Pune, 15th June 2022: Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) will take up the work of expansion of the metro line between Shivajinagar to Loni Kalbhor, Hadapsar to Saswad and Khadakwasla to Kharadi. A meeting of the Pune Unified Urban Transport Authority (PUMTA) has been called in this regard.

Maan near Hinjawadi is a car depot for Metro. There is also a reservation for Metro car depots at Lonikalbhor. Therefore, PMRDA has demanded that work be done on this metro line from Pulgate to Hadapsar.


“A depot will be set up at Khadakwasla for the metro, so we will work on the metro line between Pulgate and Hadapsar,” said an official of the Mahametro.

A meeting of the PUMTA was held under the chairmanship of Divisional Commissioner Saurabh Rao to take a decision in this regard.

Mahametro has proposed a 28 km long metro line from Khadakwasla-Swargate Pulgate-Hadapsar Phata (Magarpatta City) to Kharadi. PMRDA has proposed a 19 km metro route from Shivajinagar-Pulgate-Hadapsar to Lonikalbhor. As the eight-kilometre route from Pulgate to Hadapsar is common, a meeting will be held to decide who should work on it.

In such situations;

• Work from Hinjewadi to Shivajinagar is undertaken by PMRDA

• Work on Pimpri-Chinchwad to Swargate route is undertaken by Mahametro

• Expansion of both routes by PMRDA and Mahametro. Accordingly, PMRDA has decided to extend the route from Hinjewadi to Shivajinagar to Lonikalbhor

• 28 km road from Khadakwasla to Kharadi proposed by Mahametro

• PMRDA’s extended metro Lonikalbhor, and one phata on Saswad line is at and Shivajinagar Pulgate, Hadapsar

• The proposed route for Mahametro to Khadakwasla is Swargate, Pulgate-Hadapsar phata to Kharadi.

• The question arises as to who should develop the route as the Pullgate to Hudsper route is common on both the routes

What happened at the meeting?

The technical and financial report of the eight-kilometre route between Pulgate and Hadapsar should be prepared separately by PMRDA and Mahametro. Whose project is financially viable? It was decided that someone should work on that path. Also, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar had given instructions in this regard to PMRDA and Mahametro. Accordingly, PMRDA and Mahametro held joint meetings. The meeting discussed technical issues. Both the organizations have shown willingness to do these three ways. Therefore, it was decided to leave the decision to PUMTA, informed PMRDA officials.

On this, an official of the PMRDA said, “The routes from Shivajinagar to Lonikalbhor, Hadapsar to Saswad and Khadakwasla to Kharadi were discussed in detail between PMRDA and Mahametro. Both organizations have shown a willingness to work in all these ways. The final decision will be taken at the PUMTA meeting, which will be held soon.”
