Haryana Govt. Approves Delhi Metro’s 4.86 km Extn to Kundli

Delhi Metro’s 103.93 km Phase 4 project just got a little bigger!

Yesterday, the Haryana government’s cabinet led by the Chief Minister approved Delhi Metro’s 4.86 km extension into Kundli in Sonepat District at an estimated cost of Rs. 1210.25 crores. This elevated extension of the Red Line from Narela will feature 3 new stations at Narela Sector A5, Kundli and Nathupur.

The line’s Detailed Project Report (DPR) was prepared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) who submitted it to the state government in early 2017. The section’s construction will be financed by the state and central governments at a ratio of 80:20, with the state government contributing to Rs 968.20 crore as its share. The state funds will be contributed by the Haryana Infrastructure Development Board (50%), Haryana Urban Development Authority (20%), State Government (18%) and the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (12%).

The state government & DMRC have not released this section’s alignment, but it will most likely look similar to this:

Prior to this, the Red Line in Phase 4 was going to be extended by 21.73 km between Rithala – Bawana – Narela featuring 16 stations. With this development, the line will now be extended by 26.59 km through 19 stations. The Phase 4 project has now grown from 103.93 km to 108.79 km, and in the coming years, the approval of more extensions into Haryana (Gurgaon, possibly Faridabad) and Uttar Pradesh (Ghaziabad) are expected to make the project around 150 km long with the Delhi Metro’s network breaching the 500 km mark.

    Any proposal to extend the yellow line up north (from azadpur to narela)?? heavy flow of traffic from azadpur towards narela/kundli on the GT road..metro line will be needed no time soon to cater to the rush on this section of GT road..

    Any update on southern extension of airport express / blue line into gurgaon via bijwasan & maruti udyog?… approval for this extension is also pending for quite some time and again it urgently needed. Every morning one can see a huge exodus of cars plying from Dwarka towards gurgaon which can be catered by extending the metro line south of Dwarka sec-21..

      1) No progress on Azadpur – Narela. Since it’s within Delhi’s borders, I don’t see it getting approved in this phase.
      2) No progress on that either. Lots of politician chatter and media noises, but no approval yet.

      Hi, there’s nothing significant to cover and I don’t want to duplicate info which is so easily available on DMRC’s site. I’ve posted everything I know here as well as on Twitter 🙂

    I doubt the local people take that roundabout way. DMRC should extend the yellow line to there.

    Now this is some effective step by haryana government. And look at mine up government. Up government still hasnt been able to release funds completely for the only extension of metro in up. Haryana’s responsible attitude has led to proliferation of metro till faridabad, gurgaon, bahadurgarh and now kundli. This is really a shame for up govt

    Hello TMRG!

    Has Haryana Govt. made any decision yet on connecting Gurgaon with Dwarka? I am hearing about it since at least 3 year. Guess it would not be a part of Phase 4.

    Do you have any updates?

      Hi, lots of talks and media announcements, but no official approval from its cabinet yet. Hoping it comes through soon.
