The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on April 16 invited bids from construction companies for the construction of Patna Metro Phase 1 project’s sole New ISBT Depot on an 18 hectare land parcel in the Pahari area of the city.
The depot was earlier only going to serve the 14.05 km Line-2 connecting Patna Junction Railway Station – New ISBT, but a modification to the 30.91 km project’s Detailed Project Report in Q4 2019 resulted in 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.
The depot will consist of 2 workshop bays with provision for 2 in the future, 2 inspection bays with provision for 2 in the future, 8 stabling lines which can accomodate 32 3-coach trains, an auto coach washing plan.
