Sky-Walk ToConnect Delhi, Noida Metros At Sectors 71-52 Junction


Noida: Instead of developing an interchange metro station connecting two different routes at Sector-71 in the city, the Noida Metro Rail Corporation is planning to build up a sky-walk, an overhead pathway, for commuters of Noida's new Sectors and Greater Noida promising seamless services.

Though, the overhead pathway will solve the problem up to some extent but it won't be as convenient as commuters enjoy at an interchange metro station.

At Sector-71 in Noida, there is a gap of half kilometer between two metro stations on two different routes, one is Aqua line connecting Greater Noida with Noida and the other is Blue line connecting Noida with New Delhi.

Starting a ride from Greater Noida for Rajiv Chowk metro station in New Delhi via these routes, commuters will require to get down at metro station Sector-71 on Aqua line of NMRC. Further, they need to walk down the distance to reach to Sector-52 metro station of DMRC on the Blue line.

Walking down to DMRC station with luggage is not the only issue that will cause problems for commuters. But there are others requiring queuing up for buying tickets as NMRC and DMRC are yet not finalised on modality of giving commuters a common smart card or tokens allowing Metro passengers to finish the ride between these cities.

People suggest that NMRC may not have ridership gain from DMRC as commuters will get down at Botanical Garden Metro Station, which is four station ago from Sector-52, will catch buses being operated by UP State  Road Transport between Noida and Greater Noida.

According to data shared by UP road transport, ridership to their buses are 50, 000 per day from Botanical Garden to Greater Noida. They will continue with them even the Aqua line is thrown open.

Though, commuters traveling by cars to Greater Noida from eastern District of New Delhi might be planning to switch to modern mode of transport, which is Metro one, but inconveniences that are to be caused due to gap  might deter to their enthusiasm of giving up personal cars as mode of transportation. It is because their travel time will increase by several minutes.
