The upcoming leg of Metro, connecting Gurgaon and Delhi, which is set to start within a month, is being awaited eagerly.
“With the buses so crowded and taxis being too expensive, going to Gurgaon for shopping was such a task. After the Metro starts, I can easily go to my favourite Ambience mall to chill with friends,” says Nithya, a resident of Rajouri Garden.
“Soon I can hang-out with friends at Janpath or Sarojini Nagar till late in the evening," says Shradha Gupta, a resident of Sector 56 in Gurgaon. “The Metro is not just bridging cities but also hearts.”
“I always wanted to study in North Campus and the new Metro line is going to make it possible for me,” says Akanksha Gupta, who has just cleared her class twelfth exams. “I thought I might have to take up paying guest accommodation near my college. But the news of Metro connecting Gurgaon to North Campus by July has made distance almost virtual. Now I can stay at home and study in my favourite college,” says Shashank Mehra, who dreams of getting into Sri Ram College of Commerce.
Gurgaon to DU
According to the Delhi Metro, the Metro line from Huda City Centre in Gurgaon to Qutub Minar is expected to start in June while the extended one to Central Secretariat will be running by July.
Once the entire stretch to Central Secretariat is operational in July, Gurgaon residents will get direct connectivity to important locations in Delhi such as AIIMS, IIT and Delhi University (North Campus)
