PUNE: The MahaMetro Rail Corporation will start the process of inviting tenders for constructing the 7.7-km-long viaduct on Civil Court-Ramwadi route in a few days and complete the entire procedure in three months.
Maharashtra Metro Corporation Limited (MahaMetro)’s managing director Brijesh Dixit said on Thursday the tenders would be invited in two to three days.
He said MahaMetro had plans to complete the process in the next three months, following which the actual work would begin.
The MahaMetro is done with the required surveys and alignment of this Metro corridor.
The route planned via RTO, Pune station, Bund Garden, Yerawada, Nagar Road and Ramwadi would have eight stations.
The entire stretch would be elevated.
The Civil Court-Ramwadi line is a part of Vanaz-Ramwadi Metro corridor. MahaMetro has started civil work on the Vanaz to Civil Court stretch.
The Metro route has been changed near Pune station after the railway administration sought rerouting of the line via Raja Bahadur Mill Road-end instead of the earlier alignment via Pune station’s main entrance.“The re-routing has brought down the length of the route by about 300metres.
