Last month, France’s Agence Française de Développement (AFD) indicated it will be supporting Surat Metro through a €250 million  (approx. Rs. 2071 crore) loan. Following that, GMRC published an EOI notice for appointing the project’s General Engineering Consultant (GEC). A month prior to that, GMRC invited bids for Line-1’s Detailed Design Consultant (DDC), so things are now moving along quite nicely with full-fledged construction work expected to begin in Q1 2021.

    Why is the depot so far away?

      So as to not use Dream City’s prime real estate? That’s where Surat Municipal Corp’s official map listed it at. Found it odd. Most likely the depot will be closer.
