Nagpur: The work of the Sitabuldi to Prajapati Nagar corridor of Maha Metro is under way at a rapid pace. Construction work has begun on this route. Barricades in most areas have been removed during construction on this route. Barricades were erected to prevent any trouble for those travelling through the area while the project was in progress. But as the work of the project has been completed in many areas, the barricades have been removed.
Work on the metro route between Sitabuldi to Prajapati Nagar has been completed and 79% of the Viaduct work has also been completed. A total of 9 metro stations are proposed on this route of 8.3km between Sitabuldi Interchange to Prajapati Nagar Metro Station namely Cotton Market, Nagpur Railway Station, Dosar Vaishya Chowk, Agrasen Chowk, Chitar Oli, Telephone Exchange Chowk, Ambedkar Chowk, Vaishnodevi Chowk and Prajapati Nagar.
Central Avenue is a major route in the east and west areas of Nagpur. Besides this metro route, the main trading areas are Gandhibagh, Itwari, Maskasath, etc. Transportation is important for these areas and this is definitely going to be done through the metro service. Since Nagpur’s Central Avenue area is commercial in nature, a large number of vehicles pass through and traffic is usually heavy.
As the city of Nagpur is expanding, the traffic on this route also increased steadily. Due to the traffic congestion in the market, the Metro took great care when implementing the project. It will now be easier for the people to visit or access places such as Mayo Hospital, Railway Station, Cotton Market, Itwari Bazaar etc after the commencement of metro on this route.
