The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) planned to extend metro connectivity to Haryana with Ghaziabad in an effort to improve connectivity for residents of Delhi-NCR. Better metro connectivity will be made possible in Haryana, Delhi, and UP as a result.
The intended Rithala-Narela corridor is expected to further expand and eventually reach Kundli in Haryana. Notably, it will be the first route of the Delhi Metro that runs through Delhi to connect Haryana and Ghaziabad.
The expansion of the Shaheed Sthal-Rithala route is also planned. Following the Violet Line (Faridabad) and Green Line (Bahadurgarh) extensions, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has announced that the Yellow Line (Gurugram) extension will be the network’s fourth expansion into Haryana.
With the Pink Line currently connecting Noida’s Botanical Garden to Haryana, this project seeks to expand the Shaheed Sthal-Rithala Red Line route, uniting Haryana and Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad through Delhi.
The first phase will involve building stations intended for four-coach trains to meet urgent traffic demands before being modified to accommodate eight-coach trains. The line, which covers a distance of 27.319 km and has 22 stations, will have 26.339 km of elevated track and around 0.89 km of grade-level track, with 21 elevated stations and one at grade.
The proposed stations on this route include Rithala, Rohini Sectors 25, 26, 31, 32, 36, Barwala, Rohini Sectors 35, 34, Bawana Industrial Area 1 Sectors 3, 4, Bawana Industrial Area 1 Sectors 1, 2, Bawana JJ Colony, Sanoth, New Sanoth, Depot Station, Bhorgarh Village, Anaj Mandi Narela, Narela DDA Sports Complex, Narela Sectors 5, Kundli, and Nathupur.
