Share post:

PATNA (Metro Rail News): The proposed underground metro station of Patna Metro Rail Corporation at Patna Medical College will not only provide metro connectivity to the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) and Patna Market area but also reduce the number of vehicles on the road and ease traffic congestion. The station will serve as a lifeline and provide seamless connectivity to people from all over the state to the distinguished medical institution of Patna, PMCH, for treatment.

Being the hub of major commercial activities, Government Hospitals, Market complexes and colleges, this underground metro station will serve as a breather by easing traffic congestion in one of the town’s most congested and busiest locations. Two entry or exit gates will be inside the PMCH campus, where major revamping work is underway.

The Station will have Two Entry/Exit gates: 

  1. Entry/ Exit 1 Stairs, escalators, lift (to concourse) – caters to the public for PMCH hospital.
  2. Entry/Exit 2 Stairs, lift – caters to the public for Patna market.

The proposed metro station will be approx. 227 m long and 16.50 m below the ground level, passing beneath the PMCH hospital premises.  A two-level metro station will provide connectivity to some of the significant institutions, market hubs, medical institutions like PMCH, Darbhanga House (North of PMCH), B.N. College, Patna Dental College, Anjuman Islamia Hall, Public Health Institute, Drugs market, medical shops, Catholic Church, Civil court, Bankipore post office, Pirbhore Thana, primary market; Govinda Mitra road, Patna market, Hathuwa market and approach road to Patna university, science college etc.

Arrangements for emergencies: 

In case of any emergency, the station is proposed to have three fire escapes, out of which one connects the platform and concourse directly to exit the station premises; however, by using the other two fire escapes (staircase), the passengers will be evacuated from platform to concourse, and from there, any of two Entry/Exits can be taken to exit station premises. One firefighters’s staircase (separately) is also there for Firefighters to enter station premises during Emergencies.
