Patna metro rail project’s corridor 2 gains momentum

The construction work on corridor 2 of the Patna metro rail project between Patna Junction and Patliputra bus terminal, is set to gain momentum with the transfer of required land.

The land required for Corridor 2 of the project was granted to Patna Metro Rail Corporation Limited (PMRC), and a no-objection certificate was obtained from the departments involved. The transfer of 1,340 sq m of land on Fraser Road is under process.

A PMRC official told the media that there was a bid for a 1,277 sq m land transfer at Rajendra Nagar railway station. The land belongs to the railways. Danapur cantonment has decided to transfer 934 sq m land, and the offer is sent to the ministry of defence. Another 76-acre land for the development of ISBT Patna Metro Rail Depot and ISBT station is being procured by the district administration. The state government has approved Rs 1,000 crore for land purchase.

He said that the PMRC was optimistic about obtaining funds from Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) by the coming month to further facilitate the development work on the metro rail project. The development work on Corridor 2 between Danapur and Khemnichak will commence in 2022. The Corridor I will be 17.9 km long from Danapur to Khemnichack through Mithapur, of which 7.3 km will be heightened and 10.5 km underground. Corridor 2 will be 14.5 km from Patna Junction to ISBT (a 7.9 km space will be underground and 6.6km elevated).

Altogether 25 metro stations will be built. Urban development and housing department authority told the media that six pillars have been built while piling work of 115 has been achieved. Altogether 200 pillars would be built for an elevated section of Corridor 2 (priority corridor) which comprise six stations; Khemnichak (interchangeable station), Malahi Pakri, Bhootnath Road, Zero Mile and Patliputra bus stand. It is about 6.6 km long.
