NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is planning to extend the proposed Rithala-Narela corridor of the Delhi Metro up to Kundli in Haryana to enhance connectivity to the neighbouring state. If approved, it will be the fourth expansion of Delhi Metro into Haryana, after the Yellow Line (Gurugram), Green Line (Bahadurgarh), and Violet Line (Faridabad) expansions.

The proposed extension involves extending the operational Shaheed Sthal-Rithala Red Line corridor. This corridor may become the first-ever connection between Haryana and Uttar Pradesh through Delhi within the Delhi Metro network. Initially, the plan included smaller stations designed to accommodate four coach trains, with the flexibility for future expansion to accommodate eight coach trains as the traffic demand grows.

Post approval, the total length of the corridor would be 27.31 kilometres, comprising 22 stations. The majority of the corridor, approximately 26.339 kilometres, will be elevated, with only about 0.89 kilometres at ground level. Of the 22 stations, 21 will be elevated, and one will be at grade (ground level).

The stations on this proposed corridor include Rithala, Rohini Sector 25, Rohini Sector 26, Rohini Sector 31, Rohini Sector 32, Rohini Sector 36, Barwala, Rohini Sector 35, Rohini Sector 34, Bawana Industrial Area – 1 Sector 3, 4, Bawana Industrial Area – 1 Sector 1, 2, Bawana JJ Colony, New Sanoth, Sanoth, Depot Station, Bhorgarh Village, Narela DDA Sports Complex, Anaj Mandi Narela, Narela, Narela Sector 5, Kundli, and Nathpur.

A press release states, “The route alignment and station planning for all stations have been revised. Currently, the topographical survey, traffic survey, and environment impact assessment study are underway for the extended section between Narela and Kundli, covering a distance of 5 kilometres. The DPR for the Rithala-Narela-Kundli corridor is expected to be submitted by the end of this month. Once finalized, the DPR will be presented to the government for consideration and approval.

The proposed extension will provide enhanced connectivity to Narela and other areas, benefiting residents of the new residential colonies. The extension will also link this region to the currently operational Red Line, which extends up to Ghaziabad and covers important locations in central and east Delhi.
