PM Modi to lay foundation stone of Pune’s Hinjewadi-Shivajinagar Metro line

Pune : Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for the third line of the Pune Metro rail project from Hinjewadi to Shivajinagar on Tuesday along with Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.

The Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) is developing the 23.4-km line with 23 stations between Hinjewadi to Shivajinagar and it will be the first Metro based on a public-private partnership (PPP) after the new Metro policy was introduced by the central government in 2016.

The stretch will connect the prominent IT hub at Hinjewadi with Shivajinagar where two other Metro lines will also join. This line will be one of the fastest mega projects in the city which has been being planned and executed in three years.
