In order to boost metro connectivity inside the pockets of Greater Noida, the Noida and Greater Noida authority has prepared a fresh common proposal to bring a new metro line from Mahamaya Flyover to zero point of the Yamuna expressway.
A final proposal has been prepared and sent to the Uttar Pradesh government and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for the approval.
According to the sources, the proposed metro line will act as a secondary line for residents of the twin cities.
“We are waiting to receive the final approval from the state government and DMRC. Once we will get a final nod on the proposal, we will start working on the project,” said an official from Noida Authority requesting anonymity.

The Detailed Project Report (DPR) will be finalised once the government will share its viewpoint on the matter.
“In coming years, the face of Noida and Greater Noida will change completely. Commuting in twin cities will be no longer a herculean task,” added the official.
The UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav has cleared two major routes – a 29.7 km line from Noida City Centre (Sector 32) to Greater Noida, and another 6.7-km stretch from City Centre to Sector 62 in October. Both the projects are expected to be completed by 2017.
