If the efforts of the government rose, now Neo Metro will run between Dehradun, Rishikesh and Haridwar. The proposed metro project in Uttarakhand is also within the periphery of Neo Metro, a three-coach running rubber tire launched by the central government for cities with less than 20 lakh population. Now steps are being taken accordingly. This information was given in the review meeting held in the Assembly on Friday under the chairmanship of Urban Development and Housing Minister Banshidhar Bhagat. Cabinet Minister Bhagat instructed the officials of the Metro Corporation to complete the formalities at various levels expeditiously, so that the construction work of the project can start from this year.
According to Cabinet Minister Bhagat, in the meeting, the officials of the Metro Corporation informed that the metropolitan area of the works of the project has been decided. The DPR (Detailed Project Report) has been prepared along with preparing a detailed traffic plan. It will be approved soon in the board meeting chaired by the Chief Secretary. Then the DPR will be sent to the center by the government. He said that the Central Government has approved the concept of Neo Metro Rail for medium cities. The project of Uttarakhand also falls within this periphery.
The cost of this metro is 40% less than the cost of construction of traditional metro. Also, it does not require a large space for the station premises. There will be no problem in passing the map. The Minister of Urban Development and Housing said that in the case of development authorities, the government has restored the situation before 2016.
