Share this News:

Pune, 1st May 2023: Despite being approved in principle by the Maharashtra state government and after clearing various approval hurdles, the Pune-Nashik Semi High-Speed Railway project has stalled, causing concern among citizens.

The railway route was approved after a meeting between Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in February, with the final approval expected after the submission of its report to the Ministry of Railways. However, no progress has been made since then.

The project’s design was made after consultation with the ‘GMRT project’ at Khodad, with proposals sent to various banks by the “Maharail” company for the acquisition of 60% of the funds in the form of loans. However, due to the lack of a decision at the government level, the banks are not moving forward with the file.

The railway project will pass through 54 villages in Haveli, Khed, Ambegaon, and Junnar talukas of Pune district, requiring the acquisition of 478 hectares of land, at an estimated cost of three and a half thousand crore rupees.

With no updates on the project’s progress, citizens remain concerned about the potential traffic congestion on city roads that could be avoided with the implementation of the Pune-Nashik Semi High Speed Railway.
