PM Narendra Modi lays foundation stone of ₹5,450 crore Gurugram Metro Rail Project

Gurugram, India (Metro Rail Today): In a significant stride towards transforming Gurugram's urban transport landscape, Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the Gurugram Metro Rail Project on February 16, 2024. With an estimated cost of Rs 5,450 crores, this ambitious venture is poised to redefine the city's mass rapid urban transport systems.

The Gurugram Metro Rail Project is designed to cover a substantial stretch of 28.5 kilometers, linking the Millennium City Centre to Udyog Vihar Phase-5. Notably, it will seamlessly integrate with the existing metro network of Rapid Metro Rail Gurugram at Moulsari Avenue station near Cyber City, enhancing connectivity and convenience for commuters. Additionally, a crucial spur at Dwarka Expressway is set to further augment the project's reach and impact.

According to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), this initiative aligns with PM Modi's vision to provide citizens with world-class, environment-friendly mass rapid urban transport systems. Emphasizing the project's significance, the PMO stated, "The project is an important step towards realizing the Prime Minister’s vision."

The Gurugram Metro rail project is not merely a physical infrastructure development; it signifies a commitment to sustainability and efficiency in urban transportation. Boasting nearly 27 elevated stations, this metro network will be a lifeline for the city's denizens, offering seamless connectivity to key areas.

The proposed stations along the route include Huda City Centre, Sector 45, Cyber Park, Sector 47, Subhash Chowk, Sector 48, 72 A, Hero Honda Chowk, Udyog Vihar 6, Sector 10, 37, Basai, Sector 9, 7, 4, and 5, Ashok Vihar, Sector 3, Bajghera road, Palam Vihar Extension, Palam Vihar, Sector 23 A, 22, Udyog Vihar 4, Udyog Vihar 5, and Cyber City. This comprehensive network aims to cater to the diverse travel needs of Gurugram's residents and workforce.

The roots of the Gurugram Metro Rail Project can be traced back to the visionary announcement made by Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar during the Budget presentation for the fiscal year 2023-24 in the Assembly. This strategic move signaled the state's commitment to modernizing its infrastructure and enhancing the overall quality of life for its citizens.

As the foundation stone is laid, the Gurugram Metro Rail Project emerges as a symbol of progress and foresight. It not only addresses the immediate need for efficient urban transportation but also lays the groundwork for a sustainable, interconnected future. The strategic alignment with the Prime Minister's vision reinforces the project's national significance, making it a pivotal milestone in the development journey of Gurugram.

The Gurugram Metro Rail Project stands as a testament to the government's commitment to providing world-class infrastructure that is both eco-friendly and efficient. As the city gears up for this transformative journey, the metro project is set to redefine the urban transport experience for generations to come.
