A Metro link connecting Kalindi Kunj and Botanical Garden in Noida was approved by the Board of Directors of the Noida Authority on Tuesday.
Chairman of Noida Authority Mohinder Singh said the cost incurred will be borne by the Noida Authority. “The Metro link between Kalinid Kunj and Botanical Garden has been formally approved,” he said.
According to officials, the 3.76-km route will incur a total expenditure of Rs 786 crore. The details of the project, however, are yet to be finalised and a meeting is being planned with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, Singh added.
The route will be an extension of Delhi Metro’s Phase-III plan of connecting Kalindi Kunj to Outer Ring Road.
“We are planning for the next 50 years. The population will rise and traffic would increase between the two cities. We are providing the citizens as many options of public transport as possible,” Singh added.
In February, the Authority approved a wide access road between Noida and South Delhi. The road connecting Sarita Vihar, Kalindi Kunj and Badarpur (in South Delhi) to Noida will be made eight-lane from four-lane.
