Gurgaon Rapid Metro reworks their second phase plan
Gurgaon's Rapid Metro has been a major respite for people residing in Gurgaon, who no longer travel in those over populated buses and shared autos, rather preferring the Rapid metro, which provide them a comfortable ride to their desired locations. The second phase of Rapid Metro, which the authorities are claiming to meet its deadline of mid-2016 is expected to please Gurgaoniites.

But, there are some changes in the original plan as they are ready to remove one of the six station from the planned six stations. The positive thing about the second phase is that the authorities are not going to delay their deadline. All permissions have been primarily attained including land – a step in the right direction. It is the office goers in and around Gurgaon who has benefitted the most from Rapid Metro, which was launched in November 2013.

''An underpass and a flyover are supposed to be built here by HUDA and DLF as part of sector road upgrade. Taking that into account, we had to rework the plan, which meant doing away with the station. However, the route length remains the same," said Sanjiv Rai, CEO, Rapid Metro, reported The Times of India.

The authorities are confident that they are going to meet their deadline of mid-2016, as the civil work for the second phase seems to be well underway. 20 percent seems to be already completed. But, with India known for failing to meet its deadline, will the authorities deliver upon their promise?
