YEIDA revives Metro link project between Greater Noida-Jewar

YEIDA

The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) has decided to revive the high-speed Metro link project between Greater Noida and the proposed international airport at Jewar.

Newspaper reports said that at a meeting held in the last week of April, officials of YEIDA discussed the issue with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation and the latter is likely to revert to YEIDA soon on whether the project and cost would be feasible.

The corridor was first proposed by YEIDA Board in February 2014 and again in June 2015. In June 2016, the DMRC had told YEIDA that it was too early to prepare a techno-economic feasibility report (TEFR) for the proposed corridor and suggested that it be done after five years.

According to YEIDA officials, they decided to revive the project in order to provide connectivity to the rapidly urbanising area.

The proposed 35-km Metro track will be aligned at the road level along the Yamuna Expressway. It will link the zero point of the Yamuna Expressway in Greater Noida to YEIDA’s proposed Jewar airport.

This track will also be linked to the under-construction 29.7km Metro corridor connecting Noida and Greater Noida.
