The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) is planning to introduce a Light Rail Transit (LRT) system from Noida International Airport to Pari Chowk. To explore the feasibility of this project, YEIDA has assigned two companies to prepare a feasibility report. Dr. Arunveer Singh, CEO of YEIDA, mentioned that multi-modal connectivity work is already underway in the Yamuna City area up to the airport.


Light Train Details:

  • Construction and Speed: Light trains are designed with special wheels and bodies that can be constructed at a lower cost. These trains, manufactured by around 100 companies worldwide, can operate at speeds of up to 80 kilometers per hour.


  • Feasibility Report: YEIDA has tasked Siemens and IPRCL with preparing the feasibility report for the light train. These companies are expected to present their reports by June 30.

Background: Initially, there were plans to introduce pod taxis in the industrial sectors of Yamuna City. However, with the approval of the Rapid Rail proposal, the pod taxi project was canceled. The focus has now shifted to implementing the Light Rail Transit system along the Yamuna Expressway.

Key Takeaways:

  • Project: Introduction of Light Rail Transit (LRT) from Noida International Airport to Pari Chowk along the Yamuna Expressway.


  • Companies Involved: Siemens and IPRCL are responsible for preparing the feasibility report.
  • Report Deadline: The feasibility report is expected by June 30.
