Mott MacDonald to design six stations for Gurgaon Metro Phase II, India

Mott MacDonald is to provide the detailed design for six new metro stations on Phase II of the rapid metro rail network in Gurgaon, India. The metro is being developed by Rapid Metro Rail Gurgaon to help meet the growing transportation requirements between Gurgaon and Delhi.

Construction of Phase I, which comprises a 5.1km rail loop connecting Cyber City, NH-8 and Sikanderpur station on Delhi Metro Line 2, began in 2008. The INR1500 million second phase will see a 6.5km rail line extend the network southwards and include six elevated metro stations – DLF Phase I, Sushant Lok, Sec. 42 Crossing, Sector 54-53, AIT Chowk and Sector 55-56. The stations will be situated above existing carriageways and will include residential and commercial spaces.

Mott MacDonald will provide architectural, structural and building services design for the six stations. The project will seek to achieve LEED sustainability certification through the use of renewable energy sources such as solar power, energy efficient design and rain water harvesting.

Somnath Nandan, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “Mott MacDonald has been involved with Delhi Metro for over a decade and we are delighted to offer our multidisciplinary consultancy services on the Gurgaon rapid metro development. Located 30km south of New Delhi, Gurgaon is the financial and industrial hub of the Haryana state. This project is an important step in providing a sustainable solution to the city’s traffic congestion by reducing dependency on cars, inefficient urban sprawl and increasing the use of public transport.”

Phase II is expected to be completed by late 2016.
