YFC Projects Pvt. Ltd. has restarted development works at their casting yard to facilitate the construction of a 4.28 km section of Delhi Metro Phase 4’s Aerocity – Tughlakabad Line, after being suspended for more than a month due to the nationwide COVID-19 related lockdown.
YFC Project’s Package DC-04 (Sangam – Saket G-Block) is the third section of the 61.679 km (and growing) Delhi Metro Phase 4 project on which work has commenced through a Rs. 726.08 crore contract awarded by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation in December 2019 with a deadline of 36 months.
This package combined with 3 other underground civil packages, DC-07, DC-08 & DC-09 (see package & status details), will form Delhi’s newest 20.201 km metro line connecting Aerocity – Mehrauli – Tughlakabad through 15 stations. The DMRC has not yet announced its official colour or line number, but it is likely to be numbered as Line-10.
YFC’s scope of works includes building a 6-lane double-decker viaduct on Mehrauli – Badarpur Road, an underpass at Saket G-Block, another 2 lane underpass from Mehrauli-Badarpur Road to Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg, emergency siding lines and four elevated stations at Sangam Vihar, Khanpur, Ambedkar Nagar and Saket G Block

4.28 km DC-04 is the only elevated section on the Aerocity – Tughlakabad line. The rest three packages are underground and the publishing of their tender notices along with the Magenta Line’s DC-05 (Derawal Nagar – RK Ashram) – to wrap up the tendering process for the priority 61.679 km routes – is dependent on the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)’s approval.
