Pune: The MahaMetro has installed the first girder on two pillars at Kharalwadi. The foot over bridge (FOB) near Kharalwadi on the Pune-Mumbai highway will not be demolished as MahaMetro will construct another elevation to the pillars. However, the 61m long FoB near the Vallabhnagar ST bus depot will be dismantled to enable the construction of the Metro station, which will be completed by December 2019 at a cost of Rs 50 crore.
- Currently, pits are being dug along the highway.
- MahaMetro Managing Director Brijesh Dixit said,”We will build another bridge near the station, which will replace the existing bridge.”
- Girish Bapat, Guardian minister had laid the foundation stone for this station on January 18.
- Bapat said, the first phase will be completed by the 2020-end, and the Metro rail will be extended to Nigdi in the phase-II.
