On Wednesday, March 6, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for the Pune Metro’s crucial extension from Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) to Nigdi (Bhakti Shakti Chowk). 

This expansion comprising an elevated route with four stations – Chinchwad, Akurdi, Nigdi, and Bhakti Shakti Chowk – was approved by the Centre on October 23, 2020.

The newly sanctioned extension is 4.413km long and has an estimated project cost of ₹910.18 crore. It consists of four individual distances: 1.463km from PCMC to Chinchwad, 1.651km from Chinchwad to Akurdi, 1.062km from Akurdi to Nigdi, and 975 metres from Nigdi to Bhakti Shakti Chowk. This extension will not only significantly augment the Pune Metro network but also cater to a total length of 37.613km, serving commuters at 33 stations.

This extension connects Swargate to PCMC and further extends to Nigdi, benefiting a multitude of commuters relying on Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd (PMPML) buses from Nigdi, Akurdi, and Chinchwad to Pune city areas.

In addition to laying the foundation stone, Prime Minister Modi is expected to virtually inaugurate the Pune Metro stretch from Ruby Hall Clinic to Ramwadi. This stretch, featuring four stations – Ruby Hall Clinic, Bundgarden, Yerawada, Kalyani Nagar, and Ramwadi, is poised to significantly benefit office-goers and students along the Nagar Road corridor. 

However, the operationalization of the Yerawada station may take approximately one more month. The overall expansion of the Pune Metro marks a crucial step towards enhancing connectivity and easing daily commutes for the residents of Pune.
