The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has invited bids for the construction of the 1.5-km-long extension and the station.

The Metro floated the tender recently while the feasibility survey of the project was undertaken last year, after the Centre proposed that the convention centre be brought under the fold of the high-speed Metro network.

New Delhi: The Airport Line of the Delhi Metro will be extended till Dwarka Sector 25, where a new underground station will be built near an upcoming international convention centre. 

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has invited bids for the construction of the 1.5-km-long extension and the station. Currently, the high-speed corridor runs between the New Delhi station and Dwarka Sector 21. The Metro floated the tender recently while the feasibility survey of the project was undertaken last year, after the Centre proposed that the convention centre be brought under the fold of the high-speed Metro network. 

 

A DMRC spokesperson said that the bids for the project would be accepted till August 14 and the tender will be opened on August 16. Last December, the Centre had approved the project master plan for the proposed Rs 26,000-crore international exhibition-cum-convention centre. When completed, this will be one of the biggest in Asia. The phase-I of the convention centre project is expected to be commissioned by June 2019.
