Rail started Inderlok-Mundka Route

Today DMRC inaugurated its Inderlok Mundka line. DMRC has given it a name of Green Line and It is the first line of Delhi Metro which is using standard gauge instead of broad gauge and by starting of this route on standard gauge, Delhi Metro becomes the only Metro in the World having trains on both gauge standard and broad. Now the Metro network has expanded to more than 100 km.

The length of Inderlok Mundka route is 15.1 KM and will take 29 minutes in comparison to one hour travel by road. Residents and peoples of Paschim Vihar and Punjabi Bagh will be able to take benefit of this route. Now the peoples of Delhi must come forward to ride on metro and take off their vehicles from the road as it will not only save their time but will reduce the pollution in city.

By use of standard gauge metro has saved a good amount of money and DMRC team must be congratulated for it. Hopefully before Commonwealth Games will be able to start Badarpur, Gurgaon & Airport routes. Also DMRC must maintain strict safety measures and highest and best quality of construction.

Best of luck to DMRC team.

Metro to Manesar on the Cards (Around town)

As per the news on Indian Express website Captain Ajay Singh Yadav, State Finance Minister, Govt. of Haryana announced in his budget speech on Wednesday that Government is planning to extend Metro to Manesar in addition to extension of Delhi Metro to Faridabad. He mentioned that linking of Bahadurgarh with Mundka border is also under process and Gurgaon Delhi Metro link is near completion.

The expansion of Metro in nearby areas of Delhi will increase connectivity and reduce traveling time for Delhi for the people living in surrounding areas of Delhi. It will definitely increase business / service sector scope the city. Metro will also contribute to control increasing level of pollution in NCR region.

Hope that after completion of Commonwealth Games infrastructure projects will not put in to cold bags.

It is very important to complete the project on time as it saves taxpayers money.

DMRC Deadlines

Delhi Metro, Delhi ki San in last one year has seen two accidents claiming some innocent lives at site of DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation). Recent accident took place near Lady Sriram College in East of Kailash claiming many lives. After this incident taking the moral responsibility DMRC Chief Mr. E Sreedharan resigned and government did not accepted his resignation. As per reports available till now it is found that their is a fault in design of pillar and may be sub standard material had been used, I request Mr. Sreedharan to go for checking of all metro bridges, pillars, stations and wherever a fault is found the corrective action must be taken on urgent basis and the guilty must be brought to justice. Repair work of damaged metro bridges/pillars etc. must be recovered from the person / company responsible for it. Moreover all the design/drawings/material/technique used for ongoing work at different sites must be submitted sent to a special team constituted by technical experts but not by bureaucrats/political person and team must do the work in very fast manner. Then wherever team found any loophole it must be corrected on immediate basis without any delays.

Also it must be checked that all who suffered in these accidents gets claims/support/help without any hassles and no corruption is used in this process.

I wish Best of Luck to Mr. E Sreedharan for completion his commonwealth games deadline to complete phase II of Delhi Metro.

Delhi Metro Rail

Government of India and the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi, in equal partnership have set up a company named Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. under the Companies Act, 1956. The Delhi metro rail project presented a picture of success in front of whole world over passing the hurdles of bureaucracy, political stunts, corruption and other problems which generally occurs in the path of any Government project. It has been delivered before set schedule and within its budget limits. Metro rail runs on at a speed of 80 km per hour. Delhi Metro provides a comfortable journey as the population of capital has increased from 57 lacs in 1981 to 162 in 2006. In 1980 approximately 5 lakhs vehicles were plying on the roads in while in 2007 more than 50 lacs vehicles are plying on the roads leading to problems of traffic jams, pollution, accidents on the roads due to traffic and increased number of vehicles, although the road network had been increased from time to time. Roads cover 25% area of city and still not sufficient as numbers of vehicles are growing at a very rapid speed and personally I would say that the people’s car ‘Nano’ by TATA will increased it like anything. The solution of above all problems is Delhi Metro Rail. Metro since its first journey in 2004 had greatly improved the situation and first railway project in the world to earn carbon credit. United Nations counted the metro under the Clean Development Mechanism. The number of riders has increased by 26% in year 2007. Twenty crores commuters have used metro in last year. In 2007 earnings of metro is 236 crores According to an estimate due to metro their will be 1600 less buses on the roads, saving of fuel and less pollution, less accidents on the roads. Metro currently run on three lines. First line from Shahdara to Rithala, Second from Vishwa Vidyalaya to Central Secretariat and third one from Indraprastha to Dwarka having total no. of 59 stations using high standards of safety. It Coaches are designed for comfort and safety and automatic door opening and closing mechanism automatic brakes in case of accidental opening of gates and facility for passengers to talk to driver in Emergency.

The security of Metro has been equipped with latest and automatic safety equipments from CISF.

Metro has been planned for complete NCR region the work is in progress for taking it Noida, Gurgaon and upto Nangloi.

Metro rail provides facility of escalators on its stations with emergency stop button on top, bottom and middle.

At last I can say metro has presented a role model to be followed for other congested metro cities.
