When the metro work is on with a full sway and the people have heaved a huge sigh of relief, Pune Divisional Commissioner Chandrakant Dalvi has declared another great news by proposing the extension of Vanaz-Ramwadi metro route for extra seven kilometres till Wagholi. When there was a huge demand for the route to be extended, a lot of applications and letters were also thriving in, making the committee feel the push for this expansion yet more.
The extreme traffic congestion is the main reason why this need was severely felt and with Maha-metro sending a proposal for approval from the department of urban development, the daily commuters have actually found it an effective action to take delight in. The route has been asked to be included into the additional detailed project report. The additional financial provision has already been sanctioned and a positive reply is expected from the authority, while the state government is also on the verge of taking final decision.
Once the construction is done, the extension will come to the big aid of the commuters as commuting to the BPO companies in Wagholi and the IT hubs in Kharadi will no more be a tough grind. With the intention to make the lives of the residents easier and comfortable, Maha- Metro is now all set to execute the project more for the great interest of the folks.
The Pune metro project started in 2008 and in the last year, with the increasing population around Wagholi and Kharadi, the need for this extension was severely felt and the approval from the authority has worked as nothing but a wonder for the commuters.
Especially, for the commuters who have to travel from Shakore Nagar to Kharadi daily, the previous metro route, ending at Ramwadi, wouldn’t be of much help. However, this new extension will bridge up the gap and bring in the required balance.
After receiving the proposal from Chandrakant Dalvi, the Maha- Metro committee has confirmed that the plan has been sent to both the union as well as state governments for approval and the extension work will be on air once 50 per cent of the phase I and phase II construction is over. This overall expansion will not only bring in a gush of respite to the daily commuters, but will also be of a great help to the employees working around Wagholi.
