PUNE (Metro Rail News): On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the completed sections of Pune Metro Phase I, which include the stretches from Phugewadi to Civil Court and Garware College to Ruby Hall Clinic stations. These sections have a total of 11 stations each and cover a distance of 12 km. The foundation stone for this project was laid by the Prime Minister in 2016.

The stretch from Garware College to Ruby Hall Clinic is elevated, while trains will run on both elevated and underground sections between Phugewadi and Civil Court.

On Monday, a trial run was conducted ahead of the inauguration between Ruby Hall Clinic and Shivajinagar stations. From now on, commuters can use the Metro to travel from Pune to Pimpri, as well as to Pune and Shivajinagar railway stations.

The Metro stations have been designed with at least one entry-exit gate, allowing commuters to access the concourse level and platforms easily. Metro services will be available from 7 am to 10 pm, with a frequency of trains every 10 minutes during rush hours and every 15 minutes in non-peak hours.

Notably, the Civil Court metro station is one of the deepest in the country, having the deepest point at 33.1 m., and has a unique design that allows direct sunlight onto the platform. Some metro stations draw inspiration from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s iconic elements.

These new Metro sections will connect important locations in Pune, making commuting easier and more convenient for the citizens.
The Prime Minister’s vision for modern and eco-friendly mass rapid urban transport systems across India is furthered by this inauguration.
