Hat tip to Vibhav Sharma.
Last week, I wrote about the DMRC revealing the alignment of Phase 4’s reinstated 7.96 km Lajpat Nagar – Saket G Block line in south Delhi, but overlooked a small but notable tweak made to the upcoming Rithala – Narela line’s alignment in the Pooth Khurd area of north-west Delhi.
This 21 km extension of the 24.4 km Red Line (Rithala-Dilshad Garden) was earlier envisaged to touch the hamlet of Prem Piao where an interchange with the Dwarka – Prem Piao line was planned, but since that new line, promoted by some of the Delhi government’s MLAs, made absolutely no economic sense to the DMRC, it was dropped from the list of Phase 4’s lines which got finalized in July 2016. Subsequently, the DMRC revised the Rohini – Narela line’s alignment, and now instead of touching Prem Piao by running south of Pooth Khurd, it now takes a northern route around Pooth Khurd to reach Narela.
I’ve reproduced the DMRC’s map here displaying the location of all the proposed stations. The unadulterated version of it can be viewed here on their website. Note the inclusion of a new depot in Narela which along with the Shastri Park Depot will serve the entire 55 km line from Narela – Rithala – Kashmere Gate – Dilshad Garden – New Bus Adda (Ghaziabad).
Line Type: Elevated
Proposed 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
There hasn’t been any change in Phase 4’s status/approvals since my last post on it.
