The Maharashtra government has made a formal request to Prime Minister Modi to inaugurate the new Pune airport terminal along with four Metro stations on February 19. This move is anticipated to be a significant milestone in enhancing transportation infrastructure and connectivity in the region, reflecting the state’s commitment to fostering economic growth and development. With the inauguration ceremony poised to bring together key stakeholders and dignitaries, including state officials and representatives from the aviation and transportation sectors, it marks a pivotal moment in the advancement of Pune’s infrastructure landscape.
The Maharashtra government has made a formal request to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) for the inauguration of the new terminal building at Pune airport and four newly constructed Metro stations, announced Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Friday. With Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s scheduled visit to Satara for an event on February 19, state authorities are keen on leveraging this opportunity to highlight the completion of these significant projects in Pune city.
During his inspection of the new terminal building at Pune airport, Ajit Pawar emphasized the readiness of the infrastructure, stating that Prime Minister Modi’s visit to inaugurate a water scheme presents an ideal occasion for these inaugurations. “The new terminal building and four Metro stations are primed for inauguration. We are hopeful that the PMO will consider our request, and if necessary, inaugurate them remotely,” Pawar stated, underlining the substantial enhancement in passenger capacity and amenities offered by the new airport terminal, which pays homage to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s legacy.
Furthermore, Maha Metro officials confirmed that the nearly 6.5-kilometer stretch from Ruby Hall Clinic to Ramwadi, incorporating four strategically located stations, is prepared for inauguration. This development not only signifies progress in urban transportation but also aims to alleviate traffic congestion along Nagar Road, offering commuters a more efficient and convenient mode of travel within the city.
