DMRC Airport Line Not Serving Airline Passengers No Amenities

31 12 2014
December30, 2014 (C) Ravinder Singh
DMRC Airport line which cost over $1.4b at 2010 exchange rate is Worst
in Passenger Amenities. Airline Passengers carry many suitcases but
there is no Trolley for them. Due to following deficiencies even
Airline or Airport Staff don’t use Airport Line. Not more than 10
Airline Passengers per train use Airport Line.
But worst of all Domestic Terminal 1 which is supposed to carry BULK
of Domestic airline passengers – 95% is not Connected by Delhi Metro
Airport Line.
As given in the arrival schedule of an airline from Dubai which is
just 2h30m flying distance arrival and departure could vary as much as
2 hours – 8:41 hrs and 10:35 hrs so Airport Line Could have reduced
congestion at airport due relatives arriving hours ahead of Exit of
their foreign or NRI guests and Zip through passengers to Dhaula Kuan
in 10 minutes.
Stations on the route are Copy of the conventional stations in layout
– Airline Passengers with luggage have to undergo Shifting of Luggage
at Ground, Mid Level and Platform level at all stations.
Instead of 5-8 Lifts of 20 People or 2 Tone Capacity, two for each
coach there is probably only one on 1 tone capacity.
At Dhaula Kuan which is on Interstate Bus Terminal and gate way to
West Delhi & South Delhi – no Cab Service and Porters are available
and In fact there is no Unloading Platform for Cabs to Load & Unload
Luggage. Shivaji Stadium and New Delhi stations of Airport line are in
congested areas difficult to reach and Aero City station is basically
one end of airport itself suitable for Five Star Hotels around it
without connection to other public transport.
No Arrival & Departure Info is provided in Delhi Metro Airport Line or
There is gauge difference also – Airport line is Standard Gauge 1.435m
whereas rest of DMRC lines have Broad Gauge lines 1.676m – due to this
Deficiency Trains of Airport Lines can’t operate on rest of DMRC
sections. Changeover is required at Dwarka Sector 21 to access
Noida-Vaishali line.
More Blunders – REMEDIES
DMRC now wants to extend this Lame Duck Line to Huda City Center in
Gurgaon. ‘The line is to be extended beyond Dwarka Sector 21 to IFFCO
Chowk in Gurgaon. The 12 km extension will have a 1.5-kilometre-long
(0.93 mi) underground section, while the rest will be elevated.’
1. Convert Airport Line to Broad Gauge and Directly Connect with Blue
Line 2. Connect Airport Line to Domestic Airport which is just 1 or
1.5 km. 3. Extension to Huda Center to have more Stations. 4. Add more
stations to Airport Lines and Changeover to other Metro Line
Crossings, Two Existing & Two Upcoming Lines. 5. Charge normal Fare &
allow use of Smart Card.
