New Delhi: Delhi Metro has added another feather to its cap.

A film on the engineering challenges faced by Delhi Metro during the second phase of construction has won the National Award in the 'Best Promotional Film Non-Feature films' category.

'The Dream Fulfilled’ Memories of the Engineering Challenges' was declared the winner today. The prestigious 'Rajat Kamal' award will be conferred to the film by President Pratibha Patil in May.

'The Dream Fulfilled Memories of the Engineering Challenges' is a 30 minute documentary which highlights the technical difficulties and challenges faced by the engineers during the construction of Delhi Metro?s Phase two under which 125 kilometres of Metro lines were constructed in only four and a half years.

The film has made heavy use of international quality 3 Dimensional (3D) graphics to depict the various engineering challenges that the DMRC confronted during the construction work in such an easy manner that people with non-engineering backgrounds would also easily understand, a DMRC spokesperson said.

The film showcases the various challenges that the DMRC team faced such as the construction of a bridge with a 100 metre span at Okhla over railway tracks, the signature bridge over the Ring Road at Moolchand, the viaduct over Dhaula Kuan, the Zamrudpur mishap and its eventual timely completion, the construction of a steel made station at Chattarpur etc.

The film was also widely appreciated during a screening at the International Film Festival of India held in Goa in November last year.
