Pune, 22nd January 2024: The eagerly anticipated extension of Pune Metro’s service from Ruby Hall to Ramwadi is on the verge of becoming a reality as Central Metro Rail Safety Commissioner Janak Kumar Garg concluded the final inspection of this route. The inspection, which commenced on January 19, was completed by January 21, marking a significant milestone in the project.
During the inspection, Commissioner Garg identified some minor errors along the extended route and directed Mahametro to address these issues promptly. Once these corrections are made, the metro service is expected to receive final approval from the Safety Commissioner.
The inspection process began earlier this month when a team from the Metro Rail Safety Commissioner’s Office arrived in Pune to scrutinize the extended Metro line from Ruby Hall to Ramwadi. After a week-long inspection, the team highlighted certain errors, subsequently rectified by Mahametro. Commissioner Garg then personally visited Pune to conduct the final inspection.
Atul Gadgil, Director (Works), Mahametro, mentioned that the final inspection of the Ruby Hall to Ramwadi Metro line has been successfully concluded by the Central Metro Rail Safety Commissioner. The identified minor errors will be addressed, and the report, expected to be submitted within four to five days, will pave the way for the final approval of the extended route.
Once the Safety Commissioner gives the green light, Mahametro will engage in discussions with the state government regarding the official commencement of the route. The state government will subsequently determine the date for initiating the service on this extended route, according to sources from Mahametro.
As the final approval inches closer, Pune residents can anticipate the extended Metro service to enhance connectivity and convenience along the Ruby Hall to Ramwadi corridor.
