- This entirely elevated section will comprise of 08 stations namely; Shahid Nagar, Raj Bagh, Rajendra Nagar, Shyam Park, Mohan Nagar, Arthala, Hindon River Station and New Bus Stand.
- This would be the second Metro Line in Ghaziabad after Vaishali and the first metro link connecting the interiors of Ghaziabad.
- This corridor will pass through the Sahibabad Industrial Area and will significantly impact the residential areas lying in proximity.
- The metro line will connect residents of Ghaziabad City with various parts of Delhi / NCR.
- Currently, commuters have to rely on last mile connectivity from Dilshad Garden to reach Sahibabad.
- Connectivity to Mohan Nagar from Dilshad Garden would also improve considerably.
- The stations of this corridor have been specially designed with the station buildings on either side of the road and the platform on the central verge along the viaduct. i.e. the platforms are not a part of the station buildings.
- The platforms are connected to each station building with the help of FOBs on either side.
- Each station has an FOB and 2 station buildings.
- Only the Hindon River station building is a standard station with a single building off the road and the platform inside the station building.
- This is the only station where the alignment also has gone off the road.
