The metro is being developed by Rapid Metro Rail Gurgaon to help meet the growing transportation requirements between Gurgaon and Delhi, which is about 30km away.
Construction of Phase I. The INR1500m (£18m) second phase will see a 6.5km rail line extend the network southwards and include six elevated metro stations. 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.
“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,” said Mott MacDonald project director Somnath Nandan. “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.
