DMRC prepares DPR of metro route to Greater Noida

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has submitted the detailed project report (DPR) of a new 11.56 km Metro link from Botanical Garden Metro station on Delhi Metro?s Blue Line to Sector 142 station on Noida Metro?s Aqua Line, with aim to provide direct connectivity between Greater Noida and the Delhi Metro by creating a branch to the existing Blue Line, officials in the know of the matter said on Thursday.

Currently, Greater Noida and Noida are connected to the Delhi Metro via Noida Metro?s 29.7 km Aqua Line corridor. However, this connectivity to Delhi Metro?s Blue Line, which enters via Mayur Vihar and ends at Sector 62?s Electronic City Metro station, is not a seamless one. The new 11.56 km link will make the connectivity seamless and also take Metro closer to the greenfield Noida international airport in Jewar.

Providing Metro connectivity to the airport is a priority for both Delhi Metro and the Uttar Pradesh government, said officials.

?The DMRC has completed the DPR of this important link and submitted it to us for further study after we released them the fee of Rs 20 lakh for preparing the DPR. We will study the DPR and then send it to the Uttar Pradesh government for approval. Once approved, we will start work on this crucial Metro corridor,? said Lokesh M, managing director of the Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC), and CEO of Noida authority.
