Delhi-NCR is on the brink of a significant transportation transformation with the upcoming metro route that will directly connect Delhi through the Old Gurugram Metro project. This new route, spanning 28.5 kilometers and featuring 27 stations, marks a major milestone in the region’s infrastructure development. The project, inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 16, 2024, is a testament to the government’s commitment to enhancing urban connectivity and mobility.

The metro line will commence from the Millennium City Centre Metro Station, strategically passing through key sectors such as 9 and 9A, the bustling Dwarka Expressway, the vibrant locales of 4-7, the established residential areas of Palam Vihar, and the industrial hub of Udyog Vihar. The route will also serve important landmarks like Bakhtawar Chowk and Hero Honda Chowk before culminating at the prestigious Cyber City.

Expansion plans for the metro line include ambitious proposals by the Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC) and Gurgaon Metro Rail Limited. These plans involve investigating possible expansions along Galleria Road and utilizing Golf Course Road to link the Rapid Metro’s Sector 42-43 Station with the Millennium City Centre Station. Additionally, there are discussions regarding potential future stations along the route, with green spaces along GMDA’s route being considered for station locations.

A 5-kilometer-long geotechnical survey has provided valuable insights into the extension plan from Millennium City Center to Cyber City via Old Gurugram. Notably, 12.76 km of the 28.5-kilometer metro line will be surveyed by a private company hired by HMRTC, indicating a collaborative approach to infrastructure development.

With plans for road enlargement and maintenance works, including a half-meter divider in the center, the Old Gurugram Metro project is poised to revolutionize transportation in the region. The project’s completion is expected to enhance commuter convenience, reduce travel times, and improve connectivity across key locations in Delhi-NCR, ultimately driving economic growth and urban development.
