Indore Metro: State Orders New Feasibility Study for Underground Section Amid Public Concerns

Indore (Metro Rail News): To address public concerns and criticisms regarding the proposed route alignment of the Indore Metro, Technical experts have been instructed to conduct a new feasibility study for certain sections of the Indore Metro Phase 1 project.

On June 17, Urban Development Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya stated, “It seems the public and representatives of social organisations are unhappy with the present planning of some metro rail routes in the city. The participants have suggested changes, especially in the underground portion of the metro rail project.”

“Officials have been instructed to conduct a new feasibility survey on technical and financial aspects in view of these suggestions and submit a report within a month. Around 30 to 40 percent work of the metro rail project in the city has been completed. All decisions have already been taken at the level of the Central and state governments regarding this project,” he added.

He said, “The Metro may be built after a year, but the citizens should not be punished for it.”

Three Alternatives for Route:

According to a report by the Free Press Journal, three alternatives have been proposed for the Indore Metro. One option advocates running the metro underground from Bengali Square rather than near the High Court trisection. Another option is to begin the underground section from Agriculture College. A third alternative suggests directing the metro via Race Course Road instead of MG Road.

Indore Metro’s Journey:

In October 2018, the Central Government gave its approval for Phase 1 of the Indore Metro project. This phase spans a total length of 33.53 kilometres and encompasses 29 stations. Among these stations, 23 will be situated on elevated tracks, while the remaining 6 stations will be located underground.

The Priority Corridor of the Indore Metro, originally slated for completion by August 2023, is now anticipated to be completed and opened for public use by August 2024. However, Phase 1 is projected to be fully operational by 2027.
