Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is in the process of connecting Bahadurgarh with west Delhi’s Mundka by constructing a Metro corridor.
With this Bahadurgarh will become the third in Haryana to be connected with Delhi via the metro rail. DMRC is learnt to have started preparatory activities for the corridor that would enable travel between Bahadurgarh and Mundka in just 20 minutes.
The travel time from Bahadurgarh (City Park) to Inderlok will be around 45 minutes while a journey from Bahadurgarh (City Park) to Kirtinagar will take around 50 minutes.
The foundation stone for the project was laid in February and it has completed the soil tests necessary for carrying out construction work. It is in the process of identifying utilities.
The tenders for the construction of the viaduct as well as the seven Metro stations (see box) have already been floated and are expected to be finalised in a couple of months. The contractors are expected to be mobilised by August, reports suggest.
The existing Metro depot at Mundka will cater to the requirements of this corridor. Another new Metro depot will also come up near the Modern Industrial Estate Metro station in Haryana.
