Construction on the 6.8 km Metro link between Wave City Center Metro Station and Sector 62 began on Saturday, three months after Indo-Chinese joint venture CICO-YFC bagged the contract.
- The Noida Authority has handed over 2.5 acre of land to DMRC for the six elevated stations proposed along the route.
- “Work along the corridor has started near the proposed Sector 34 Metro station after barricading the area,” said P K Agarwal, Additional CEO, Noida Authority.
- The track up to NH-24 is likely to be completed by November 2018, within 36 months from the start of construction. The project is estimated at Rs. 2,000 Crore.
- This line will extend from the existing Wave City Center Metro station and connect Sector 32 to Sector 62 and touch NH-24. The route will have six elevated stations at sectors 34, 52, 59, 61, 62 and Electronic City (NH-24, Ghaziabad border).
- This Rs. 845 Xrore corridor is likely to be ready almost 3 to 6 months before schedule. Trials for the track could start by December 2016. Currently, almost 50% of the work on the track has been completed.
