The new extended lines of the Pune Metro from Phugewadi station to Civil Court station and Garware College station to Ruby Hall-Clinic station were officially opened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday, August 1.
PM Modi announced the beginning of Metro service on the two completed lines of Pune Metro Phase-I while on a day trip to Pune, Maharashtra. In March 2022, these two Pune Metro lines were made partially operational. Now, the project is fully operating.
The two new lines that PM Modi officially opened are the ones that connect Garware College station to the Ruby Hall-Clinic station and Phugewadi station to the Civil Court station. The additional portions will link key locations in Pune. They will include the municipal building, Shivaji Nagar, the civil court, the RTO, and the railway station.
Garware College, Deccan Gymkhana, Chhatrapati Sambhaji Udyan, Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), Civil Court, Mangalwar Peth, Pune Railway Station, and Ruby Hall Clinic are the seven stops along the 4.7 km route between them. There are four new stations along the 6.9-kilometre Pimpri Chinchwad to Shivajinagar Court line. They include Phugewadi, Dapodi, Bopodi, Shivaji Nagar and Civil Court.
