GNIDA i.e. the Greater Noida Industrial Authority gave sanction to the 14-km-long Metro link that will connect the city to the national capital Delhi through DMRC’s Blue line.
According to a report, the extended link will commence from the blue line Botanical Garden Metro station and end at Noida Sector 142 Metro station that falls on the Aqua Line. Also, this metro route will ply parallel to the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway as the botanical garden metro station will function as the interchanging station for those commuting between the Janakpuri West-Botanical Garden route.
Anup Chandra Pandey, chairman of the Greater Noida Authority said that Rs. 1,500 and Rs. 2,000 is estimated to be incurred to construct the metro line extension for which the Delhi metro rail corporation [DMRC] will be responsible. However, the Noida authority will be responsible for the funding of this extended metro line.
