On Sunday, March 6, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Pune to open a 12-kilometer portion of the 32.2-kilometer Pune metro train project. He will also lay the foundation stone for a number of development projects.
At roughly 11:30 a.m., Prime Minister Narendra Modi will open the Pune Metro Rail Project. The project is estimated to cost more than Rs 11,400 crore in total.
PM Modi will also visit Garware Metro Station to open and examine an exhibition before taking the metro to Anandnagar Metro Station.
“The Pune Metro Rail Project aims to provide Pune with world-class facilities for urban mobility. The Prime Minister also lay the project’s foundation stone in December 2016,” the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said.
Around 12 p.m., the Prime Minister will also unveil 100 e-buses and an e-bus depot built in Baner, as well as lay the groundwork for programmes to rejuvenate and clean up the Mula-Mutha River.
A 9-kilometer length of the river will be rejuvenated as part of the project, which would cost more than Rs 1,080 crore. River edge protection, interceptor sewage network, public amenities, boating activity, and other projects will be included.
“At a cost of around Rs 1,470 crore, the Mula-Mutha River pollution abatement project will be built on the principle of ‘One City One Operator.’ The project will build a total of 11 sewage treatment plants with a combined capacity of roughly 400 MLD” PMO said.
