  • There was the initial proposal for connecting Pari Chowk in Greater Noida to the Jewar Airport.
  • 25 metro stations have already been proposed. The cost of the metro project has been estimated at approximately Rs. 5-7,000 crore.
  • DMRC will now be making the techno-feasibility and traffic viability reports for the metro link and this will cover the projections for flow of traffic coming from Noida, Haryana and New Delhi.
  • The Delhi-Jewar airport metro route will soon start operating in order to ensure smooth connectivity of Delhi-NCR to the Jewar International Airport.
  • The new airport metro railway network will enable passengers to directly travel to the airport terminal from Greater Noida.
