In order to boost connectivity in semi-urban areas of Nagpur, the Mahrashtra Cabinet has approved Phase-II of Nagpur Metro Project. The project aims to particularly help those employed in the industrial areas of Nagpur and have to commute long-distance daily.
The state cabinet has cleared the Phase-II of the Nagpur Metro project worth Rs 112.16 billion, while Phase-I of the project worth Rs 86.8 billion crore is reportedly being executed by MahaMetro (and is about 75 per cent complete). The project is being sent to the Union Cabinet for approval.
Phase-II of the project is expected to cover rural parts of Nagpur district and will serve as an extension to the ongoing first phase. The proposed phase will be spread over a length of 48.3 km with 35 stations.
