PUNE (Metro Rail News): The Pune Metro Line 3 project, connecting the IT hub of Hinjewadi to the central business district of Shivajinagar, has made significant progress across several sections. Construction of the piers, which form a crucial part of the project, has seen a recent acceleration, with the erection of 100 piers completed in just 60 days. This brings the total number of piers erected to 300, a major milestone in the project’s development.

The joint venture between Tata Group and the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) is overseeing the construction of the metro rail system on a public-private partnership basis. Tata Group has established the Pune IT City Metro Rail Limited as a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for the project’s implementation.

The piers, which are being constructed according to strict design and safety standards set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), are a special circular shape with a diameter of 2000mm, fully compliant with the design parameters of the metro rail system. The project developers are committed to following all construction safety parameters and quality control measures to ensure the project is completed on time.

The Pune Metro Line 3 will provide easy, convenient, and affordable public transport options between Hinjewadi and Shivajinagar, benefiting the citizens of Pune. The project will be developed and operated on a design, build, finance, operate, and transfer (DBFOT) basis by the SPV, Pune IT City Metro Rail Limited (PITCMRL), for a concession period of 35 years, including the construction period.
