DMRC officials maintained that the average height of pillars on this corridor will be approximately nine metres and over 500 pillars will be erected to make the viaduct for the corridor.

Delhi Metro will be using specially designed pre-cast U shaped girders to complete the viaduct in 20 months. This is the first time in DMRC history that a single span of approximately 27 metres in length will be used.

The Badarpur-Faridabad link is an extension of the existing Central Secretariat-Badarpur corridor and will be integrated with it after completion. The Haryana government signed the MoU with DMRC for extension on March 26.

The extension will be constructed at a cost of Rs 2,494 crore. The land required for the construction will be provided free of cost by the Haryana government to DMRC on a lease basis.

This fully elevated corridor will have nine stations,and likely to be operational by 2014.
