RITES appointed as Consultant for Metro Carshed for Indore and Bhopal Metro

Bhopal, India (Urban Transport News): Metro work in Madhya Pradesh is now catching pace. Madhya Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (MPMRCL) has appointed Railway consultancy firm RITES Limited to build metro depots for Bhopal and Indore Metro Rail Projects. MPMRC has selected RITES Limited through the e-tendering process.

It is pertinent to mention here that RITES Limited has vast experience in the set-up of metro car sheds as it had also acted as a consultant to build metro depots in Delhi and Lucknow. The RITES will soon start the work of designing a project report and depot layout plan for the new depots. Apart from this, RITES has also been given the responsibility to submit a report after assessing the power supply for the proposed new metro depots.

Actually, two metro rail projects are presently being implemented in Bhopal and Indore cities under Madhya Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation Limited. About 30 km of two approved metro corridors are being constructed from AIIMS to Karond Chauraha and Bhadbhada intersection to Ratnagiri Tirahe in Bhopal.

About 31.5 km of construction work of the approved Metro Ring Corridor (Bengali Square-Bhanwarsala-Airport-Palasia-Bengali Square) is being done at Indore. Tenders are being issued for Bhopal and Indore metro rail stations moving towards the next phase of construction.

In December last year, the Madhya Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation Limited restructured in line with other Metro Rail Authority to act as a single body for executing metro projects in Madhya Pradesh state. Earlier it was known as Madhya Pradesh Metro Rail Co. Limited. Now, it has become a special purpose vehicle and a joint venture between the Government of India and the Government of Madhya Pradesh.

A new logo has been created for Madhya Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation Limited. It has included the three primary colors of the spectrum i.e. blue, red, and green. The blue color signifies responsibility, the red color indicates energy and the green color indicates safety. The three letters displayed in the Metro's "logo" indicate the line tracks and various dots of the metro stations.
