On 9th March 2019, while visiting Noida Sector-52 Metro Station on DMRC’s Blue Line & Sector-51 Station on NMRC’s Aqua Line with MD-DMRC & ED-NMRC, we took some key decisions to offer seamless connectivity to commuters between NMRC & DMRC networks.
I had announced that we will develop an all-weather pedestrian pathway & deploy e-rickshaws between the two stations which will offer free of cost rides. I feel immensely proud that the 300 mtr long walkway announced 4 months back has been dedicated to the citizens today.
