A tender has been recently floated by DMRC i.e. the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation to construct the elevated segments that are proposed on the metro corridor between Aerocity and Tughlakabad.

DMRC will begin the construction of a double viaduct in Phase V. This 5.5 km-long metro stretch is planned to have a 2.4 km six-lane flyover on the second deck and one more below the same. There will be four elevated metro stations on this route each one at Sangam Vihar, Khanpur, Ambedkar Nagar and Saket G Block. The route will also have 12 underground metro stations.

Apart from this, DMRC has also proposed to develop a 430 m six-lane underpass at Saket G Block close to the Mandir Marg crossing. A road flyover is also planned to be constructed at an elevation of 9.3 m on the lower deck. However, the viaduct will be developed on the upper surface at a height of 18 meters.

On a whole, a proposed integrated structure is nearly 2.4 km long and will offer a 3-tier transport facility to the commuters, a DMRC official said. This includes 0 km long Aerocity – Tughlaqabad corridor, 28 km long Janakpuri West – RK Ashram corridor and 12 km long Majlis Park – Maujpur corridor.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation also plans to implement the same metro design for other two metro corridors that are Majlis Park to Maujpur and Janakpuri to R K Ashram. The work on all metro corridors falling under Phase IV has also started.

In August 2018, Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri dedicated the first phase of pink line on Delhi metro to the citizens. This 8.2 kms long stretch connects the South Campus with Lajpat Nagar market and offers easy connectivity to the popular markets of South Delhi.
