Noida– Previously, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) drafted a project for the metro that will connect Noida International Airport to New Delhi consisting of 12 stations. The detailed corridor will start from Airport Express Line to Jewar in Noida. “The Uttar Pradesh government wants that there should be only six Metro stations on this project so that it takes only half an hour to reach from Jewar to New Delhi station,” stated an Uttar Pradesh government official.

As per the officials, DS Mishra, Uttar Pradesh’s chief secretary will soon have a high-level meeting with the concerned authority on 14th June in order to finalise the DPR. The proposed meeting will be attended by the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (Yeida), DMRC, the Ministry of civil aviation and Yamuna International Airport Private Limited to name a few regarding finalising the stations on the High-speed metro corridor project stated by the NIAL project. He further added that the meeting will also finalise the funding pattern. “In the earlier draft DPR, DMRC suggested 12 stations on the corridor that will begin from Jewar airport and end at New Delhi Metro station. But having more stations will reduce the speed on the corridor. Therefore, we have suggested six Metro stations on the corridor, so that commuters are able to commute quickly between the two airports,” stated by Arun Vir Singh, chief executive officer of NIAL and Yeida.
According to the signed agreement between Yamuna International Airport Private Limited, the Switzerland-based Zurich International AG, the Jewar airport concessionaire Company, the Uttar Pradesh government, Noida International Airport Limited and Yeida, will provide the high-multimodal connectivity from IGI airport to Jewar. The Noida airport is set to start its operations on 29th September 2024 as per the officials.
