Brijesh Dixit is the managing director of the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (Maha-Metro)
The metropolis of Pune has indeed become my karma bhoomi. As managing director of Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (Maha-Metro), I am heading the team which is committed to the time and within cost completion of the Pune metro rail project. Once completed, the project is destined to become a lifeline of Punekars.
Pune metro unmistakably seeks to reverse the trend of severe traffic congestion and pollution by providing a safe, secure, convenient, comfortable, affordable, inclusive and environment-friendly solution to the vexed and rapidly worsening urban transport problem bedeviling Punekars.
The Pune metro project developed by Maha-Metro is constructed at a total cost of ₹11,420 crore with equity funding in equal proportion from the government of India and the Maharashtra government. It is worth noting that both the municipal corporations of the city — Pune, and Pimpri-Chinchwad — have come forward with sizable grants to ensure timely completion of the project. The debt funding for the project is provided by AFD, the French funding agency.
The state-of-the-art modern metro rail system with a designed speed of 80 kmph, having modern signaling and telecommunication system and modern metro cars, is constructed as a two corridor project totaling 31.25 km in length; 30 stations and 2 metro-car maintenance depots.
