BHOPAL (Metro Rail News): Construction work is moving at rapid pace for Bhopal Metro despite the challenges imposed by the Covid-19 second wave and the resultant lockdowns in the city. 

At present, construction work is underway for the elevated viaduct from AIIMS to Subhash Nagar for a stretch of 6.22 km which is a part of Purple Line of Length 14.99 km from Karond Circle to AIIMS under Phase-1.

About 50% work is completed on this stretch as 122 pillars and 36 girders have been laid down so far in last 30 months. Work on this first section under Package-01 was awarded to Dilip Buildcon Ltd. in October 2018 by Madhya Pradesh Metro Rail Co Limited (MPMRCL) for a contract price of INR 247.06 Crores with completion period of 27 months.

On this section, eight elevated stations will be constructed for which tenders were invited on 31st March this year with an estimated cost of INR 421 Crores and completion period of 847 days. These stations are AIIMS, Alkapuri, Habibganj Naka, Habibganj, M.P Nagar Zone-1, DB City Mall, Kendriya Vidyalaya and Subhash Nagar. This contract package will be funded by European Investment Bank (EIB).

Preliminary work has also started for the construction of metro depot by taking pre NOC from the concerned departments. The metro depot is to be constructed at Subhash Nagar Underpass where metro trains for this line will be stabled and maintained. Bhopal Metro had sought 85 acres of land for the construction of metro depot but the administration has reserved 65 acres of land for the same.

Work on this section from AIIMS to Subhash Nagar is expected to be completed by August 2023 while construction work is yet to be started on Subhash Nagar to Karond Circle section which has a deadline of December 2024.
