Centre Fast-Tracks Vanaz-Chandani Chowk, Ramwadi-Wagholi Metro Line Extension

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry declared on Saturday that the extension of the Pune metro line from Vanaz to Chandni Chowk and Ramwadi to Wagholi has been expedited by the Centre.

Two lines at the eastern and western extremities of the Vanaz-Ramwadi metro route will be extended as part of the ₹3,757 crore project. The western expansion includes two stations: Kothrud Bus Depot Station and Chandni Chowk Station. It spans an elevated portion of 1.12 kilometres from Vanaz to Chandani Chowk. From Ramwadi to Wagholi, the eastern portion of the expansion is elevated and spans 11 stations, including Viman Nagar, Somnath Nagar, Kharadi Bypass, Tulaja Bhavani, Ubale Nagar, Upper Kharadi Road, Wagheshwar Temple, Wagholi, Siddharth Nagar, Bakori Phata, and Vithalwadi.

By connecting Pune’s fast expanding suburbs with the city centre, this project will shorten travel times and ease traffic congestion.

This extension was approved in March of this year by the Maharashtra government. Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar stated, “The approval to extend the Pune metro rail will help in the industrial development of the city and provide an environmentally friendly mass transport system for the growing population.”

“This extension will improve accessibility for IT companies, financial institutions, schools, and colleges along the Ramwadi to Wagholi stretch, thereby reducing congestion on the congested Nagar Road,” said Shravan Hardikar, Managing Director of MahaMetro. In a similar vein, local businesses and residents will gain from the Vanaz to Chandni Chowk extension.”

The project will be carried out by the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (Maha-Metro) with 20% financial support from the central and state governments. The remaining ₹1,935.89 crore will be obtained by Maha-Metro from financial institutions.

By 2027, the line is expected to have 3.59 lakh daily riders, and by 2057, it is expected to have 9.93 lakh riders.
