Indore. If everything goes well and on time, Indore Metro will leave behind many metros as soon as it starts its run. Cities like Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Jaipur and Kanpur will lag behind in terms of distance covered. Metro may already be operating in these cities, but they are operating on less than the proposed distance of the first phase of Indore. Although the second phase work is also proposed in many cities, but they are still running in the files, whereas the Chief Minister has already fixed 15 August 2023, the date of launch of Metro in Indore. In such a situation, if the Indore Metro is operated by the scheduled date, then it will cover more distance than the metro of many cities.
- 17 km distance in first phase
The total length of Indore Metro is proposed to be 31.4 km. A target has been set to complete this in four phases by 2025. The Priority Corridor is being constructed in the first two phases. This corridor of about 17 km will be from the airport to Shaheed Park on the Ring Road. Presently its work has started and it is to be completed by 15th August 2023. The same date has been fixed for operation on it.
- Short distance metro operating in these cities
In fact, after the completion of the first phase in many cities, short distance metro is being operated. If seen from the point of view of Indore, then Jaipur Metro 11.94, Kanpur Metro 8.98, Mumbai Metro 11.4 and Ahmedabad Metro are running on a track of 6.5 km.
