CMRS Once Again Cancels Inspection of Delhi Metro’s Jahangirpuri – Samaypur Badli Line ; To Now Inspect on Nov 4 & 5

This is getting a little predictable and annoying.

Yesterday & today’s (Oct 28 & 29) scheduled inspection of the Delhi Metro’s 4.49 km Jahangirpuri – Samaypur Badli section of the Yellow line by the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety has been cancelled yet again. This time around, no excuse or reason has been provided. The CMRS has however provided new dates of November 4 & 5.

While the line has been ready since early September, the CMRS has consistently been delaying the line’s inspection without which the Delhi Metro Rail Corp cannot begin commercial operations. As a reminder, the DMRC had initially applied & invited the CMRS on September 9 following which the CMRS agreed to inspect the line on October 12 & 13. That inspection got cancelled due to “unavoidable work” following which the CMRS agreed to inspect on October 28 & 29, and now the inspection has been cancelled for the second time.

This section includes new stations at Haiderpur, Rohini Sector 18 and Samaypur Badli as shown below:

The Haiderpur station on this line is the most unique station on the entire Delhi Metro network as it has been designed in such a way so that it can also serve the platforms of Line-8 (Magenta) when it gets extended to this part of the town from Janakpuri West in Phase IV. As seen above, the station consists of 5 floors of which the first 2 will used for commercial purposes, the 3rd will serve as the station’s concourse, the 4th will cater to Line 2 (Yellow) while the 5th will eventually cater to Line-8 (Magenta).

    Hi,

    I’ve been eagerly waiting for this extension as it will make my Gurgaon much more easier!

    But these delays are frustrating!

    I’ve heard that one of the pillars in this extension is causing some problems and that is the reason for this delay. But nobody to confirm this rumor. Can you try and get some information on this?

      I haven’t heard of anything related to a problematic pillar, but I can check. Trial runs continue to be conducted every day, so the viaduct/structure must be fine.
