Pune: The MahaMetro is expected to commence work on the ‘Multi-Modal Transport Hub’ at Swargate soon. The transport hub will integrate all the public transport services — Metro rail, PMPML (Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited) and MSRTC (Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation) buses, auto rickshaws etc. – under one roof.
- “Work on the multi-modal transport hub will begin at Swargate in the next 15 days. The tender process for the project has already begun,” Dr. Brijesh Dixit, Managing Director, MahaMetro, said at a press conference.
- He said,“We already have possession of 7.5 acres of land which was under the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC). The area under the Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd (PMPML) and the area which is possessed by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation Limited (MSRDC) will also be acquired shortly.”
- Dixit added, we are looking for possible locations to temporarily relocate PMPML and MSRDC depots for the duration of the project.
- “Through the project, we will bring all the transport services under one roof and establish a world class hub which will mitigate the traffic in the area,” Dixit said.
