Noida Authority makes changes to two Metro projects for city

Noida Authority

The Noida Authority on Monday gave green signal to revise the detailed project reports (DPRs) of two proposed Metro projects — the 11- km Okhla Bird Sanctuary-Sector 142 link and the 15-km Sector 71-Greater Noida Knowledge Park-V link, according to a report published in the media.

The decision to amend the two detailed project reports was taken at the 188th annual board meeting of the Authority in Sector 6.

“The 11-km Okhla bird sanctuary link will now originate from the Botanical Garden Metro station and terminate at Sector 142,” said a senior official of the Noida Authority.

According to the sources quoted in the report, the 11-km link was supposed to run parallel to the Noida Expressway, as per the earlier plan. But we now want it to take a different route so as to be able to provide metro connectivity to more residential as well as commercial areas.

The second DPR amendment — for the 15-km Sector 71-Greater Noida Knowledge Park-V link — was in regard to the funding pattern.


The 15-km stretch will be constructed at a cost of Rs 3,884 crore and will have nine stations. The project is expected to be completed by March, 2021.
