The Line 4, or Noapara Barasat Line of the Kolkata Metro. It is a 18.50 km long metro from Noapara to Barasat is under construction, It is being built by RVNL. It is a fully elevated corridor. It will have an interchange station at the airport with line 6 of the Kolkata metro. The future of the project beyond airport is still in darkness due to land problem. After Kolkata airport the metro route will pass through a land owned by a private company. When the project was sanctioned, then railway minister Mamtaa Banerjee vested this land for metro project but the company moved to High court against it making the future of the project beyond airport in darkness. Till now so solution came. The construction company L&T was given the tender for construction but due to no hope of getting rid of land problem beyond airport, they walked out from the construction. In Barasat, heavy traffic jam is a burning problem for the citizens. Metro project would have given them a breath. But still now no hope arised to the citizens.

Progress of Dum Dum Cantonment metro station

An amount of Rs 127 crore contract to build this station along with a mostly at-grade 2.16 km section from the Baghjola Canal to the existing ramp of the Airport Circular Railway track was awarded to Senbo Engineering all the way back in June 2011. Since then, the station’s civil structure has been built, but work for the at-grade track section has not been able to commence due to land acquisition issues on a horrific scale along the line’s proposed alignment.

But recently the rehabilitation work has started and as per news the work will begin shortly.
