In a bid to provide relief to commuters, the Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) has announced that it is planning to open new corridors and other initiatives in the upcoming year.
The three proposed corridors are – Noida Sector 41 to Knowledge Park-V, Noida Sector 142 to Botanical Garden and Depot Station to Boraki corridor. The Uttar Pradesh government had given approval to the first phase of the first corridor last week.
However, the Detailed Project Report (DPR) of the second corridor is under revision, the DPR for the third one is yet to be prepared.
As per the NMRC official, nine stations will be developed in two phases in the 14.9-km Noida Sector 51-Knowledge Park-V corridor.
“The first phase will be 9-km-long and have five stations starting from Noida Sector 51 to Greater Noida West. The approval for this first phase was granted by the State government on December 3,” officials said.
Ritu Maheshwari, Managing Director, NMRC, and CEO, Noida Authority said, “We are committed to serving the public at large and are confident that in the years to come, the commuters from Delhi, Noida and Greater Noida will enjoy world-class public transport. The upcoming metro lines will change the entire face of Noida and Greater Noida.”
