DELHI METRO PROJECT: INDIAN PROJECTMANAGERS SHOW THE WAY
When E Sreedharan took over as the managing director of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation in November 1997, two doubts were raised about the subway rail venture: was it worth the effort? Equally important, would it finish on time? After all, putting together a subway railway system in a crowded metropolitan city isn’t easy. A large number of utilities like water pipes,sewerage lines, telephone and electric cables need to be relocated to facilitate the construction work; people have to be relocated…. In fact,India’s first metro project in the eastern city of Kolkata took more than 25 years to complete. In the case of Delhi, as many as 35 studies have been done on the transport problems of Delhi since 1950 – and anumber have suggested the Metro Rail for a solution in Delhi.
Circa 2004
Twenty-two kilometers of the metro project are up and running. Notonly has the DMRC has stuck within the completion targets, somestretches have finished six months ahead of time and the entire project isexpected to be completed by December 2005. To finish the projectfaster, work is going on three fronts simultaneously:utility diversion,barricading and actual civil construction.Eighteen months from now, the venture’s overground and undergroundnetwork is expected to carry 2.1 million passengers per day across 59stations. A train will run every three minutes during peak hours, and theservice, when running at full capacity, will carry 60,000 – 75,000passengers per hour each way.Already, the Delhi Metro project rivals similar services in London, Seouland New York.oThe station air-conditioning and ventilation system in tunnelshave been planned to meet the rigorous climatic conditions of Delhi. The coaches are all air-conditioned.oTicketing is fully automatic. Contact-less smart cards serve thepurpose of tickets for metro passengers.oAll entrances of the metro stations are controlled throughautomatic flap gates through which 45 to 60 passengers can exit

This was done by roping in Indian companies asconsortium members at each stage of the project.
