Delhi Metro To Reach Greater Noida’s Yamuna Expressway Soon

In order to boost metro connectivity inside the pockets of Greater Noida, the Noida and Greater Noida authority has prepared a fresh common proposal to bring a new metro line from Mahamaya Flyover to zero point of the Yamuna expressway.

A final proposal has been prepared and sent to the Uttar Pradesh government and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for the approval.

According to the sources, the proposed metro line will act as a secondary line for residents of the twin cities.

“We are waiting to receive the final approval from the state government and DMRC. Once we will get a final nod on the proposal, we will start working on the project,” said an official from Noida Authority requesting anonymity.

The Detailed Project Report (DPR) will be finalised once the government will share its viewpoint on the matter.

“In coming years, the face of Noida and Greater Noida will change completely. Commuting in twin cities will be no longer a herculean task,” added the official.

The UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav has cleared two major routes – a 29.7 km line from Noida City Centre (Sector 32) to Greater Noida, and another 6.7-km stretch from City Centre to Sector 62 in October. Both the projects are expected to be completed by 2017.

The Noida-Greater Noida Metro track will have 22 stations, out of which 13 will be constructed on the ground while seven will be elevated.

Two stations at Knowledge Park-I and Sector Delta-1 in Greater Noida are planned for future expansion.

Starting from Noida City Centre in Sector 32, the proposed Metro corridor will head towards Greater Noida via stations in sectors 50, 51, 78, 101, 81, Dadri Road, 83, 85, 137, 142, 143, 144, 147, 153 and sector 149 in Noida. It will enter Greater Noida through Knowledge Park-II and traverse Pari Chowk, Sector-Alpha 1 and 2, before terminating at Depot Station proposed near Knowledge Park-IV in Greater Noida. The entire Metro alignment is proposed to be elevated.

The Metro link between Noida and Greater Noida was first proposed in the year 2010 and received a go-ahead from the ministry of urban development in April 2014.

The ministry had also cleared DMRC’s appointment as a consultant for the project on a turnkey basis.
