A special purpose vehicle (SPV) called Gurugram Metro Rail Corporation (GMRC) would be established to handle the development of the metro project in the city. Aside from representatives from the Centre, the organization will have its own board members.
State government sources claim that the proposed metro extension plan is receiving financial support from the federal government, and that in order to possess equity in the project, it was necessary to establish a new, independent organization with its own accounting records.
The metro rail project in the city will be built by a different organization because it was not able to be carried out by HMRTC, which is in charge of carrying out metro projects throughout the state. The Gurgaon metro rail project would only be funded by the Government of Haryana and India, as a result of the establishment of the GMRC, the official stated.
Union Cabinet Authorized The GMRC Line From Huda City Center To Cyber City
The Union cabinet authorized metro connection in June of this year, which will cost around Rs 5,452 crore and span over 28 kilometers with 27 stations from HUDA City Center to Cyber City. But building hasn’t even started yet. The officials claim that because the design has not been finalized, there has been a delay.
Bids are being accepted for detailed design consultants by the HMRTC. Four years from the date of approval is when the project is projected to be completed, and it should smoothly connect the old and new Gurgaon.
Phase 6 of Udyog Vihar, Sector 10, Sector 37, Basai, Sector 9, Sector 7, Sector 4, Sector 5, Ashok Vihar, Sector 3, Krishna Chowk, Palam Vihar Extension, Palam Vihar, Sector 23 A, Sector 22, Udyog Vihar Phase 4, and CyberHub are among the sectors that will be included in the metro route.
According to estimates, there will be around 5,34,000 riders per day in 2026 and 7,26,000 by 2031. Furthermore, by 2051, the figure is projected to increase to between 8,81,000 and 10,70,000. The average speed of the Gurgaon metro will be 34 kmph, compared to its intended speed of 80 kmph.
