Pune: Pune is ready to introduce two new routes for metro commuters. As Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has approved the preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR) for two new routes under Pune Metro Rail Project. The demand was put up by the leader of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Mr. Sunil Tingre.

After the approval by the City Development Committee, the proposal is forwarded to the standing committee. And the good news is that the standing committee has given its nod to the proposal.

Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (Maha-Metro) is asked to prepare the DPR for the project. Pune Municipal Corporation needs to see deeply in the project as the new route will connect Airport as well as need to think of the Hyperloop project or you can say trial track project.

“Work on the Vanaz-Ramwadi route is on and the area is growing heavily populated. There are a lot of IT companies coming up there, too. Considering this, we felt that the route should be given extensions on these two patches. Accordingly, we have decided to ask the Maha-Metro authorities to prepare the DPR, since they are already doing the work for the remaining patch. After the budget estimate and DPR is in place, further discussions will take place.” Chairman of standing committee Yogesh Mulik  said

The work on Vanaz-Ramwadi route is in progress and the new routes will connect Ramwadi to Wagholi and Pune International Airport.

“A formal presentation of the Metro route was given to corporators in September 2017. During the meeting, I had demanded that this route should further be connected to the airport and Wagholi, considering the traffic. The proposal has been approved by the standing committee and I am sure the process will be completed soon.” Tingre said
