PMRDA proposes skyway to connect Pune Metro to IT hub

The Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) has proposed a skyway to connect the Hinjewadi Metro station to various companies in the IT hub for last-mile connectivity. PMRDA officials said that the authority has tied up with a private company to construct the skyway?s pilot test track of 2.5km ? to be completed in a year?s time.

The string rail track structure will connect the Hinjewadi Metro station to IT companies in the hub and will have three stations. Later, the track will cover 10 km. PMRDA officials said the framework agreement in this regard has been signed between the authority and the private company.

A 2.5 km test track will be developed in the first phase, according to the plan. It will start at the Hinjewadi Phase II circle and pass from the MIDC hill service reservoir to Mannara technologies private limited. It will then turn left on the circle and go on to connect to a few other companies. ?The pilot project will comprise constructing a string rail track structure of the overpass type along with three stations for passenger to board and alight,? said senior PMRDA officials.

The authority also confirmed that after receipt of safety approvals, the full track of about 10 km shall be proposed. The entire cost of the development will be borne by the private entity. Last-mile connectivity to software firms in the IT hub is the focus while completing the Hinjewadi-Wakad stretch.
