Latest News on Aqua Line Metro Route

The Blue Line metro is operated by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). In contrast, the Aqua Line metro is operated by the Noida Metro Rail Corporation.

The long-awaited process of connecting these two lines has finally begun. The Noida Authority has issued a tender to construct a foot-over bridge (FOB) that will link the Sector 51 Metro Station of Aqua Line with Sector 52 Metro Station of Blue Line.

Commuters currently rely on free e-rickshaws to travel between the interchange stations. However it is claimed by passengers that a significant amount of time is wasted entering and exiting both metro stations.

The two stations will be joined by a 400-m footbridge, making it easy for passengers to transition from one line to another. Moreover, It is expected that the construction of a foot-over bridge will increase the number of people using the Aqua Line.

In a recent development, the Detailed Project Report (DPR) of extension of Aqua Line metro was presented to the Government. The DPR has been prepared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). The DPR was presented at the board meeting of Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA).

The Aqua line metro is being extended from Greater Noida Depot Station to Bodaki Station. According to the DPR submitted by DMRC, two stations will be constructed on the extension line viz Junpat and Bodaki. The extension track would be 2.5 Km long. It will be completely elevated.

After the examination by the GNIDA, the DPR will be sent to the Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC). The NMRC will rope in an agency to build the stretch. Once the extension is complete, it will immensely help the commuters traveling between Noida and Greater Noida, especially from Dadri and Bodaki areas.
