Noida, India: The Noida Authority has given bids for the construction of a skywalk connecting Aqua Lines Sector 51 and Blue Lines Sector 52.Currently, the two stations are connected by a 300-meter walkway.The Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) operates free e-rickshaw services between the two stations, but encroachers often hamper navigation.In March this year, NMRC launched a tender for the construction of a foot overbridge (FOB) between the two stations on a build-operate-transfer (BOT) basis.

A skywalk is most often an enclosed aerial walkway connecting two buildings, while an FOB has stairs as well.We're considering ways to expand the project.The deadline for submitting the application is September 26, and the tenders will be opened the next day.The skywalk will be 420 meters long and 5 meters wide, creating an L, as the adjacent plot has been allocated to a private company for commercial purposes.

It was only on September 19 that the Aqua Line, which connects Sector 51 with the Depot station, saw its highest volume of passengers, 45,087, which was the highest level since its construction began.Around 16,000 commuters use its Sector 51 station every day, while the population of Sector 52 station is estimated at 44,000.The proposal to develop the skywalk was endorsed by commuters on Thursday.During peak hours, a lot of commuters travel from one station to another, and the station becomes overcrowded.
