Haryana allocates Rs.900 crore for metro work in Gurgaon

The Haryana government Monday approved allocation of Rs.900 crore (Rs.9 billion) for metro rail-link project in the IT city of Gurgaon.

The metro-link will connect Delhi’s Sikanderpur station to national highway no.8 in Gurgaon. The total length of the line is 1.2 km on double track and 3.7 km on single track. There will be six stations on this stretch, an official said.

Gurgaon, a suburb of Delhi, is linked with the national capital through two major roads - the Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road (MG Road) and Delhi-Jaipur highway.

Another metro-rail link between Delhi and Gurgaon is under construction along the MG Road.
