Two-thirds of Nagpur Metro will become operational With the completion of this 11 km long section of the Aqua Line, a total of 24.5 km of the Nagpur Metro Rail network has now become available, accounting for about two-thirds of the total Phase I network of the Nagpur Metro Rail project. On 7 March 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the 13.5 km segment of the Orange Line.

The 11 km section of the Reach III Aqua Line, which opened today, has six operational stations, namely Lokmanya Nagar, Bansi Nagar, Vasudev Nagar, Rachana Ring Road, Subhash Nagar, Ambazari Lake View, LAD Square, Shankar Nagar, Institute of Engineers, Jhansi Rani Square and finally Sitabuldi Interchange. The other five stations are expected to open in April 2020, according to the press release.

Line a Big Boost to the City The opening of the Aqua Line would give a major boost to academic institutions, industrial areas, residential colonies, among others. It will also provide significant links for residents of these areas to the north-south areas of the city, including but not limited to railway stations, the airport, interstate and intercity bus stations.

20 minutes of Metro journeys in just over 

Given the importance of places like Sitabuldi, Jhansi Rani Square, Ramdaspeth, Dharampeth, Hingna Road, Subhash Nagar, Vasudev Nagar, Lokmanya Nagar to name a few, and traffic congestion, the journey between Lokmanya Nagar and Sitabuldi currently takes more than 45 minutes.

Nagpur Metro is going to reduce this time significantly by more than half. You can move between these two places in just 20 minutes, and you just have to pay 20 for the same. It will also significantly reduce pollution and road fatalities in the city.

Commercial Services from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Commercial services on Aqua Line between Lokmanya Nagar Metro Station and Sitabuldi Interchange will begin at 2 p.m. today and continue until 8 p.m. Subsequently, commuters can use regular Metro Train services every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Train services are available every 30 minutes.
