BHUBANESHWAR (Metro Rail News): Delhi Metro Rail Corporation signed an MoU with the Bhubaneswar Metro Rail Corporation on 20th November for Bhubaneshwar Metro Phase 01. 

Memorandum of Understanding 

The MoU between DMRC & BMRC aims to assign DMRC as the turn-key consultant for the Bhubaneswar Metro Phase 01 at a Rs. 326.56 Crore fee. Its role here would be the same as in the Jaipur, Kochi, and Mumbai Metro. Its role would be limited to that of an implementer. The Project is to be completed within a four-year deadline. 

Signing 

The memorandum was signed between Siba Prasad Samantary, CEO of BMRC and Pramit Kumar Garg, Director of DMRC, in the virtual presence of Chief Minister of Odisha Shri Naveen Patnaik through Video conferencing. 5 T chairman V.K Pandian moderated the Program. 

“We are now poised to transform the transportation landscape in the state’s capital region. This is a flagship programme under the 5T (teamwork, technology, transparency, timely completion leading to transformation) initiative of the government that will also symbolise the emergence of a new Odisha,” Naveen Patnaik said.

Bhubaneshwar Metro Phase:01 

Bhubaneshwar Metro Phase: 01 runs from the Airport to Trishulia Square, approximately 26 Kilometers. It is being built at an expenditure of Rs 6 255 Crore, for which the state government approved the DPR on October 7, 2023. 

The 1st phase will have 20 stations made up of elevated viaducts. Bhubaneshwar Metro Rail Corporation, a fully-owned entity of the Odisha government, will bear the project’s entire cost. It will have stations as Biju Patnaik Airport, Capital Hospital, Sishu Bhawan, Bapuji Nagar, Bhubaneswar Railway Station, Ram Mandir Square, Vani Vihar, Acharya Vihar Square, Jaydev Vihar Square, Xavier Square, Rail Sadan, District Centre, Damana Square, Patia Square, KIIT Square, Nandan Vihar, Raghunathpur, Nandankanan Zoological Park, Phulapokhari and Trisulia.

The central Depot of the Metro Rail Project will be located near Trisulia Square, where the command and Control centre and the stabilising facilities for the metro trains will be constructed. 

Connectivity Boost 

The project will significantly boost connectivity in Bhubaneswar by connecting central locations. As per the future extension plans, the metro will connect Puri with the twin cities of Cuttack and Bhubaneshwar. 

It was announced by the Chief Minister of Odisha on April 1, the statehood day of Odisha, while it will be inaugurated by the CM himself on 1st January 2024.
