Information

Ahmedabad Metro is an urban Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) being built by Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation (GMRC) Limited, formerly known as ‘Metro-Link Express for Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad’ (MEGA), to serve Ahmedabad – Gujarat’s biggest city and its capital, Gandhinagar, in the future.

Construction work on Ahmedabad Metro’s Phase 1 with routes of 39.259 km started in 2015 and is expected to be completed in 2024.

In February 2016, the Gujarat state government allocated a sum of Rs 2 crore in its 2016-17 state budget and appointed the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to prepare Phase 2’s Detailed Project Report (DPR). As per the draft DPR, the 18.522 km Line-2 is planned to be extended northward to connect Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar and will feature 1 branch/spur lines to GIFT City – view more information here.

In February 2019, India’s Union Cabinet approved the construction of a 28.254 km Phase 2 with 2 corridors – a northward extension of Line-2 with a short spur. Its foundation stone was laid by the Prime Minister on March 4, 2019.
