Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation Limited (GMRC) on Friday launched the tendering process for the civil construction of Surat Metro’s 18.74 km Line-2 which will connect Bhesan – Saroli via 18 stations.
This corridor of the 40.35 km Surat Metro Phase 1 will be entirely elevated and form of an interchange with Line-1 at Majura Gate in the heart of the city.
