The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has started shifting major electrical lines and transformers to execute construction work on the 13.875 kilometre long Badarpur- YMCA (Faridabad) corridor.

As part of this work, a 220 KV and a 66 KV double circuit transmission line will be raised for the construction of viaduct at proposed NHPC Chowk station.

Another 66 KV double circuit transmission line, which is running along the proposed YMCA station, will be taken underground by laying about 12 km single core cables.

"Shifting of electrical utilities in this Metro corridor is a major challenge for our engineers," said Anuj Dayal, spokesperson, DMRC.

This is the first time in the history of DMRC that the electrical lines throughout the corridor at all piers and station locations are being shifted by DMRC.
