Gurgaon: The Haryana government is looking to extend the Metro Rail further to parts of southern Gurgaon. The potential metro rail routes between Sector 45 in Gurgaon & Bata Chowk in Faridabad, and another from Sector 55 – Dwarka Expressway are being considered. The HMRTC (Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation) has been directed by the Haryana government to prepare its own feasibility reports for the two routes.
The Focus Will Be On Three Proposed Metro Lines Include
- HUDA City Centre- Gurgaon railway station & Sector 45
- Gurgaon-Bata Chowk, Faridabad
- The proposed line between Sector 45 & Bata Chowk will pass through Gwalpahari and mainly cover areas along the Gurgaon-Faridabad expressway.
- Also, the possibility is being explored of a metro rail line that may originate from Sector 55 & connect areas on the Dwarka Expressway & terminate near one of the proposed Metro lines heading towards the Gurgaon railway station.
DMRC Had Prepared A Feasibility Report
- Last month, the DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation) had prepared a feasibility report on two lines & submitted it to the state government.
The Two Routes
- The first route is of roughly 12 km long from the HUDA City Centre – Gurgaon railway station via Subhash Chowk, Rajiv Chowk & the New Colony Moar.
- The 2nd route is of roughly 27.50 km long and goes from the HUDA City Centre – Dwarka Sector 21 via Subhash Chowk & Hero Honda Chowk, covering the area of Gurgaon railway station & adjoining areas.
The state government’s decision is awaited on finalising one of these lines.
