    Construction work for the sixth corridor under the fourth phase of the Delhi Metro expansion will commence soon. The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has approved a grant of ₹1,000 crore for this project. The extension of the metro to Kundli will provide significant convenience for daily commuters and students traveling between Sonipat and Delhi.

    First Corridor Connecting Delhi, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh

    This metro extension will be the first corridor connecting central Delhi with Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. With government approval, Sonipat will become the fourth area in Haryana to get a metro extension, following Gurgaon, Faridabad, and Bahadurgarh. Currently, the metro operates up to Rithala on the Red Line. The new route will extend from Rithala to Narela and then lay a line from Kundli to Nathupur.
