The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Tuesday signed an agreement for the extension of the metro line from Dilshad Garden till the New Bus Stand. The MoU was signed by GDA vice-chairman Santosh Kumar Yadav and DMRC’s director for business development SD Sharma. DMRC managing director Mangu Singh was also present on the occasion.

Mangu Singh said they would try to complete the 9.41 km project before the stipulated time of three years.

“The project has seen the active co-operation of a number of authorities including the Union urban development ministry and NCR Planning Board,” said Yadav.

The cost of the project is estimated to be around Rs. 1,770 crore, of which the major share — Rs. 1,116 crore — will be borne by the UP government.

The stretch will have seven stations — Shaheed Nagar, Rajbagh, Rajendra Nagar, Shyam Park, Mohan Nagar, Arthala and New Bus Stand.
