In another major milestone, the Pune Metro is slated to undertake its first trial run on the route between Vanaz and Ramwadi on Friday. The Metro rail will cover the 5-km stretch from Vanaz to Garware College.
On July 10, the Pune Metro had conducted a ‘technical run’ of the train from Vanaz to Garware College. Now, it is ready for a trial run on the same stretch. “We have prepared for the trial run on Friday. However, the exact details of it will be shared later,” said an official of Pune Metro project.
Earlier, Pune Metro had carried out a trial run on the 6-km stretch from Pimpri Chinchwad to Phugewadi, on the route to Swargate. Work on the remaining stretch is on the fast track, with the construction of an underground tunnel for Metro rail that has covered more than half of the distance from Shivajinagar to Budhwar Peth. The deadline for the project has, however, been extended after work was hit due to the Covid-related lockdown.
