Gurugram, Haryana- There was a detailed project, approved at a meeting of the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) recently, to extend the yellow line up to 25 stations. While approved from one end, the other end seems loose enough. It still needs to go Union Govt for approval. Now, coming to another scenario where an extension of the Blue Line Metro is considered, there is good news for the people. The proposal came up for discussion during a recent GMDA meeting in Chandigarh. According to sources, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar not only expressed his interest in the proposal but also asked for a study on it.
A senior GMDA official who was part of the meeting said, “The idea of extending and combining two metro lines will help people to commute, smoother and faster. As of now, the plan is to approach DMRC and ask them to extend the blue line till Bijwasan Border which then can be linked to Gurugram metro, yellow line station in sector 23”. This would mean the Blue Line connecting two ends of Delhi, Noida Electronic City, Vaishali- Ghaziabad with Gurugram sector 23, even if not the fastest but the feasible way to travel and connect.
If the project receives a green flag then it will be, without doubt, a major
connectivity boost to the commuters where they find it easy to cover almost all the parts of NCR alongside supplement yellow line metro, a corridor to Gurugram from Delhi. As for the blue line, State Govt’s approval is received but Centre’s nod is awaited. Moreover, soil testing has begun, making the construction to start pretty soon.
We can see clearly how the development in making the people commute to their daily schedules is being laid out very consciously and carefully, keeping in mind the welfare of the latter.
