Rapid Metro's trial run flagged off by Hooda

Haryana is seriously considering running pod taxi in big cities and in Gurgaon, including the old city.

Hooda was speaking after flagging off the trial run of Rapid Metro, an intra-city metro service, in Gurgaon which is first of its kind project on Public-Private- Partnership (PPP) model in the country and he also laid foundation stone of it's extension.

The Rapid Metro Gurgaon Corridor is being constructed at a cost of Rs 1,088 crore and it is 5.1 kilometre long. It has six stations Sikanderpur, phase-2, Belvedere Towers, Cyber city, Moulsari Avenue and Cyber Green Infinity Towers.

The corridor is expected to be completed by March, 2013 on which metro trains will run from 5 a.M. Onwards till midnight, with an interval of 4 to 5 minutes.

The fare of Rapid Metro will be similar to that of Metro.

Hooda also laid foundation of Rapid Metro Extension project which will be completed by July, 2015 at an estimated cost of Rs 2,100 crore and it would also have six stations, officials said.

The route length is about seven kilometers and it will cover the area of the city lying towards Sector 56 from Sikanderpur Metro Station.

The chief minister said Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) is partner in construction of Rapid Metro Corridor in Gurgaon since it has provided right of way for this Corridor.

He said HUDA will not be a partner in sharing the profits from this Rapid Metro and only IL & FS Company would earn profits as it has borne the finances on the project.

Urbanisation is spreading speedily in Haryana and while on one hand the people get its benefits, on the other it has problems too, local transport being one of them, Hooda said.

Rapid Metro would be able to address to the need of local residents, he said.

State government first connected Gurgaon with Delhi by Metro and later on Metro link were sanctioned from Delhi to Faridabad and from Delhi to Bahadurgarh, he said.

Now, the Haryana government was making efforts to take Metro towards Kundli in district Sonipat, he said. MORE
