Pune: Work on the Civil Court-Ramwadi stretch of the Pune Metro project will likely begin before the arrival of monsoon. This section is a part of the Vanaz-Ramwadi Metro line. MahaMetro will soon appoint an agency to take up the civil work for this elevated stretch. MahaMetro officials said, tenders have been floated and a firm will be hired in a month.
Work will include design & construction of a 6.77km viaduct and construction of two others — a 0.43km section near Sangam bridge and a 0.51km line near Bund Garden.
The alignment of the route has been finalized, officials said.
MahaMetro has introduced some changes in the route alignment near Pune railway station.
The preliminary plan had the route aligned from Mangalwar Peth via the station’s main entrance towards Bund Garden.
It has since been changed to go via RTO, Raja Bahadur Mill Road and the station’s rear entrance.
This way, passengers will get easy access to Metro service from Pune station, MahaMetro said.
