For this work, around 6000 Tonnes of tracks were requested out of which around 3000 Tonnes of tracks have arrived for the first phase. Hence, the work is going on smoothly & at expected pace.”

The entire size of the Metro Line 3 will be 23.3 km.

The work of the Metro line between Maan-Hinjawadi-Shivajinagar is going on at a fast pace in various parts. The work of laying track for testing of metro trains has been started at this place recently. Just like Depot, ‘Track Plinth Casting’ work has been started at ‘PMR-1’ (Phase-3 Circle). For this, the first stock of rails has been made available to ‘Pune IT City’ Metro.

The metro route (viaduct) has been completed in parts at Hinjewadi. Therefore, the work of laying the track will be expanded in all these areas in a phased manner.

‘Third Line’ technology will be used for Maan-Hinjewadi-Shivajinagar route. In this, electricity is supplied to the train through the ‘third line’ from the two lines of the metro. This type of technology has been used in some cities in the country like New Delhi, Kochi, Bangalore, Lucknow. It will be used for the first time for a metro line in Pune.
