Haryana government has asked the Centre to provide more metro links to the state which includes metro connectivity between Faridabad to Gurgaon and Dwarka to IFFCO Chowk.
In a communication, the state government has also sought extension of metro from IFFCO Chowk to Sohna road. It also sought extension of metro to Kundli, Sonipat and metro link from YMCA Chowk, Faridabad to Ballabhgarh, said an official release here.
Metro lines of 25-km-length are under construction including 13.875 kms in Faridabad, 4.875 kms in Bahadurgarh and 6.5 km in Gurgaon.
On metro link between Faridabad and Gurgaon, the state government has pointed out that there is a proposal to link Qutub Minar and Badarpur stations by 2021 in Phase IV of Delhi Metro.
Haryana has requested Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu to get the link between Qutub Minar and Badarpur station completed by 2018.
Since the line between Qutub Minar and Badarpur stations will pass through Delhi area, the state has requested that a spur may be planned along this line, which may pass through the inhabited areas of northern Faridabad in Haryana, starting from Surajkund, and connect to an appropriate Metro station located on Delhi-Faridabad route.
About metro link between Sector 21, Dwarka, and IFFCO Chowk and Gurgaon, the state has requested Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (DMRC) to revise the DPR expeditiously.
This link would not only provide smooth connectivity between Gurgaon city and Dwarka but also to Delhi airport, it said.
On Metro extension from IFFCO Chowk to Sohna road, Gurgaon, in Phase IV of Delhi Metro, Haryana has requested DMRC to prepare the feasibility report.
It will provide direct connectivity to the people living on Sohna road and the surrounding areas with Delhi, it said.
Regarding extension of Metro to Kundli in Sonipat district, Haryana has said that there is a proposal to extend the Rithala-Bawana Metro line to Narela in Phase-IV of Delhi Metro.
The state has requested DMRC to prepare feasibility report to further extend it to Kundli, so that the project is implemented in Phase-IV of Delhi Metro. It will provide direct connectivity with Delhi to the thickly populated areas of Kundli, it said.
On metro link from YMCA Chowk, Faridabad, to Ballabhgarh, the government has said that the Central Government has already approved the project and allowed DMRC to go ahead with the construction of the project in anticipation of sanction.
At present, Metro lines of more than 12 kms are operational in Gurgaon which is well connected with Delhi.
