New Delhi: Delhi Metro will construct an underground subway across the busy Pankha Road in West Delhi to connect one of its proposed station under Phase-III with localities on the other side of the road.

The subway would come up near the Dabri Mor circle on the left side of Pankha Road moving towards Delhi Cantonment, enabling entry to the proposed Dabri Mor station from both sides of Pankha Road.

"The Dabri Mor Metro station will be constructed just adjacent to the Janakpuri C2D area on DDA land.

The subway will connect the station with localities such as Sitapuri, Dabri Mor Police Station, Sagarpur etc on the other side of Pankha Road," a DMRC spokesman said.

The station is part of the Janakpuri-Botanical Garden corridor under the Phase-III.

He said the subway will be an architectural landmark as it will be built without hampering the construction of a flyover which will be right above it at a height of 9.77 mtrs from road level.

"It will also pass below the existing drain on Pankha Road and the Metro tunnel will come up below the subway at a depth of 17.05 mtrs from road level.

An innovative technology known as `box pushing` will be used to construct this subway.

In the use of this technology, vertical excavation or large scale digging is not required," the spokesman said.

Apart from Metro commuters, general public intending to cross the busy Pankha Road will also be able to use this subway as it will be in the unpaid area of the Metro station.
