Pune metro finally completes elevated stretch on Corridor I

The elevation of a 12.064-km rail segment on the route from PCMC Station to Swargate Station of Pune Metro Corridor I was completed this week. The stretch from Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation Station to Range Hill Station is elevated and the rest of the route is underground.

The trial run of the metro train on the route from Phugewadi station to Civil Court station can now be conducted soon. After the trial, the route from Phugewadi station to Civil Court station will be opened for passengers.

A total of 3,934 segments were cast for the elevated track. As many as 451 spans were constructed through these segments and 12.064 km of elevated track was constructed.

Many hurdles were overcome to complete this elevated route. The biggest difficulty was getting the land from Harris Bridge to Khadki from the Army. After continuous follow-up with the Army, the metro authorities finally got land in July 2022.

With the launching of the last segment, the gap in viaduct route between Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation Station to Harris Bridge and Range Hill Station to Khadki is filled and the viaduct complete.
