Menu: Construction Updates | Overview

Introduction

The Ahmedabad Metro system is an urban Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) being built by ‘Metro-Link Express for Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad’ (MEGA) to serve Ahmedabad – Gujarat’s biggest city and its capital, Gandhinagar, in the future. Construction work for its 39.259 km first phase started in 2015 and is expected to be completed by 2023.

In February 2016, the Gujarat state government allocated a sum of Rs 2 crore in its 2016-17 state budget and appointed the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to prepare Phase 2’s Detailed Project Report (DPR). As per the draft DPR, the 18.522 km Line-2 is planned to be extended northward to connect Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar and will feature two branches or spur lines – view more information here.
