Commuters waiting for metro connectivity to Greater Noida will not be able to avail of the services before October this year.
Trial runs on the 29.7 km-long Aqua Line, connecting Noida and Greater Noida will take two more months to be completed, said officials of Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC). The line which was expected to be made operational in the first half of 2018, has been delayed owing to certain technical issues.
“One of the reasons for the delay was due to the delayed supply of electricity. However, thorough trial runs are
on now. We are targeting to complete the process in another two months,” said NMRC Managing Director Alok Tandon.
“After the trials are completed, we will invite the Commissioner of Rail Safety [CMRS] for inspection. Once we get the requisite approval, the line will be made operational,” said Mr. Tandon.
A senior official of the NMRC said: “We are not considering this as a delay as the initial plan was modified with the addition of new stations. Currently, we are running trials on the entire 30 km stretch as we intend to open the line in one go and not in phases.”
The Noida-Greater Noida Line corridor is a part of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC)’s Phase III network.
The latest progress report of the DMRC stated that the “cumulative physical progress of civil works up to June 2018” has been 86.6%. The line is targeted for completion by December 2018, it added.
Once the over 6 km stretch from Noida City Centre to Noida Electronic City (Blue Line) is completed, the commuters can use the interchange facility at Noida Sector 52 station and get connected to the Aqua Line.
With an interchange station at Sector 52, the Aqua Line will have a total of 21 stations, connecting Greater Noida to the Delhi Metro network.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
