The metro construction in the Delhi National Capital Region (NCR) is moving at a fast pace, as the new metro rail line, which would run from Greater Noida, would be going right up to the upcoming Jewar airport, Rail Analysis India reports.
The project has an estimated cost of Rs 7,000 crore, of which Rs 500 crore was allocated from the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) from its annual budget during a recent board meeting. The project should be completed by 2023.
The proposal was approved by YEIDA in the board meeting and now would be sent for the reviewing and approval of the proposal to the state government. The metro project would be 32 km-long and will have dedicated tracks- a direct line to the upcoming Airport, and internal commuting between multiple sectors.
The metro rail corridor will start from the Knowledge Park II and end at the upcoming international airport in Jewar, which is also expected to be completed and inaugurated around 2023.
