There is an exciting news for the people travelling from Greater Noida to Delhi. The upcoming Jewar International Airport in Gautan Budh Nagar (Uttar Pradesh) will be straight linked to the Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport. By 2024, the Metro link and the Jewar International Airport are expected to be ready. For passengers to travel from one airport to another, it is likely to take a duration of 2.5 hours. On the other hand, people travelling from Jewar Airport to the South Delhi are likely to cover the distance in 1.5 hours. The forthcoming airport in Jewar is likely to decongest Delhi’s IGI Airport. As per a report, blueprint prepared by YEIDA consists of three stages.
Development in three stages
The first stage comprises developing a 20-km long Delhi Metro Line between Tughlakabad and Aerocity. DMRC is already working on this. The second stage consists of a 15-km long future extension of Aqua Line from Noida Sector 142 to Tughlakabad. And the stage comprises a 35.6-km long metro line between Jewar International Airport and Knowledge Park. For this journey of 82 Kms, passengers will need to change twice; once Knowledge Park II and the other at Noida Sector 142. Talking about Delhi Metro’s Phase IV project, the metro line from Tughlakabad to Aerocity is a part of it.
On the other hand, the other two metro corridors are being taken care of by YEIDA. This is likely to cost around ₹8,248 crores. The development of the last and longest route of the journey from Jewar International Airport to Knowledge Park II is estimated to cost ₹5,708 crores. It will consist of 25 metro stations. The planned Metro will run from Aerocity, pass Tughlakabad, Noida, Greater Noida, and then it will head to Jewar in Uttar Pradesh.
