DELHI (Metro Rail News): The new metro link which is proposed between Gurugram and Delhi is expected to be discussed in a meeting chaired by Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar. The proposed link will connect Gurugram’s Palam Vihar with New Delhi’s Dwarka Sector 21. Presently, Gurugram is connected to Delhi through a single route which is the Yellow line of Delhi Metro that culminates at Huda City Centre.
The detailed report for this project has already been finalized. In a letter Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation Ltd (HMRTC) said that the final report on the project has been prepared by Rail India Technical and Economic Service Ltd (RITES) which predicts that the estimated cost of the project will be around Rs 2,281 crore.
The project which was first proposed in 2019 is estimated to be completed by 2027. RITES will present the report to Khattar during the meeting and if the project gets approved, it will be jointly implemented by HMRTC and RITES.
The proposed link is a 8.4 km stretch, out of which the 4.9-km stretch from Rezang La Chowk to Sector 111 will be in Gurugram and the remaining 3.5 km stretch from Sector 111 to Dwarka Sector 21 will be in Delhi. The corridor will have 7 stations including 2 interchange stations which means four in Gurugram and three in New Delhi.
The stations under the corridor will be built in Rezang La Chowk, Chauma, Sector 110A, Sector 111, Dwarka Sector 25 and Dwarka Sector 21.
