Workers from ITD Cementation have completed building a 128m stretch of the Delhi Metro Pink Line’s viaduct in Hasanpur Village that lay incomplete due to land acquisition issues.
The ownership of the land, through which the 58.6 km line’s viaduct (package CC-26R of Phase 3) now passes through, was a mystery since 2011 and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had no clarity on who owned it – private residents or the Delhi Development Authority. Demolition work began in March 2017 after the DMRC successfully concluded negotiations with local residents after paying Rs. 5.91 crores.

With this development, on the civil side of things, only the cantilever bridge over the Indian Railways’ lines at Anand Vihar is pending on the line’s stretch north of the Vinod Nagar Depot. Here’s a video shot on July 23 showing the progress made –
South of the Vinod Nagar Depot, the Trilokpuri section’s viaduct still remains incomplete.
