Pune Metro Stations Leak Amid Heavy Rainfall

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has yet to officially declare the advent of monsoons in Pune, but the city is already experiencing significant rain-related issues. Recent heavy rains have caused waterlogging, tree falls, and power cuts across Pune. The newly constructed metro stations have not been spared, with reports of leakages emerging.

At the Vanaz Metro Station, leakage has made the floor wet and slippery, posing a risk of slip-and-fall accidents. Another video going viral on social media shows water pouring from the PMC Metro Station onto the road, creating difficulties for commuters.
A tweet highlighting the issue said, “As soon as it starts raining in Pune #पुणे waterfalls are starting like this from Municipal Metro Station. Proper drainage of rain water should be done by @metrorailpune. Don’t let people experience the hustle and bustle of Tamhini, Varandha Ghat under the metro station.”


Social media users were quick to comment. One user quipped, “It seems it was designed to provide a waterfall experience to Punekars without going to Khandala or Lonavala.” Another user reminisced, “Seeing this water dripping brought back memories of the Commonwealth Games.” A different user added, “That’s a special provision so you don’t miss going to Tamhini or other places.”


These issues highlight the need for proper drainage systems in the city’s metro stations to prevent such inconveniences during the monsoon season. As the rains continue, Pune residents hope for swift action from the authorities to address these problems and ensure safer commutes.
