[Taking stock]: Delhi Metro Rail's Delhi - Gurgaon & other Critical Rail Lines | Delhi Metro (DMRC) phase I & II projects' status

As part of BRICKS-n-MORTAR 's round-ups of the ongoing infrastructure development and allied construction / upgradation / rehabilitation related works, which directly or indirectly relate to the successful show of Common Wealth Games 2010 (CWG 2010) to be held in New Delhi -- the capital city of India, today we take stock of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation's (DMRC) metro rail construction and erection status of the projects in hand as on date.

The Delhi Metro Rail's mouthpiece had reported the status of its Phase-I and Phase-II projects sometime in the last calender quarter of 2009 as per which the status of the completed projects as well as the target route opening schedules of the corridors undergoing construction being:

With only about 15 weeks left as on date for the opening of the New Delhi hosted Commonwealth Games 2010

(CWG 2010), all the agencies, authorities, civic bodies, government departments, etc. involved in the infrastructure development are racing against time to complete the projects in time. Agencies like DMRC are doing their best in meeting targets, but somehow socks need to be pulled by all concerned in the fag end now.

Travel DelhiAt the time of publishing this post here on BRICKS-n-MORTAR, it is being contemplated by the agencies concerned to start the Qutub Minar - Gurgaon metro rail line from 21st June 2010, while the Central Secretariat – Qutab Minar stretch of the same line expected to be put to public use by August 2010, if not by end of July 2010.

Another much critical and awaited corridors under construction are the Airport Express Line (New Delhi Railway Station– Dwarka Sector 21) and the Central Secretariat – Badarpur metro rail lines. The same are given utmost priority so as to be completed on schedule.

Lets all wish the agencies concerned the best of luck so that they can meet the target dates. Its demanding and difficult of course, but surely not impossible!
