Noida Metro: Planning, Building, and Connecting Places

Vaibhavi Dave Jun 29, 2022 0

The Noida Metro extends up to Jewar Airport, which falls under Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited (DMRC). This connects the Noida Metro to the upcoming airport via Knowledge Park 2, in Greater Noida. Deemed as the “Aqua Line”, this metro line dissolves the boundary between Noida and Greater Noida. The project proposal is in collaboration with the Centre for Environment Research and Development (CED). At present, the project is in its pre-construction phase. 

Noida Metro – Key Project Specifications

The 35.64 km long metro line will connect the Jewar Airport in Gautam Buddha Nagar, Noida, Uttar Pradesh and Knowledge Park 2, Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh. A 32.27 km stretch will be above ground, while the remaining distance, which is close to the new airport, will be underground. The closest station to Jewar Airport is the Pari Chowk station, connecting the airport to Knowledge Park 2 in Greater Noida. Earlier, this project included construction of 25 metro stations. The State Government discarded this decision and raised the proposal to build 5-6 stations instead. The project will start in 2024 and will be completed by 2027.
