Consort Digital has been awarded a contract for deployment of MCX ONE mission-critical solution for Pune Metro Line – 3 project. Pune Metro Line 3 is the first metro project in India to be built under the public-private partnership (PPP) with a budget of USD 1.2 Billion after the New Metro Rail Policy of 2017.
The Pune Metro Region Development Authority (PMRDA) has awarded the contract to the consortium of TRIL Urban Transport (a Tata Group Company) and Siemens Project Ventures GmbH (a subsidiary of Siemens Financial Services). The project would be developed and operated on design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis by a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) Company called the Pune IT City Metro Limited.
The 23.3 Km Pune Metro Line – 3 will connect Hinjewadi to Shivajinagar with Civil Court being the interchange station. Pune Metro Line -3 commonly known as the ‘Puneri Metro’ will be elevated with 23 stations with a depot close to Maan village. Once operational, the Pune metro will provide a commute to around 2.6 lakh people. The Metro rail project will act as the backbone of the public transport system, thereby, reducing traffic congestion, pollution, weather extremities, travel time, travel cost, etc.
Having been awarded the contract of Pune Line 1 and 2 back in 2020, Consort Digital has increased its presence further in the cultural and historical capital of Maharashtra – Pune, with the Pune Metro Line 3 project.
