GHAZIABAD (Metro Rail News): Residents of Ghaziabad and Vasundhara of Uttar Pradesh were taken aback when the proposition to extend the Metro from Vaishali to Mohannagar and Sahibabad was put on hold, thus prohibiting the Metro from travelling beyond Vaishali.

The Uttar Pradesh government has requested the DMRC and CDA for a detailed report regarding the expenditure for the project. Notably, the locals had been agitating for nearly a year to extend the Metro from Vaishali to Mohan Nagar and Sahibabad.

 The metro corridor intended to be constructed between Vaishali and Mohannagar was 5.04 km in length and was planned to be built on an elevated structure. Four proposed stations included Prahladgarhi, Vasundhara Sector-14, Sahibabad and Mohannagar, from where passengers could board the Metro to their destination.

The projected cost of this project was estimated at Rs 1908.22 crore, and a Detailed Project Report was formulated five years ago.

A unique characteristic of this corridor was that Sahibabad Metro station would have joint entry and exit with the Delhi Meerut RRTS station.

A survey indicated that 37,438 passengers would benefit directly from this track’s construction each day. Therefore, the people approached various senior officials and ministers in Lucknow with their demand for the expansion of the Metro on both these routes.

The Sangharsh Samiti, the Federation of AOA and even some councillors were involved in this. As a result, it is said that this is the only project that can replace the Metro.

  1. This is very unfortunate. The extension would have resulted in the betterment of that area and Delhi NCR as whole. Seamless connectivity in any region helps in the development. How will the people who are living beyond vaishali will commute to Delhi or other parts of the NCR for their jobs /other purposes? If the extension of ghaziabad metro i.e. (vaishali – mohan nagar , Noida sector 62 – sahibabad) would have been executed it would have been a game changer creating a multimodal hub with RRTS at Sahibabad. Just think how much it would have benefitted not only that region but the people living in NCR as a whole

  2. Very unfortunate. No fund for extension Vaishali Metro most nearby city of DELHI . Surprise !!!
    The extension would have resulted in the betterment of that area and Delhi NCR as whole.
