If all goes well, the city of Greater Noida is all set to have two new Metro Routes very soon. Taking this initiative forward, the Noida Authority is set to finalize the detailed project report (DPR) for two new Metro routes in the month of March 2015.
The proposed two new Metro routes, are likely to be collectively measuring around 27.5 km and are likely to come up at an overall cost of about Rs 5,500 crore. This move will bring commuting between Noida and New Delhi a completely different experience with lesser travel time.
As per the media reports on this issue, once the DPRs for the two proposed routes are finalized, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) could be formalized within the next six months.
As per the plan, the Metro network will be extended from Noida Sector 71, the originating station of the Greater Noida Metro link, in what might become a closed loop of metro tracks, which will be covering a number of parts of Noida, Greater Noida and Noida Extension in the form of various metro stations.
In its present form, the DPR is for a 11km metro line from Sector 71 to Greater Noida Knowledge Park V, via Noida sectors 122 and 123, Greater Noida Sector 4, Ecotech 12, Greater Noida sectors 2, 3 and 10.
Additionally, there will be another extension, of 16.5km, which will link Line 8 (Janakpuri West-Botanical Garden) of DMRC’s Phase-III through a proposed station at Kalindi Kunj near the Okhla Bird Sanctuary to Sector 143 on the route between Noida Sector 71 and Greater Noida Depot Station. This is set to enable better commuting within Greater Noida and hence make the place a great place to invest and ensure financial growth in the near future.
