Did you notice the map in the above image’s background? Guess where that’s from? 🙂

With construction launched, I expect this section to open no sooner than 2021. Bids for the crucial Sitabuldi interchange station still haven’t yet been invited, so Nagpur’s metro project, just like Bangalore’s, is headed towards fragmented operations with 2 stand-alone lines as shown in this status map:

Green: Under Construction | Red: Bids Invited | Black: Bids Yet to be Invited
