Construction of Infrastructure Projects across the country has suffered immensely during the COVID-19 period. But the pandemic has failed to dampen the spirit of Maha-Metro team.
At its Nagpur project, duly taking abundant precaution to ensure full safety to team of contractors, consultants and Maha-Metro duly following all the norms of construction during pandemic COVID 19 period, Maha Metro relentlessly continued with its work at all the major and minor work sites of Nagpur. The work related to pier, via-duct and various stations was executed with minute planning.
During this difficult period, Nagpur Metro team has been able to complete the construction of four more stations – Ajni Square (area of 4,815 sq. m), Rahate Colony (area of 5,798 sq. m) and Bansi Nagar (area of 5,800 sq. m) and LAD Square metro station (area of 4466.33 sq. m). Of the four, Ajni Square and Rahate Colony are located on Orange Line. These stations are part of Reach-I which stretches from Khapri Metro Station to Sitabuldi Interchange.
The other two stations – Bansi Nagar and LAD Square are located on Reach-III of Aqua Line, this connects Lokmanya Nagar Metro Station to Sitabuldi Interchange. With this, the number of operational stations will increase to sixteen and it will give a leg up to enhancement of ridership.
Like other metro stations, these stations have concourse levels with ticketing counters, shops, childcare room, toilets, drinking water facility, utility services etc. The platforms are on the second floor and one can reach there using lifts and escalators. Special arrangements have been made for making the stations friendly for senior citizens and specially-abled. Special green features of the station are 100% rainwater harvesting and biodigesters.
The inspection by Commissioner Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) has since been already completed and his certification is awaited. Thereafter, the stations will be thrown open for passenger services, once the operations of the Metro rail are resumed post invocation of suspension by the government.
