Over the past year, Delhi Metro has seen a lot of expansions in almost every way. New metro routes, existing ones being extended to reach more areas and on the whole, becoming more accessible to the everyday commuter. Now, Delhi Metro is set to expand even more and directly be connected to areas in Greater Noida, which is a major feat. As of now, commuters have to change from the Blue Line to the Aqua Line to get there but soon, the need for interchanging will be eliminated.

What’s the update?

As part of the new metro line, areas all the way from Dwarka Sector-21 to Greater Noida Sector 142 and commuters can board the metro at the Blue Line from Botanical Garden.

The upcoming metro route will run parallel with the Noida, Greater Noida flyway, which sees large amounts of traffic snarls, especially during the peak rush timings. Apart from that, the extended route will be especially beneficial for those who live at Janakpuri West as this will directly connect it to Greater Noida. The Blue Line was recently expanded to reach more areas in the city. They have come as a major boon to the metro system in the city.

What’s the extended route?

The metro extension will cover a total length of almost 14-kilometers, which leads us to believe that it will connect many existing areas in Noida which are not very accessible right now. Once the route is completely built, it will become one of the most favourable ways to traverse Noida. The recently launched Aqua Line was also a great salvation for the residents of Noida. However, it does have its issues and many commuters choose other modes of transport.

This extension on the other hand should be more to the commuters’ liking as it is a new and direct route on the Blue Line, which happens to be one of the longest and busiest metro routes today.
