Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi to visit Pune on 1st August to flag off metro trains from completed sections of Pune Metro

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will visit Pune, Maharashtra on 1st August, 2023. At around 11 AM, the Prime Minister will perform Darshan and Pooja at Dagdusheth Mandir. At 12:45 PM, the Prime Minister will flag off metro trains and inaugurate and lay the foundation stone of various development projects.

More Details:

  • The Prime Minister will flag off Metro trains marking inauguration of services on completed sections of the two corridors of Pune Metro, Phase-1.
  • These sections are from Phugewadi station to Civil Court station and Garware College station to Ruby Hall Clinic station. Foundation Stone of the project was also laid by the Prime Minister in 2016.
  • The new sections will connect important places of the Pune city like Shivaji Nagar, Civil Court, Pune Municipal Corporation office, Pune RTO and Pune Railway Station. The inauguration is an important step towards realising the vision of the Prime Minister to provide the citizens with modern and environment-friendly mass rapid urban transport systems across the country.
  • The design of some of the metro stations on the route draws inspiration from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The Chhatrapati Sambhaji Udyan Metro Station and Deccan Gymkhana metro stations have a unique design resembling the headgear worn by soldiers of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj – also known as “Mavala Pagadi.”
  • The Shivaji Nagar underground metro station has a distinctive design which reminds of the forts built by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
  • Another unique feature is that the Civil Court metro station is one of the deepest metro stations in the country, having the deepest point at 33.1 m. The station roof is made in such a manner that direct sunlight falls on the platform.
