Pune Metro update

Pune Metro update

Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation is implementing the Pune Metro Rail Project, which has two corridors: one from Vanaz to Ramwadi which is an elevated line and the other from PCMC to Swargate which is elevated from PCMC to Agriculture college and then moves underground for about 6 km towards Swargate.  

After successful underground tunnel work between the College of Agriculture and Civil Court at Shivajinagar, the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (Maha-Metro) retrieved the TBMs at the Civil Court Metro Station. These TBMs are being reassembled to start tunnelling towards Budhwar Peth station also part of the Pune Metro Underground route from Shivajinagar to Swargate.  

80% of the ramp work has now been completed, the ramps will be used to switch over the metro rail from elevated to underground position & vice versa on the PCMC to Swargate route.
