Ghaziabad metro project to speed up after budget allocation

Ghaziabad metro project to speed up after budget allocation

The Yogi Aditya Nath government has set aside substantial amounts for the metro project and the regional rapid transport system in Ghaziabad, a move aimed at boosting connectivity in NCR. In the budget tabled in the Assembly on Friday, Rs 500 crore has been earmarked for various metro projects in the state, including the under-construction Dilshad Garden- New Bus Stand corridor in Ghaziabad that has been progressing at a snail’s pace apparently because of delay in release of funds by various stakeholders. A sum of Rs 250 crore has also been allocated for the construction of the Delhi-Ghaziabad- Meerut RRTS corridor, which is being undertaken by the NCR Transport Corporation (NCRTC).
