The Delhi Metro on Tuesday started shifting of major electrical lines and transformers to execute the construction work on the 13.87-km Badarpur-Faridabad corridor.
"As part of the work, 220 KV and 66 KV double circuit transmission lines will be moved for constructing a viaduct and the NHPC Chowk station. Another 66 KV double circuit transmission line, which is in the way of YMCA Station will be moved underground," a DMRC spokesperson said.
Shifting of electrical utilities in this Metro Corridor is a major challenge as the DMRC does not have the space required for the process. The DMRC has asked Haryana government for land and the electrical installations will be shifted once land is made available," A DMRC official said.
The DMRC has started shifting 11 KV/LT power lines including 63 pole/plinth-mounted sub-stations adjacent to the Faridabad Metro alignment. These lines feed most of the factories and households of Faridabad. Measures are being taken to ensure that consumers face minimum inconvenience. Nearly 4 km of line, including six transformers, have already been shifted," said the official.
