Big Relief For Noida: Metro’s Aqua Line To Be Functional By November


The Noida Authority hopes to inaugurate the 29.7-km-long metro line that runs between Noida and Greater Noida. Additionally, an underpass is going through construction and is expected to be functional by the end of November 2018. Apart from the two projects mentioned above, an international airport at Jewar alongside the Yamuna Expressway, a 2.5-km-long elevated corridor above the Dadri road and a 5.5- km one above Shahdara drain are also to be inaugurated by the same time.

Chief Executive Officer of the Noida Authority was quoted as saying, “We are trying to finish all remaining work at the NTPC underpass before November. And the 29.707-km Noida-Greater Noida Metro link will also be ready for the public. Two elevated road projects will be the other mega projects on which we will start work this year.”

Hindustan Times quoted Dr Mahesh Sharma, Member of Parliament for Gautam Budh Nagar, saying, “We are hoping that the Prime Minister inaugurates the elevated roads and the Jewar airport, and opens the Noida-Greater Noida Metro link together at one event. We are working out the schedule to fix the date. Metro work is almost ready and formalities for Jewar airport are also almost finished.”

The aqua line is undergoing inspections to obtain safety clearances. The National Power Thermal Corporation (NPTC) underpass has already seen a delay of two years and is being built at a cost of Rs 55 crore.
