NEW DELHI: Delhi Metro’s Phase-4, featuring 6 corridors measuring over a hundred kilometre that will take the network to the outer areas of the national capital and make the airport more accessible, was approved by the Delhi government on Friday.

More Details:

  1.  The decision will ‘go a long way’ in reducing congestion and pollution in the city, said  CM Arvind Kejriwal.
  2.  The total length of the metro corridor in the city will cross the 450 km mark, with the completion of 103 km long Phase 4.
  3.  Its Detailed Project Report (DPR) was cleared in June 2016.
  4.  Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said, the mega project, as part of which 72 new stations will be built, will cost over INR 50,000 crore (approx US$ 7,335.3 Million), which is to be borne equally by the Centre and the state.
  5.  He added,”The next clearance has to be given by the Union government. Once it is done, work will start. The project will come up within 6 years of initiation of construction work.”
