Noida-Greater Noida new metro corridors fast-tracked

Metro rail connectivity between the twin industrial cities of Noida and Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh is set to be expanded with the commissioning of three new corridors. The state government has fast-tracked various clearances for these projects and the Central government is likely to give its approval next month.

The three proposed corridors are a 14.5-km metro line branching out from Aqua Line’s Noida Sector 51 to Greater Noida’s Knowledge Park-V, a 2.6-km corridor from the Greater Noida’s Knowledge Park-V on Aqua Line to Bodaki in Greater Noida and an 11-km extension from Blue Line’s Botanical Garden Metro Station towards Sector 142 Metro Station that is part of the Aqua Line.

The Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) currently operates 29.71-km long Aqua Line between the twin cities of Noida and Greater Noida. The corridor stretches from Noida’s Sector 51 to the Depot in Greater Noida.

Further, the Blue Line of the Delhi Metro connects Dwarka Sector 21 in Delhi with Noida Electronic City, with 12 stations in Noida. A walkway connects the Sec-52 Station on Blue Line with Sec-51 Station of NMRC's Aqua Line.

The work on these three corridors has been progressing at a tepid pace, as the requisite approvals from state agencies and the Union government are yet to come.
