Noida-Gr Noida metro to be thrown open by April 2018
The much awaited Noida-Greater Noida Metro will be thrown open to the commuters by April 2018.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will handle the operations of the 29.7km metro corridor for five years, after completing the construction.

The security management of this metro corridor will be taken up by the PAC force.

The figures and the dates were announced by the Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) officials during a meeting, held in Lucknow. The trials on the corridor will be conducted in December 2017, and it is estimated to have a ridership of 1 to 1.5 lakh a day. All stations of this corridor will have platform screen doors.

Noida-Greater Noida corridor will be linked with the upcoming Noida City Centre to Sector 62 corridor. A foot overbridge will connect Sector 52 Metro Station on the Noida City Centre to Sector 62 corridor with Sector 71 Metro Station on the Noida-Greater Noida corridor.

Apart from this, a mobile application for the city bus service, which is already operational, was also inaugurated by the Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary, Rahul Bhatnagar.

The app is focused on easing the journey of commuters in the city bus and is designed to provide the details of the bus stop and to track the arrival of the next bus.

The NMRC also introduced 'one city one card' in their metro projects in which a commuter can use a single metro card for travelling in the metro and city bus as well as in parking and buying any retail item from the metro station.

Soon the board is also looking forward to introducing e-rickshaws at the metro stations at which the payments can be made through the same metro cards.

In May 2016, the project has already been recorded in the Limca Book of Records for putting up 200 U-shaped girders on the entire corridor in a single month. The award certificate was also handed over to the then managing director of the DMRC.
