MADHYA PRADESH (Metro Rail News): On 14th September, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath laid the foundation stone for Rs 7500.80-crore metro rail project in the state’s commercial capital.
Amid chanting of mantras, Nath performed the ‘Bhumipujan’ (ground-breaking) ceremony for the project on MR-10 Road here.
State Urban Development Minister Jaiwardhan Singh and other ministers were present on the occasion. Under the project, a 31.55-km-long corridor is proposed to be built in the city.
Officials said, while most of the metro section will be elevated, a portion will run underground, adding that the metro rail corridor will pass through Nainod, Bhanwarsala intersection, Radisson intersection, and Bengali Chauraha.
A total of 29 stations would be built on this route.
The project, conceived during the tenure of erstwhile BJP government in the state and approved by the Centre in October last year, is expected to be completed by August 2023.
