GDA Approves Delhi Metro Blue Line’s Extn to Sahibabad & Mohan Ngr

2020 Update: Both lines’ Detailed Project Reports were submitted to the Uttar Pradesh government for its approval in January 2020.

Original Post:
Earlier this month on February 5, the Ghaziabad Development Authority approved the detailed project report (DPR) for a 10.17 km elevated extension of both branches of the Delhi Metro’s Blue Line (Line-3 & Line-4) to connect up with Sahibabad and Mohan Nagar. The DPR estimates the project to cost Rs. 3711 crore, and was approved by GDA’s board & other district level government agencies without any changes or recommendations.

Back in April 2016, GDA’s board had approved & sanctioned Rs 1.09 crore to appoint the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation for preparing the project’s DPR. The report was submitted by DMRC on February 1 with the following specifications –

Line-3 Extension: Noida Sector-62 (Electronics City) to Sahibabad
• Length: 5.11 km
• Stations:  Vaibhav Khand, Indirapuram, Shakti Khand, Vasundhra Sector 5, Sahibabad (interchange)
• Estimated Cost: Rs 1926 crores
• Route: This extension of Line-3 will start from the under construction Electronic City Station, cross over NH-24 and head north along Mohan Nagar Link Road (CISF Road). Along the way, the line will cross above the Hindon Elevated Road at Kanawani Bridge in Indirapuram.

Line-4 Extension: Vaishali to Mohan Nagar
• Length: 5.06 km
• Stations: Prahlad Garhi, Vasundhara Sector 14, Sahibabad (interchange), Mohan Nagar (new station building will connect with Red Line’s Mohan Nagar Station)
• Estimated Cost: Rs 1785 crore
• Route: This extension of Line-4 will start from the existing Vaishali Station, head east on Madan Mohan Malviya Marg and connect up with the Red Line’s under construction Mohan Nagar Station.

Blue Line’s extensions to Sahibabad & Mohan Nagar

With GDA’s approval now accorded, the DPR will now be sent to the state government for its approval where the funding pattern & source of funds will be decided. Whenever that key approval is received, both these extensions will take the 108.79 km Phase 4 project’s approved length to 118.96 km.

With the 92 km Delhi – Ghaziabad – Meerut RRTS line also passing through that general area, it’ll be interesting to see how the stations of both systems are connected with one another. Perhaps the RRTS’ Sahibabad Station will connect up to the metro’s planned Sahibabad Interchange Station? We’ll have to wait and watch.

    It would have been a lot better if: (All lines would have been more linear)
    1. Blue line (noida section) extended only till Sector 71
    2. Blue line (vaishali section) extended till Mohan Nagar
    3. Aqua line extended till Sahibabad (maybe even till Rajendra Nagar on red line)

    Future Note: Blue line line noida section could be further extended to Ghaziabad railway station and maybe govindpuram too.

    The Sahibabad RRTS station is going to be far away from the sahibabad station of blue line.

    Will both the noida and vaishali extension go to mohan nagar (just like they both go to dwarka after merging at yamuna bank), or only the vaishali extension will go to mohan nagar and noida extension will terminate at sahibabad and people will have to change train there?

      Only the vaishali line extension will go forward to mohannagar. The noida line will be open to future projects.

        I hope both extensions go to mohan nagar..it will be good for people of ghaziabad as they would not have to change train at sahibabad to go to noida. However I dont understand what future extension will be done for noida line…its already extended a lot. How far It will go from delhi. Its delhi metro after all.

          It wont be feasible. You have a lot of space at yamuna bank. This is not the case here. And the noida extension may be extended beyond sahibBad into interior as that area is untouched. Red line extension is linear, so the noida line may be extended.

            The same thing happens at ashok park main station on green line also. That station is also as big as yamuna bank station.

    • TMRG says:

      No details on that have been revealed. Hopefully they don’t make a T structure (like Indelok) with no room for a future extension.
