Haryana Metro | State asks for report on Gurugram-Faridabad Metro link

Gurgaon: The Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC) has been asked to prepare a feasibility report on a proposed Metro route between Sector 45 in Gurgaon and Bata Chowk in Faridabad via Gwalpahari.

The instruction was passed on during a high-level meeting chaired by chief secretary DS Dhesi in Chandigarh on Tuesday, in keeping with chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s announcement earlier.

During the meeting, another proposed route to connect Rapid Metro’s Section 55-56 station with Dwarka Expressway via SPR also came up for talks.

Talking about the proposed Gurgaon-Faridabad route, officials, privy to the minutes of the meeting, said the proposed route would start at Sector 45 in Gurgaon, run along Gurgaon-Faridabad road via Gwalpahari and culminate at Bata Chowk in Faridabad.

“Initially, we had thought of connecting the two cities via Tughlakabad. Accordingly, last June, we had asked the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to conduct a feasibility test. But, in its report, DMRC had claimed that the existing Violet line (line 6) was running almost parallel to the one being planned and therefore, there was no point constructing one more route. Now, we are considering an alternative route via Gwalpahari and HMRTC has been asked to look into its feasibility,” said a senior official.

“However, the exorbitant cost that would be required to connect the two cities of Haryana remains a matter of huge concern. Besides, there may not be enough commuters as major parts along the proposed route have very less population. So, we want to get a feasibility study done before finalising the route,” he said.
