Noida: Work on the proposed Metro route from City Centre to Sector -62 in Noida is expected to start in the month of November. Decision in this regard would be taken in the board meeting slated for the next month. It is said that the work was to get off in October.
However, work may get off to a start in the month of November due to the organizing of Formula One Airtel Indian Grand Prix race.
Remarkably, the length of proposed metro route from the City Centre to Sector-62 is 6,675 meter.
This Metro route which stretches from City centre to Sector-62 Noida would have model town as its last station and it would be called Electronic City Station.
Moreover, the railway track in the city would be elevated one. There would be six stations on the proposed metro route after its City Centre station.
An expense of approximately Rs 1805 crore is expected to be incurred on it. As per the Detailed Project Report (DPR), the entire route will be an elevated one.
At first the Metro track was to be modeled on Central Verge. However, it was diverted to Green Belt. As a deep sewer line falls in the metro track, the track has to be diverted to sector-63 instead of central verge.
U-turns to be made at three and four intersections
The route in which the proposed metro would be going is road no-6 (Model Town to Sector-71) and consists of three and four intersections. To streamline the traffic flow in these seven places, U-turns are to be made. As a result of which there would not be traffic chaos and at the same time the metro construction work would go rapidly.
Awareness campaign to start
An awareness campaign will be conducted before the start of metro work. People will be told as to where the diversions have been made on this road due to the construction of the metro work. At what time the maximum crowd will be there at which area and what other roads people can take will be informed during this awareness campaign.
More than three lakh and fifty thousand vehicles cross everyday
The study conducted by the IIT, Roorkee, revealed that more than 3 lakh 50 thousand vehicles cross the road no- 6 (From Model Town to Sector- 71) everyday. This includes Heavy Motor Vehicles (HMVs), Light Motor Vehicles (LMVS) along with cars. For a smooth traffic, route diversions will be made along with deployment of police personnel in the concerned area.
Extra Home guards to be deployed at divergent roads
As an alternative arrangement, several underpasses have been made to tackle the situation. For a free flow of traffic, extra home guards will be deployed at several routes to avert any kind of crowd mess.
