Pune: “Ninety five percent work of interchange Civil court station has been completed and it will take one more month to complete the remaining work,” said Brijesh Dixit, Managing Director of Maha Metro during the press meet on Wednesday at the Civil court station.
The Civil Court Interchange Metro station has an underground station on the PCMC to Swargate route and an elevated station on the Vanaz to Ramwadi route. The underground station is connected to the elevated station by escalators and lifts.
“There are 18 escalators and 8 lifts installed at the station for easy access of the public,” added Dixit.
The depth of Civil Court Interchange metro station is 33.1 meters (108.59 ft), making it the deepest metro station in India. One of the unique features of this underground station is that the ceiling of the underground station is 95 feet high and is arranged to receive direct sunlight or natural light.
It is the only underground metro station to have such a vestibule. Pedestrian or transport provision has been made to this Civil Court Interchange metro station from the sides of Dengle Bridge, Kamgar Putala and Pune District Court.
The third metro line to be constructed in Pune from Civil Court to Hinjewadi will be connected to this station by a pedestrian bridge. Hence, Civil Court Interchange Metro Station will be named as the central station of the Metro.
“The time of the passengers will be saved to a large extent. The 22 km journey from PCMC to Vanaz will be covered in just 31 minutes. Metro has provided an environmentally friendly, fast, safe, all-weather option to the citizens of Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad,” added Dixit.
