The Underground Corridor inside the Walled City area of Jaipur Metro, will open soon after Covid-19 restrictions are eased as the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) has accorded the mandatory approval for starting passenger operations.
Once the metro is re-opened, the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC) will run a train on the entire stretch from Mansarovar to Badi Chaupar. JMRC chairman-cum-managing director (CMD) Samit Sharma said, “We are ready to start the operation. It will soon start after the Centre gives nod to run all the metros.”
The underground corridor, which is an expansion of Phase-I is constructed between Chandpole and Badi Chaupar. The length of the entire Metro Phase 1A and 1B is 12.07km.
“The project cost of underground Phase-IB project is Rs 1,126 crore. Out of which Rs 969 crore has been provided by the Asian Development Bank (ADB),” said a senior official.
