    What’s the update of the Mongolpuri Depot?

  2. Shikhar Sharma says:

    Why didn’t DMRC decide to make this section underground? The outer ring road on this section is already pretty congested due to the elevated roads running directly above. I don’t think there is enough space to construct elevated stations.

    • TMRG says:

      Cost is the major reason, as you would have guessed.

      They’ll likely be acquiring land for stations. I’m hoping they don’t eat into the surface road’s space.

        The Widening work of Outer Ring Road through which this section passes has already been done few years ago when PWD flyovers were being constructed in 2015. Now they are much wider than the Ring Road through which major portion of Line 7 passes. Shouldn’t be a problem.

        • TMRG says:

          Good to know! Some followers have in the past said a couple places enroute were tight with little room to build. I’ll see if I can find those messages for exact locations.

          • Shashank says:

            The problem area’s I know is around Keshopur where the line will just be underground before going elevated and then will be Pperagarhi flyover, but there is large land parcel available on the Punjabi Bagh side after Rohtak Road and before it, we have a big park and DTC depot so it should not be a problem. Rest of the segment has wide service lanes on both sides providing ample space for elevated section
