The much-awaited Pune Metro Project commenced its work on May 27 under the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MAHA-METRO). Work on the first stretch from Pimpri-Chinchwad to Range Hills has begun with the stretch measuring up to about 10.75 km

The tender had been offered to Hyderabad-based Nagarjuna Construction Company (NCC) who is also working for Nagpur Metro Project. To start off with the work, MAHA-METRO chose this stretch as it is the safest one with no major hurdles of land acquisition or any other issues. The Metro route will begin from PCMC and go through Tukaram Nagar, Bhosari (Nashik Phata), Kasarwadi, Phugewadi, Dapodi, Bopodi and Khadki, to Range Hills.

The firm had conducted a survey of the route before starting the work. They have got a 28-month deadline to complete the construction of this stretch.
