More lines have been proposed.

Two new Metro links set to get nod

Quote:
NOIDA: Having put the Noida-Greater Noida Metro corridor on track, the Noida Metro Rail Company (NMRC) is all set to finalize two new Metro routes this month one from Noida Sector 71 to Greater Noida Knowledge Park V and the other from Okhla Bird Sanctuary to Noida Sector 143, eventually forming a loop covering various parts of the twin cities and Greater Noida (west).

The detailed project reports (DPR) for the two proposed Metro corridors, collectively measuring around 27.5 km and likely to come up at a combined cost of more than Rs 5,000 crore (Rs 200 crore/km), will be in place by the end of the month, officials said on Saturday.

According to officials, once the DPRs for the two proposed routes are finalized, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) could be inked in the next six months.

Metro for another NCR city

I don't know whether this will be an extension of Delhi Metro or part of N-GN Metro or another independent Metro line … but since it'll start from Greater Noida so decided to post the article here.

Pact signed for study of Jewar Metro

Quote:
GREATER NOIDA: The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation on Monday, for a feasibility study to be carried out followed by a detailed project report (DPR), for the proposed track between Greater Noida and Jewar.

The 38km Metro route will be a link between Knowledge Park II in Greater Noida and Jewar, which falls in the YEIDA area. The civil aviation ministry had last week cleared the proposal for a second international airport in the NCR, likely to be built in Jewar.

According to officials, the techno-economic feasibility report (TEFR) should roughly take three months to prepare. "The report will include details about the proposed Metro route alignment, the current status of the route, number of stations required and the estimated cost of putting the track in place," G P Singh, finance controller YEIDA, said.

Delhi Metro: Swanky Stations on Track

The metro stations coming up on the Jankapuri West - Botanical Garden corridor are going to have glossy interiors with artwork in bright colours. The concourses and platforms of the corridor's 10 elevated stations will be made in a unique "honey-comb" design. The stations' interior walls will have toughened glass cladding with attractive designs printed on those.



Also,106 kiosks will be opened at 74 stations, in a bid to augment revenue generation. Currently, such shops are seen only at major stations such as Rajiv Chowk and Central Secretariat. The Yellow Line will have 23 kiosks, while the Blue Line will have 38 kiosks.

Currently violet line gets most importance, it has extended both towards north and south. Almost half portion is underground.

7 lines, 2 gauges - Delhi metro is the best in India.

More extensions and new lines will be opened soon.
