Update on Majlis Park- Durgabhai Deshmukh South Campus Section
The trials and testing on the 20.6 kilometre long Majlis Park- Durgabhai Deshmukh South Campus
section of line 7 (Pink Line) of Phase 3 has been successfully completed and most of the mandatory clearances required for inviting the Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) to inspect the section including Fire Safety Clearance, License for Working Lifts, Preliminary Independent Safety Assessment (ISA) Reports for Signalling and Platform Screen Doors, clearances from the Department of Telecommunications etc have been received by DMRC.
The papers for scrutiny and detailed examination by CMRS are under submission to his office and after these are cross checked, examined and scrutinised in depth by the office of CMRS, further action is expected. In addition, since the application involves voluminous data of civil, electrical, signalling and track, DMRC may also have to supply any additional information further sought by the office of CMRS. After this entire process, it is expected that a suitable date for inspection of the section will be indicated.
The section has 12 stations including three interchange stations: Azadpur, Netaji Subhash Place and Rajouri Garden. The Metro train will also cross Dhaula Kuan at a height of 23.6 metres (as high as a seven storey building) to reach South Campus from Majlis Park.AD/ED(CC)/DMRC
