It is the thirteenth largest metro system in the world in terms of length and the first modern public transportation system in India.
Delhi’s Metro is a subway system that connects Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida and Ghaziabad. It has been developed in 4 phases. Phase I and Phase II have already been implemented and are operational. Phase III is approved by the Government and the first implementations have already began. Phase IV is still pending.
For this phase, 2 new lines and 10 extensions routes have been proposed. Also, the approval of the Cabinet for 2 new lines have beed obtained, though only 7 extensions have been accepted, which would sum a total of 160.27 km. The first works are already being carried out and it is estimated that the completion of this phase will come in March 2016. It will have a total of 28 underground stations. After this phase is completed, Delhi’s Metro expects 4 million passengers per day.
It is estimated to reach completion in 2021, and the length building will exceed 100 km. However, several changes to the planning before construction begins can be expected.
