Delhi Metro’s Aerocity-Tughlakabad corridor being built as part of Phase-IV project has been christened as ‘Silver Line’ by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). This will be the 10th corridor of the network, also called Line 10.
Silver Line has been selected as the colour code for the Tughlakabad-Aerocity Metro corridor of Phase-IV. The Majlis Park-Maujpur corridor or Line 7 is an extension of the Pink Line and will have the same colour code while the Janakpuri West-R K Ashram Marg corridor will be an extension of the Magenta Line or Line 8 with the same colour code.
The Union Cabinet, in a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in March 2019, had approved three out of the six corridors of the Delhi Metro’s proposed Phase-IV which will further improve connectivity in the national capital.
Under the approved segment of Phase-IV, 61.679 km of new Metro lines will be constructed across three different corridors comprising 45 Metro stations. These new sections will provide inter-connectivity among the already operational lines of the Delhi Metro.
The Mukundpur-Maujpur, R K Ashram-Janakpuri West and Aerocity-Tughlakabad corridors were approved by the Union Cabinet.
The other three proposed corridors of Phase-IV which have not yet been approved by the Union Cabinet are Rithala-Bawana-Narela, Inderlok-Indraprastha and Lajpat Nagar-Saket G Block.
