Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has commissioned a traffic management survey on the 22 km long stretch of Mukundpur to Yamuna Vihar corridor in order to manage traffic movement on the busy Ring Road while constructing the metro line. This line is the longest stretch DMRC has ever worked and carried out such a survey.
DMC will start working on the 55.9 km Mukundpur-Yamuna Vihar corridor by the end of this year and this will the longest metro corridor, will be spread across the Ring Road.
To construct this line, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation will need a good survey though which the movement of the traffic will not be effected. To do this, DMRC has hired a specialized agency -M/s TPA Engineers Consultancy Pvt Ltd -to carry out a survey of sections of the Ring Road, to minimise inconvenience to commuters during Metro construction work on the arterial road. DMRC has already started working on the Bhikaji Cama Place to Shalimar Bagh section from 1st of September.
According to Anuj Dayal, spokesperson, DMRC, the agency working on this survey has identified 12 traffic junctions on the 22 km long stretch for the study.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said that the survey will help the corporation greatly to divert the traffic on Ring Road during the construction of the metro line. The survey includes study of the traffic flow and the possible routes where the traffic can be diverted during the construction. After the survey the agency will submit a report to DMRC and also give a presentation to the Delhi traffic police. DMRC will propose traffic diversions plans to the Delhi traffic police once the survey is completed and when they find a possible route to divert the traffic.
