Delhi metro's longest line may not be ready before 2018-end
Delhi Metro's line connecting north and west Delhi with south and east Delhi has been further delayed. The Mukundpur-Shiv Vihar 58.6km line would operate in two segments as DMRC is facing land acquisition issues in Trilokpuri for a 4km part of the corridor. DMRC is short of allotted land for rehabilitating 108 families of the area; it has requested Delhi Government for more land.
"In Trilokpuri, we are not able to accommodate all these people on the piece of land given to us. This is because the available land for the dwellings has reduced as the road width had to be increased." said DMRC chief Mangu Singh.
The timeline is brewing!
