PATNA (Metro Rail News): The proposed metro station to be built close to Patliputra Bus Terminal (PBT) shall be immediately connected to the bus depot. To make it easier for commuters from the densely populated nearby areas like Ilahibag, Sampatchak, and RPS Mor and to accommodate all different site visitors coming from SH-1.

The Patna Metro Rail project is being carried out by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited (DMRCL). It has been planned to provide direct connectivity between the PBT metro station and bus depot via a foot overbridge. Officers have directed the planning of two entrances and exits, four lifts, and six elevators near the interstate bus terminus premises depot to aid in the movement of passengers to the metro station.

The station might include a multi-modal integration feature that allows for temporary parking, pick-up, and drop-off options with various modes of existing transport infrastructure. Four auto and two taxi bays may be available at the station’s entrance and exit for pick-up and drop-off services by private and intermediate public transportation modes.
The metro station might even include a designated parking lot that would make it easier for commuters from Bakhtiyarpur and the Mahatma Gandhi Setu to park their cars and avoid traffic jams.

The PBT station is a section of the precedence hall, beneath which five elevated stations will be built at Malahi Pakri, Khemnichak (interchangeable station), Bhootnath, Zero Mile, and the interstate bus terminal in hall II. It will likely be 6.5 kilometers long, while the whole length of the underground part is 7.9 km comprising six underground metro stations, specifically Patna Junction (interchangeable station), Akashvani, Gandhi Maidan, PMCH, Patna College, Moin-ul-Haq Stadium, and Rajendra Nagar.

DMRCL officials stated that the PBT metro station would be important from the perspective of connection because Mauza Pahadi bus terminal, located on the Patna-Gaya highway, has interstate and local bus stops linking practically every region of the state as well as neighbouring states. The officials stated that it could play a significant role in redefining the city transportation state of affairs of the capital city of Bihar.
It is anticipated that elevated stations for hall II will be built by 2025. Utility investigation and preliminary geotechnical surveys have been completed. Piling work has been completed, and the pier work on the hall has improved in a positive way. As soon as the girders are installed (giant iron or metal beams for constructing viaducts) will full, the civil work on the metro station will start.

The 32.5-km-long Patna Metro Rail Mission, comprising the Danapur-Mithapur-Khemni Chak hall I and Patna Railway Station-PBT on hall II, is predicted to profit over two million passengers from town and also will scale back the variety of autos and ease congestion.
