Maha Metro MD Dr Dixit Meets today met Union Minister of State for Finance Dr BhagwatKarad at New Delhi. Dr Dixit briefedthe Union Minister about the Detailed Project Report (DPR) being prepared for the Aurangabad Project. It may be recalled that Maha Metro has now been tasked with preparing Detail Project Report for Metro Rail Project for the city of Aurangabad.
Dr Dixit gave presentation on the status of the proposed DPR.. After successfully implementing Metro Rail Projects in Nagpur & Pune and having prepared DPR for similar projects in the cities of Nasik, Thane and Warangal (State of Telangan), Maha Metro is now working on similar projects in the city of Aurangabad.
As part of the proposed project for which DPR is being prepared, two Metro sections – Waluj to Shendra MIDC and Bidkin to Harsul are proposed to be constructed. In fact given Maha Metro expertise in implementing infrastructure projects like RoB, RuB, other than Metro Rail Project, the organization has also been asked to prepare plan for Fly-over, which will run parallel to Metro Track, as has been executed in Nagpur. Metro via-duct and fly-over will run parallel from Waluj to Shendra MIDC of Aurangabad. A comprehensive DPR will be prepared for fly-over and two lines.
In that regard, a meeting was held at Aurangabad in January 2022 and was chaired by Dr Karad. The meeting was then attended by Aurangabad Municipal Corporation and senior officials from other local & civic departments, besides Maha Metro officers.
The double decker at Aurangabad will be constructed on the lines of similar project in Nagpur. Maha Metro has executed Multi-Layer Transportation Project on Wardha Road and is in the process of doing so on Kamptee Road. Three-layer transportation project has been implemented on Wardha Road with existing road at the bottom, fly-over over it and Metro route at the top of all.
Similar project is also being implemented on Kamptee Road which also includes the unique four-layer transportation structure at Gaddigodam, which has existing road and Railway track as the first two levels, followed by Fly-over and Metro via-duct at a height of 24 meters. Multi-Layer Transportation Project on Wardha Road was inaugurated on 13th November 2020.
