GREATER NOIDA, INDIA (Metro Rail News): On Wednesday, Metro officials announced that the Greno West metro work would start from December 2021. The tender has also been issued to select the operating company. The DPR of the project has already been prepared and sent to the Central Government. With the start of the metro train, Greno West will also connect Delhi-NCR. As of now, there is no public transport facility on this route. Hence, UP CM Shri Yogi Adityanath can lay its foundation stone.
The new route will be about 15 KMs. In the first phase, five metro rail stations work will be started. This metro train work started from Diwali earlier, but due to Corona-Lockdown, this plan got delayed. As a result, this route will be fully elevated.
It is worth noting that the metro route from Noida Sector-51 to Greater Noida West is 15 KMs but will start from only 5 metro stations. All the 5 stations will connect Sector-122, Sector-123, Greater Noida Sector-4, Greater Noida Sector-2, and Ecotech-12 Greater Noida West. However, 9 stations are to be completed on this entire route. With the commencement of the Greater Noida West Metro Line, the West sectors will connect the Aqua Line of Greater Noida and the Blue Line of the Delhi Metro.
According to the given information, the cost of this entire project is approximately Rs. 1100 crores. The entire route of Metro Rail starting from Noida Sector-51 to Greater Noida West Knowledge Park-5 will be elevated. But Rs. 492 crores will already be spent on civil work.
This project was approved in 2019, but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns.
