Homebuyers along Dwarka Expressway are planning to give a representation to the Gurgaon Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) demanding metro connectivity along the Northern Peripheral Road (NPR). They spoke to GMDA chief executive officer (CEO) Anand Mohan Sharan and are likely to meet him next week in this regard.
“A week ago, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has submitted a metro connectivity route plan between Delhi and Gurgaon via old Gurgaon which does not cater to thousands of homebuyers along Dwarka Expressway in sectors 81 to 115. If the same is executed by the DMRC, it will be a big disappointment for us. That is why we have decided to meet the CEO and apprise him our concern in advance,” said Prakhar Sahay, member of Dwarka Expressway welfare association.
He said the DMRC’s proposed route caters to Bijwasan, Palam Vihar, Sector 37, Hero Honda Chowk, Sector 47, 45 and Huda City Centre. The buyers are worried as they have booked homes in new projects being developed along the NPR and the developers assured them of metro connectivity.
NPR is 18km road between Dwarka and Kherki Daula on NH-8 catering to 35 residential and commercial sectors.
Gaurav Prakash, another homebuyer and member of the association, said, “We want the Haryana government to advise the DMRC to plan a metro route along the NPR starting from Sector 110-111 near Bijwasan and New Palam Vihar and it should go via sectors 102, 103, 100, 99, 88, 84 and 81 near NH-8.”
