    Good to see that tender invited for line 1. One small change in the map, Patliputra station as per tender document is between Gola Road and Gokul road. Please amend the map accordingly.

      Cool – thanks for pointing out. The map above is indicative only, but I can easily make a change on the project information page’s Google Map. Can you tell me the coordinates for it?
