New Delhi: The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved a metro connectivity project from HUDA City Centre to Cyber City with spur to Dwarka Expressway, Gurugram covering a distance of 28.50 km having 27 stations on the route.

The total completion cost of the project will be Rs 5,452 crore.

This will be a standard gauge line of 1435 mm (5 ft 8.5 inches).  The entire project will be elevated.

The spur from Basai village has been provided for connectivity to the depot.

The project is proposed to be completed in four years from the date of sanction of the Project and is to be implemented by Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation Limited (HMRTC) which will be set up as a 50:50 Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) of the Government of India and Government of Haryana after sanction order is issued.

Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal said in a press conference that the project cost will be shared by the Centre and the state besides an international development assistance loan.

As of now, there is no metro line in Old Gurugram, but there are plans to establish one that would connect New Gurugram with Old Gurugram.

The 27 stations in this line are: HUDA City Centre – Sector 45 – Cyber Park – Sector 47 – Subhash Chowk – Sector 48 – Sector 72A – Hero Honda Chowk – Udyog Vihar Phase 6 – Sector 10 – Sector 37 – Basai Village – Sector 9 – Sector 7 – Sector 4 – Sector 5 – Ashok Vihar – Sector 3 – Bajghera Road – Palam Vihar Extension – Palam Vihar – Sector 23A – Sector 22 – Udyog Vihar Phase 4 – Udyog Vihar Phase 5 – Cyber City
