Greater Noida Airport To Have Metro Link

The proposed airport at Greater Noida will have direct metro connectivity with the capital. The UP government has told the aviation ministry it will extend the current Greater Noida Metro line to the airport site at Jewar, said aviation secretary R N Choubey. “This was conveyed to us during a recent meeting with the UP government. The Metro line currently is cleared till Pari Chowk in Greater Noida and will be extended from there,” Choubey said.

Delhi Metro Rail Corp (DMRC) ED Anuj Dayal said: “The proposed link of about 23 km is from Pari Chowk to Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Area’s (YEIDA) Sector 20. DMRC had prepared the alignment, station location and traffic study and had submitted to the UP government last year.”

The next stage will involve UP asking DMRC to prepare a detailed project report, work out cost of various options like under, over ground or at road level and then sanction the cost estimates. Elevated metro track costs about Rs 200 per km.
