NCC Begins Construction on Pune Metro’s Line-2

Following the award of a Rs. 363.70 crore contract to NCC in August, the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MahaMetro) on Thursday conducted a ground breaking / bhoomi puja ceremony to officially launch construction work on the 7.15 km Vanaz – Civil Court stretch of Pune Metro’s 14.665 km Line-2 (Vanaz – Ramwadi) on Paud Road.

After the 10.8 km Reach-1 between PCMC and Range Hills on Line-1, this is the second stretch of the 31.254 km Phase 1 project where construction has started in the city. This elevated section consists of 8 stations which will be constructed under a separate package at Vanaz, Anand Nagar, Ideal Colony, Nal Stop, Garware College, Deccan Gymkhana, Chhatrapati Sambhaji Park and PMC –

      For the pending stretches (esp the Range Hills – Swargate underground section), they’ll have to reach an agreement with a foreign lender to finance its construction. I know they’re in talks with EIB and ADB.
