The Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) will start construction of the Greater Noida West Metro in one month.
Ritu Maheshwari, Managing Director NMRC, said, “NMRC’s Aqua Line at present records an average 25,907 commuters daily. We are trying to expand the metro network and connect more areas and more people. In December last year, the UP government had approved the Greater Noida west metro extension corridor. We are going to start construction on this route in one month,” she said, adding that, a significant number of people will be connected with the metro network in this route.
The 9.15-km first phase will have five Metro stations i.e. Sector 122, Sector 123, Greater Noida Sector 4, Ecotech and Greater Noida Sector 2.
In the second phase of 5.8-km, four Metro stations, i.e. Greater Noida Sector 3, Greater Noida Sector 10, Greater Noida Sector 12 and Knowledge Park V will be developed. The Aqua Line’s Sector 51 station will become an interchange for the extension corridor. NMRC hopes to complete the first phase by 2022.
