Project Detail

DPR for Chandigarh Metro

Prepared the architectural chapter of the DPR for Chandigarh Metro. The project included the design of 26 elevated station, 12 underground stations and 1 interchange station on two corridors. The prime concern for the DPR is to give a design direction for the proposed metro system for any city.


A total of 10 Stations have been planned along the proposed NS Corridor. The first seven stations along the NS corridor are underground stations whereas the remaining three are elevated stations. Three of the underground stations have island platform configuration whereas the remaining four have a side platform configuration. The first five stations along the EW corridor are elevated stations followed by five underground stations and then another ten elevated stations. There are three island and two side platform configured underground stations along this corridor. The two corridors meet at sector 9 / Sector 17 underground station.


The elevated stations were proposed as balanced cantilever stations based on the model prepared by AA for the Lucknow Metro.
