An inspection for safety was carried out recently on the extended blue line metro between Noida City Centre-Noida Electronic City station. This is a 6.6 km long stretch that connects multiple areas.
A senior official said that the civil work on the extended metro line is over and trials are presently underway. SK Pathak, the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety [CMRS] inspected this stretch and the same will become operational soon.
The officials said that we plan to connect the Blue Line metro with the Aqua Line via a dedicated pathway and a carriage-way where e-rickshaws will run. The distance between Sector 51 Noida and terminus of the Aqua Line in Noida is of nearly 300 metres.
This is a completely elevated metro line and comprises of six stations including Sector 34, Sector 52, Sector 61, Sector 59, Sector 62 and Noida Electronic City.
The residents of Noida and Greater Noida will have last mile connectivity as soon as this extended blue line metro becomes operational as the metro station of Sector 52 is close to the Aqua line station.
At present, Delhi metro is operational upto 327 kms with 236 stations in Delhi and its surrounding cities.
Earlier last year, the Ghaziabad Development Authority [GDA] has planned to extend metro services from Noida Electronic City to Sahibabad via Vaishali-Mohan Nagar Metro line. This metro expansion will boost the real estate sector largely as the residents will get metro connectivity at their doorstep.
This 5.11 kilometers will work towards DMRC’s (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation) proposal to offer connectivity to Noida, Faridabad, and Delhi from Ghaziabad.
