The 7 stations en route are being built by Afcons – SPCPL JV with a contract value of Rs. 470.43 crore at Mangalwar Peth, Pune Railway Station, Ruby Clinic, Bund Garden, Yerawada, Kalyani Nagar and Ramwadi.

      No idea about the other bridge. Will need to check.

      Still waiting for BMRCL to release the launch date. Industry friends don’t have a rough timeframe either.

      Hey, that sounds nice but I don’t know if I’d be able to dedicate time towards it. My goal right now is to focus on the site and be consistent and timely 🙂

      Aren’t those two different lines?

      • TMRG says:

        Yup. Although Vanaz and Hinjawadi are on the city’s west-side, I haven’t seen any plan to connect both places.
