YEIDA unveils ₹14,000-cr metro line linking IGIA & Jewar Airport

Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA)
Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) has planned to directly connect Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) with Jewar Airport in Gautam Budh Nagar of UP at an investment of ₹14,000 crore. Once the Jewar Airport is ready, it will have a direct link to the Delhi Airport via Metro and the passengers will be able to travel from one airport to the other in two-and-a-half hours whereas those travelling from South Delhi to Jewar will cover the distance in one-and-a-half hours. RITES Limited submitted three different proposals to link Jewar Airport with the IGIA last year. The plan selected by YEIDA involves three stages including the construction of a 20-km line between Aerocity and Tughlakabad, which is being undertaken by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC); a 15-km proposed extension from Tughlakabad to Noida Sector 142 on the Aqua line; and finally, a 35.6-km line between Knowledge Park and Jewar Airport. Passengers will have to change twice on this 82-km journey, at Noida Sector 142 and Knowledge Park II. The line from Aerocity to Tughlakabad is a part of DMRC's Phase IV while construction of the other two corridors, currently handled by YEIDA, is estimated at ₹8,248 crore. The last and longest leg of the journey that starts at Knowledge Park II and ends at Jewar Airport is estimated to cost ₹5,708 crore and will have 25 stops. Arunvir Singh, CEO of YEIDA, informed that the upcoming Metro line will run from Aerocity, pass Tughlakabad, Noida and Greater Noida, and then head to Jewar. The airport and the Metro links are expected to be ready by 2024.
