The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is planning to connect All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) New Delhi to its Jhajjar campus with the new metro corridor via Gurugram. A team of DMRC officials conducted the first field inspection on this Wednesday. The new metro route, which is at the planning stage, will start from Dwarka Sector 21 metro station and pass through Dwarka Expressway to reach Badsa in Jhajjar District of Haryana.
The Jhajjar campus of AIIMS is known as National Cancer Institute (NCI) and metro connectivity is expected to ease movement of patients from its New Delhi campus. The DMRC officials have conducted the first field inspection to identify route alignment of the project.
Sources said that traffic and technical feasibility surveys will be conducted by the DMRC and the Haryana Government jointly before preparing a detail project report (DPR). The cost of the project is expected to be shared by both the state and central governments. However, it may take a few years for work on this project to start on the ground.
A team of officials headed by HSVP administrator Chandrashekhar Khare, comprised Nadim Akhtar, who is the advisor for Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC) as well as the DTCP chief town planner (CTP), DMRC advisor Aniruddh Jain, Gurugram district town planner (DTP) R S Batth, superintendent engineer Satbir Dahiya and executive engineer Anil Kumar, both of HSVP have conducted the first field inspection to identify route alignment of the project. The inspection was conducted between Dwarka Sector 21 Metro Station in Delhi and Badsa in Jhajjar via Dwarka Expressway and Dhankot, checking the 23km-long route for the availability of land and obstacles.
“The project is at concept stage. Today we conducted the first field inspection. Before a DPR is prepared, the government will conduct a traffic survey to determine the expected traffic, besides technical and financial viability surveys”, said Chandrashekhar Khare.
