HARYANA (Metro Rail News): The Haryana Cabinet on 19th of October approved the final Detailed Project Report for the Metro rail connectivity project. This initiative intends to increase connectivity between Rezangla Chowk in Gurugram and Sector 21 in Dwarka.

The meeting was chaired by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.

“According to the DPR, the spur or metro extension connecting Rezangla Chowk in Palam Vihar and Dwarka Sector 21 station will be 8.40 km long, of which 4 km will be from Palam Vihar to Sector 111 in Gurugram and the remaining 4.40 km will be from Sector 111 to Sector 21 Dwarka. This entire route will have seven stations,” an official statement said.

Khattar also approved the total project cost along with the Rs 1,541 crore contribution from the state government. The administrative secretary of the town and country planning department was approved to serve as the project’s nodal official for the signature of contracts and other pertinent papers of the project.

According to the statement, the Mass Rapid Transport System (MRTS) project will connect the majority of Gurugram with Delhi and its surroundings.

It will have interchanges with the Blue Line of the Delhi Metro (Dwarka Sector 21 station), the Gurugram Metro Corridor (at Palam Vihar Station), and the Airport Express Metro Corridor (IECC station).

The MRTS will also interchange with the Dwarka Expressway at Sector 110-A. The National Capital Region’s transportation system will operate more effectively due to these linkages.

Passengers traveling to the Delhi airport will have hassle-free transportation due to the check-in facilities at the Dwarka Sector 21 station.

The MRTS will increase the speed of road vehicles while lowering air pollution, by reducing the number of buses and intermediate public transportation as well as private cars.

“This, in turn, will result in significant benefits due to a reduction in fuel consumption, vehicle operating cost and travel time of passengers. Reduction in accidents, pollution and road maintenance costs are the other benefits to society in general,” the statement said.

  1. If anyone speak to any person travelling from west or south west Delhi to Guragon about traffic problem and potential solution to it, more than 90% people will say that the easiest solution is to develop metro line from Dwarka sect 21 to Cybercity. If this metro route would have developed, it would have been the most meaningful route added in the recent time by Metro teams. This line if added would be beneficial to thousands of passengers who have to travel n daily basis from Dwarka, Janakpuri, Uttam Nagar and other parts of Delhi to Gurgaon. It is unclear why metro is not extended from Sector 21 Dwarka to Cybercity, Gurgaon. It is a very heavy traffic route and metro lane here would be very successful. I request authorities to kind consider this suggest or at least evaluate it appropriately. Thanks
