Thanks to my follower Pritish Singla for giving me a heads-up that the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has released a map of the proposed 103.93 km Phase 4 in their 2014-15 annual report! While initial details of Phase 4 have been made public in the past and various media houses have published their own construed version of it, this map is the first map to be published by the DMRC and can be taken as a good benchmark or idea for what’s in-store for Delhi until the final Detailed Project Report is ready.
The image quality uploaded by the DMRC is evidently not the best, so I’ve recreated the map with the actual alignment towards the bottom of this post.
Here’s the map the DMRC published. A higher resolution of it can be viewed here.
In Phase 4 of the Delhi Metro project, the following lines & extensions will be built:
• Rithala – Narela (Red line) – 21.73km
Stations: Rohini Sector 26, Rohini Sector 31, Rohini Sector 32, Rohini Sector 36, Rohini Sector 37, Barwala, Put Khurd, Bawana Industrial Area – 1, Bawana Industrial Area – 2, Bawana, Bawana JJ Colony, Sanpath, New Sanath Colony, Anaj Mandi and Narela
• Janakpuri West – R.K. Ashram (Magenta line) – 28.92km
Stations: Krishna Park Extn, Keshpur, Meera Bagh, Paschim Vihar, Peeragarhi Chowk, Peergarhi, Mangolpuri, West Enclave, Deepali Chowk, Madhuban Chowk, Rohini East, Prashant Vihar , North Pitampura, Haiderpur, Mukarba Chowk, Bhalaswa, Majlis Park, Azadpur, Ashok Vihar, Derawal Nagar, Rajpura, GG Sabji Mandi, Pulbangash, Sadar Bazar, Nabi Karim and RK Ashram Marg
• Mukundpur – Maujpur (Pink Line) – 12.54km
Stations: Burari Crossing, Jagatpur Village, Surghat, Khajuri Khas, Bhajanpura, Yamuna Vihar and Maujpur
• Inderlok – Indraprastha (Green line) – 12.58km
Stations: Dayabasti, Sarai Rohilla, Ahmal Khan Park, Nabi Karim, New Delhi Delhi, LNJP Hospital, Delhi Gate, IG Stadium and Indraprastha
• Tughlakabad – Aerocity (20.20 km)
Stations: Tughlakabad, Tughlakabad Railway Colony, Anandmayee Marg Junction, Tigri, Khanpur, Ambedkar Nagar, Saket G Block, Saket, Lado Sarai, Mehrauli, Kishangar, Masoodpur, Vasant Kunj (Sec-D), Mahipalpur and Delhi Aerocity
• Lajpat Nagar – Saket G-Block (7.96 km)
Stations: Saket-G Block, Sheikh Sarai, Chirag Delhi, GK-1, Andrews Ganj, Lajpat Nagar
As per a report from last year, the Lajpat Nagar – Saket line will be a spur of the Tughlakabad – Aerocity line, similar to how the Yamuna Bank – Vaishali line is a spur of the Dwarka – Noida line. In the next 3 years, I expect additional extensions of existing lines to be proposed which will take Phase 4 beyond the proposed 103.93 kms route length.
Once Phase 4 is complete, in 2 maps – here’s how the Delhi Metro’s network with the proposed 103.93 km Phase 4 will look like. Both maps have been embedded into the post to allow you to zoom in/out and explore for yourself!
By Phase: Phase 1 | Phase 2 | Phase 3 | Phase 4
After the funding pattern & mechanism for constructing phase 4 is decided and a bulk of Phase 3’s construction nears completion in 2017, the tendering process for Phase 4 will begin! I expect actual construction on the ground to start in 2018. 🙂
