Mott MacDonald is design consultant on New Delhi Airport Metro contract

Mott MacDonald's Indian operation has been appointed to provide detailed structural and civil designs for part of the Airport Metro Express Line by ASH JV, a joint venture comprising Alpine Bau GMBH, Samsung Corporation and Hindustan Construction Company Limited of India.

The Airport Metro Express Line, with a capital value of around £94 million, will connect New Delhi Railway Station to airports serving the capital of New Delhi. The project is being implemented in time for the 2010 Commonwealth Games which are to be held in India and is to be part of the Delhi Mass Rapid Transit System.

The Airport Metro Express Line has a total of six contractual segments, C1 to C6. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has agreed 'Design and Build' contracts covering electrical, mechnical, ventilation, traction and rolling stock systems. The ASH JV has been appointed to deliver on contract C1 which encompasses a 3861m long stretch with two underground stations, New Delhi Station and Shivaji Stadium Station.

Mott MacDonald’s team will provide design consultancy on all civil and structural works associated with the project. This will include:

  • Underground station boxes which will have three storey deep reinforced concrete diaphragm walls
  • A seven storey above ground car park
  • Twin bored tunnels
  • Cut and cover tunnels
  • Underground and above ground ancillary buildings
Ashit Shah, Mott MacDonald’s project manager said, “We are delighted to be appointed on this prestigious project. The challenge will be alignment where the rail level is around 44 m below ground level and crosses underneath the existing Connaught Place Station which also crosses the north south and east west corridors designed by Mott MacDonald in the first phase of the metro development.”
