The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has been entrusted to carry out the deposit work of Patna Metro Rail project. For this, DMRC has set up its project office in Patna and now planning to deploy project staffs including the Projects Managers.
The first train maintenance depot will be constructed at Danapur and another near the proposed Inter-State Bus Terminal (ISBT) near Aitwarpur on Patna-Gaya road. The bidding process for acquisition of land for the metro rail project has already started and tender will be floated soon.
They are awaiting approval of the project progress report (PPR) and release of funds by the government to start construction work. Five officials, including the project director and general manager (works), have already joined the Patna Metro Rail Corporation (PMRC). We will also hire consultants for technical and legal assistance. The objective is to improve mobility in the city for all socio-economic groups and genders.
The construction work will be started on the 16.94 km stretch under east-west corridor which will connect Danapur with Mithapur bus stand via Saguna Mor, Bailey Road and Patna Junction. It is expected that the deposit work of the Patna metro rail project will be started in three months.
