Four - lane road - cum - metro track may be delayed

JAIPUR: As the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation’s (DMRC) focus shifts to only run the Metro train by the deadline of June 30, the construction of proposed four-lane elevated road-cum-metro track project on Ajmer Road might miss the deadline.

The DMRC is constructing double-storey elevated road and Metro track project for the first time in the country. The construction of elevated road was proposed to ease traffic flow from Ajmer to Jaipur and vice-versa as the scope for widening the roads in the area is less. Similarly, the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) project on the route is expected to be 10 months late.

An official explained that on ground, normal traffic will flow; on the first level, four-lane elevated road is being constructed for smooth flow of traffic on the highway to Ajmer; and on second, Metro track will be built.

Sources in the department claimed, “On Ajmer Road it was expected that the train and traffic will be open for public together. However, as the civil construction of Metro corridor is delayed by six months the focus is just to run the train first and elevated road will be constructed afterwards. “He added, “Majority of four-lane elevated track has been completed, it will be operational three months after the train.”

However, a JDA official explained that the BRTS project will take at least 10 months to start after the Jaipur Metro is operational. “The work of dedicated BRTS corridor can only be started in June as both the projects cannot be carried out simultaneously. The work is done at height and possibilities of accidents arise if work is initiated beneath it.”

The length of elevated road towards Ajmer will be 2.95 km and 4.63 km from Ajmer side to Jaipur. The Metro will run from Sodala to Civil Lines on the second level and it will have a length of 1.6 km, explained the official.

The civil construction work of 9.25 km of Jaipur Metro corridor (Mansarovar to Chandpole) remains a challenge for DMRC as it has to complete the entire civil construction by June 2013, the deadline for the project.

Sources in the department claimed that the DMRC now plans to complete the civil construction work of the elevated track from Mansarovar to the railway station. The decision has been taken as the state government is eyeing the Metro project to secure vote in the next state assembly elections.

On the other hand, in another step closer to completion of Jaipur Metro project, the DMRC has applied to the Research Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO), a research body of the ministry of railways, to carry out inspections (trial runs) of the project in April or May this year.
