Wanaj-Ramwadi Metro sanctioned
Of the two corridors for Pune Metro rail project covering 31.5 km in the first phase, the state government in its budget yesterday accorded its sanction to the section from Wanaj to Ramwadi
The other corridor Pimpri-Chinchwad to Swargate is under consideration. The total estimated cost of the project is Rs 10,183 crore.
The government has also accorded in-principle approval to the elevated Nagpur Metro Rail project, which is estimated to cost Rs 7,350 crore.
Speaking to MiD DAY, Dr Neelam Gorhe, Shiv Sena spokesperson and Pune MLC, said, “There’s nothing about the Pune Metro rail in the budget, as it mentions that fund allocation will be done after getting an approval from the centre. The budget is very disappointing for Punekars.”
