Pune: MahaMetro has started constructing the first station of Pune Metro Rail project at Sant Tukaramnagar. “The work of digging pits for constructing the entry and exit points of the Metro station has begun.

Construction Of Piers Begins-

  • The construction of piers have begun for the elevated stretch of Pimpri-Dapodi section of the Pimpri-Swargate route.
  • The 61m-long foot overbridge (FOB) near Vallabhnagar ST bus depot would be a hindrance for the construction of the Sant Tukaramnagar Metro station.
  • “The FOB would be removed after the construction of the Metro station because we do not want to inconvenience people. The first level of the Metro station will work like an FOB for pedestrians to cross the highway,” MahaMetro official said.

Metro Till Nigdi-

  • On the PCMC’s letter to MahaMetro for preparing a DPR for extending the Metro route till Nigdi, he said, “We have received the letter. An agency will be appointed soon to prepare the DPR. A maximum of six months will be needed to prepare it.”
