NEW DELHI (Metro Rail Mews): The Prime Minister’s Office has suggested changes in the DPR of the Noida- Greater Noida West Metro.
Metro for Greater Noida West
In its DPR, the Noida authority proposed building a 14.9 km-long metro line starting from Aqua Line’s Noida Sector 51 metro station. The DPR also included the proposal to connect the Aqua Line’s Sector 51 metro station with the Blue Line’s Sector 51 Metro Station through an elevator.
The PMO has rejected the DPR for it doesn’t ensure seamless connectivity of the 14.9 Km long line originating from Sector 51 Aqua line with the Blue Line’s Sector 51 metro station as per its analysis.
This has come as a shock to the government of Uttar Pradesh. The Noida authority must find an alternative route to facilitate the metro line. The PMO has asked the Noida authority to change the route of the greater Noida west metro to ensure seamless connectivity with the blue line of the Delhi metro.
New route Suggested
The PMO has suggested originating the new route from Blue Line’s Noida Sector 61 station to reach Greater Noida West via Noida Sector 71, 72, Garhi Chowkhandi Village and Parthala Bridge. This has allowed the Noida authority to explore a new route to Noida extension rather than one originating from Noida’s Sector 51.
Approval from the State Government
Noida authority has requested the state government of Uttar Pradesh to permit it to prepare a new DPR for the Noida- Greater Noida West Metro link in compliance with the route proposed by the PMO.
