New metro line will be passing through Gurugram connecting Jhajjar campus of AIIMS and Delhi. It will start from Dwarka Sector 21 and pass through Dwarka Expressway and reach Badsa in Jhajjar. The metro connectivity will help in ease movement of patients to National Cancer Institute (NCI). Inspection has been done to identify the route alignment of new project.
Survey on traffic and technical feasibility will be done before detailed project report (DPR) with the help of Haryana govt. and DMRC. Cost is expected to be shared by both State and Union govts.
The inspection team was headed by
Chandrashekhar Khare(HSVP administrator)
Nadim Akhtar(Advisor, HMRTC Ltd)
Chief Town Planner (DTCP)
Aniruddh Jain(DMRC Advisor)
R S Batth(Gurugram DTP)
Satbir Dahiya (Superintendent engineer, HSPC)
Anil Kumar (Executive Engineer, HSPC)
The project is at concept stage and first field inspection started early morning on 23 Km long route from Dwarka Sector 21 metro station to Badsa in Jhajjar via Dwarka Expressway and Dhankot for land and other obstacles.
As said by Gurugram DTP and Batth, obstacles and challenges will be identified at a later stage also the route will cross Gurugram Water Canal at some place whether the route is on ground or above road.
This project in gurugram will definitely help Dwarka Expressway residents as there are many upcoming projects and there are enough green belts and land for the route. But Delhi may face hurdles along with Jhajjar road as neither of them have green belts.
The metro route was proposed by CM Manohar Lal Khattar in the presence of PM Modi while inaugurating the Bahadurgarh metro route on June,2018. The foundation stone for the 710-bed AIIMS Jhajjar was laid by previous minister Manmohan Singh in January,2014 . In December 2018, the hospital’s OPD facility was inaugurated and hospital is expected to be fully operational by December 2020.
