Pune: Completion Of Yerwada Metro Station Delayed By Over A Month

More than two months since the launch of passenger services on the Ruby Hall Clinic to Ramwadi stretch, the Pune Metro faces delays in completing the crucial Yerawada station. The station’s construction, expected to take over a month more, leaves commuters uncertain about its opening date.


Initially, one entry-exit point near the PMC Kalas Dhanori ward office was finished, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurating the stretch on March 6. However, due to alleged traffic congestion caused by the staircase, work on the other entry-exit point halted last November. 

Although resumed in February, completion remains pending.
Yerawada, an important stop on the 5.5 km route between Ruby Hall Clinic and Ramwadi, holds significance for residents who demand prompt station completion. Presently, they must trek to the Bund Garden station, half a kilometer away.


Hemant Sonawane, Pune Metro’s director, assured ongoing efforts, stating, “The work is under process and will get completed within a month. After the completion, inspection by the Commissioner of Metro Railway Safety (CMRS) is required, pushing the opening timeline beyond a month. The citizens are kindly requested to cooperate he further added.” 
Located on the Pune-Ahmednagar national highway, Yerawada faces heavy traffic flow, with the metro station strategically positioned approximately 4.8 km from Pune Airport. It serves as a vital link for areas like Vishrantwadi, Maharashtra Housing Board, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Nagar, and Phule Nagar.
