Gurgaon: The Haryana government is contemplating which routes to select One from the two options recommended by DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation) to provide connectivity to more parts of Gurgaon.
DMRC’s Feasibility Report

- One goes towards Gurgaon railway station, while the other towards Dwarka Sector 21.
- However, residents have demanded that they need both lines to have a seamless commuting option that covers most parts of Gurgaon.
About The Two Lines
- Both two lines will cover areas on the west side of the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway such as such as sector 45, 46, 47 and Subhash Chowk.
- Beyond Subhash Chowk, the routes take different paths.
- The estimated around 12km long railway station line would cover areas in Rajiv Chowk, Civil Lines, Roshanpura, & Sector 4/5.
- After crossing Subhash Chowk, the roughly 27.5km Dwarka line will head towards Hero Honda Chowk, Basai, Sector 7, Palam Vihar and Bijwasan before terminating at the blue line as well as Airport express line station of Dwarka Sector 21.
HMRC To Decide Upon Which Route Is More Feasible
- The decision on the route rests with the Haryana Mass Rapid Corporation (HMRC), officials reiterated.
- V Umashankar, additional chief executive, Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority, said,“The DMRC has prepared both feasibility reports as it have been roped in as consultants for the project. The HMRC will be undertaking the project and will decide upon which route is more feasible.”
