The Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) is expected to receive a detailed project report (DPR) on Metro corridor extensions by the next week. Metro extensions have been proposed on Shivajinagar-Hadapsar-Loni Kalbhor and Saswad road.
The DPR is being drafted by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. The PMRDA is already constructing a Metro line from Hinjewadi to Shivajinagar and has been working on the development of more lines in and around Pune. The proposed Shivajinagar-Hadapsar-Loni Kalbhor line will connect the city’s Western and Eastern parts.
A possibility of extending the Metro line up to Saswad road is also being explored, considering the proposed international airport ahead of Saswad. The extension towards Saswad can be from Hadapsar. “We are expecting the study report in the next few days. We will plan further after studying the report,” Suhas Diwase, PMRDA chief, said.
