The DMRC was told to work out the possibility of integrating the alignment of the under-construction Northern Peripheral Road (NPR), also called Dwarka Expressway. The instructions were issued in a meeting attended by the officials of the Union ministry, DMRC and the Haryana government.
"The ministry has indicated multiple bids would be invited for the proposed project. The DMRC has been told to look for the possibility of integrating the proposed link with the existing Airport Express Metro line," said SS Dhillon, the principal secretary Town & Country Planning and Urban Estates, who was representing the Haryana government in the meeting.
Since the proposed route does not cater to the needs of the Old Gurgaon localities, the state government has urged the DMRC to look for the possibility of altering the alignment to address the issue, Dhillon said.
