Gurugram: The Metropolitan Development Authority of Gurugram (GMDA) has formally proposed that the new metro extension line will connect the Huda City Center station with Sector 21 Dwarka.
The decision comes almost two months after GMDA received the task of collecting comments from the public on two new subway route options for the city. On Tuesday, GMDA compiled its report and recommended the Dwarka route for its extension to the Haryana Massive Rapid Transit Corporation (HMRTC).
In its feasibility report submitted to the Haryana government in October, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) suggested two options: a longer route connecting the city center of Huda with Sector 21 of Dwarka and a shorter route connecting the city of Huda. Downtown of Huda with Gurgaon train station.
Public comments collected over 15 days indicated that residents of Gurgaon prefer a subway route between downtown Huda and Sector 21 of Dwarka. According to GMDA, the Metro project consultants received more than 400 “substantive” comments.
The 27.5 km route from the city center of Huda to Sector 21 of Dwarka covers Subhash Chowk in Sohna Road, Hero Honda Chowk, sectors 10A, 10.9.9A, Hospital ESI, the channel of sectors 4 and 5 (including the train station and adjoining area), Sector 23, Chauma railroad crossing and Bijwasan border.
