Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) saved time
and money by using Bentley MX technologies on
this project to accomplish the following:
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd.
New Delhi has a population of 13. 8 million people, with population and traffic increasing at an
enormous rate. Today, the traffic on roads of New
Delhi is a heterogeneous mix of bicycles, scooters, buses, cars, and rickshaws jostling with each
other. This has resulted in such a chaotic situation
that road accidents kill an average of five, and
injure 13, people per day, The situation is expected to deteriorate further in the years to come.
Optimization of track alignment in the urban
area was done effectively without disturbing
the street furniture.
The objective of the Metro Rail project is to help
provide safe, quick, and comfortable commuting
for New Delhi’s 13. 8 million people. Line III of the
first phase created a network of 244 kilometers,
which includes 22 stations (two underground and
twenty elevated) and features the world’s most
sophisticated and advanced safety measures in
all Metro Rail stations and trains.
Designing of grade separators was
Fixing of the pier location, keeping
the underground utilities, was done
easily. It was extremely important to
fix the pier location at an initial stage,
because the design of superstructure
and shifting of underground utilities
was directly related to it. Any change
would have meant a huge expense.
DMRC customized turnouts according to its standards.
Drawings were produced in DMRC’s preferred
Accurate quantity calculations could be done
on short notice.
Rehabilitation of roads damaged during construction was done in three months rather than
six months. ;

CIVIL RAIL DESIGN
A joint venture between Bechtel
Corporation and Washington Group
Bechtel is extending the existing Washington,
D.C., Metrorail system to Dulles International
Airport. The new Metrorail service in the area will
result in travel time savings between the corridor
and downtown Washington, expand the reach of
the existing regional rail system, offer a viable
alternative to automobile travel, and support
future development along the corridor. The preliminary engineering phase of this project is to determine final fixed cost of the design-build contract.
Dulles Transit Engineers, JV used ProjectWise,
MicroStation, Digital InterPlot, and InRoads to
produce a fully integrated, high-quality prelimi-
nary design between its local office and other
consultants located in various regions. In a large-
scale project, the ability of various consultants to
access and store their files in the same database
for all to view and reference is vital for coordina-
tion and real-time updates. The firm established
and maintained a managed environment that is
secure, easy to use, consistent, and cost effective.
ing levels and by-level symbology, text styles, and
dimension styles, all to client specifications. Since
the deliverable is required to be in DWG format,
the firm builds its MicroStation files with AutoCAD
resources to assure a smooth translation. The look
and feel of the drawings, whether AutoCAD or
MicroStation, are consistent. ;
With MicroStation configuration at a site level,
consistency in drawings is controlled by establish-
