In 2019, the DMRC modified the Detailed Project Report (DPR) and routes of both lines, originally prepared by RITES, leading to the creation of a new interchange at Khemni Chak, addition of 2 new stations (total of 26 now), and elimination of Line-1’s depot at Aitwarpur Village. Trains for both lines will now be stabled and maintained at the New ISBT Depot.

Patna Metro has seen a tremendous uptick in activity in the past month, with the appointment of AECOM as the Detailed Design Consultant (DDC) for both Line-1 and Line-2, and the emergence of SYSTRA as the lowest bidder as the DDC for the system’s OHE traction system. If things go according to the package PC-01’s bidding schedule, then a civil contractor can be expected to be appointed by June with full-fledged construction work beginning after the monsoons.
