Gurugram metro expansion work to begin within five months

According to the Lok Sabha member, Gurugram, Rao Inderjit Singh, the delayed work of the Gurugram metro expansion is expected to begin in the coming four-five months.

The Gurugram metro network will connect to the older parts of the city by a loop.

Singh said the Urban Development Ministry would approve it next month once the Haryana government makes minor adjustments to the format of the approved detailed project report (DPR).

Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation Limited would undertake the construction of the project.

According to the DPR submitted by the Haryana government, the proposed metro extension will operate from Huda City Centre to Cyber City in a 31 km loop through Subash Chowk, Krishna Chowk and Sector 22. The route will have 26 stops, with an interchange station.

The metro extension remained stuck for nearly five years because the Haryana government could not finalise the route and the DPR till 2019.

As per the DPR, the metro stations proposed on the Huda City Centre-Cyber City route are at Sector 45, Cyber Park, Sector 46, Sector 47, Sector 48, Technology Park, Udyog Vihar Phase 6, Sector 10, Sector 37, Basai, Sector 9, Sector 7, Sector 4, Sector 5, Ashok Vihar, Sector 3, Krishna Chowk, Palam Vihar Extension, Palam Vihar, Sector 23 A, Sector 22, and Udyog Vihar Phase 4 and 5.

The expected cost of the project is Rs 6,400 crore.

During the GMDA board meeting held in April, the Gurugram MP also raised the problem of delay in the metro project, where he asked for an explanation from the officials involved for the extreme delay.
