PUNE (Metro Rail News): Pune locals will soon have access to the ultra-modern, high-speed Neo Metro service throughout the city. The Pune Municipal Corporation has received a Detailed Project Report (DPR) of the Neo metro from the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (Maha Metro).

Neo-Metro is a mass rapid transit system that offers affordable, environment-friendly and energy-efficient urban transportation solutions for Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. It will travel at a speed of 90 km/h and have a carrying capacity that is three to five times greater than that of public buses.

On an elevated platform, Pune’s Neo Metro will travel a 43.84 km span of the city on an elevated platform. There will be 45 stations. The project is expected to get underway by December of this year and will be finished by 2028-2029, as stated by the officials. The project’s anticipated cost is set at Rs. 4940 crores. The civic organization contacted Maha Metro about transforming the proposed High Capacity Mass Transit Route (HCMTR) into a Metro Neo project as stated by MD Brijesh Dixit.
Ambedkar Chowk, Savitribai Phule Pune University, Senapati Bapat Road, Kelewadi, Paudphata, Alankar Police Thane, Siddhi Garden, Senadat Police Chowki, Sanas Playground, Laxmi Narayan Chowk, City Pride Station, Market Yard, Gangadham Chowk. , Bibvewadi, Lullanagar, Jambhulkar Chowk, Fatimanagar, Ghorpadi, Pingale Vasti, Vadgaon Sherry, Vimannagar, Airport, Vishrantwadi, Deccan College, Khadki Methodist Church and Bopodi are the stations that are proposed for the Neo Metro in Pune.

According to reports, the Pune project may get momentum only after the Nashik plan starts. The Union cabinet has already given its approval for the 32-km Nashik neo metro project. It will be the nation’s first project of its kind if it is implemented quickly.

The Nashik metro project is expected to cost around Rs 2100 crore. If it was a rail-based metro it would have caused more than Rs 8000 crore.
