The First Trial Run Of The Amaravati Metro Rail In February 2019


As we already know, The Amaravati Metro Rail Corporation (AMRC) had gotten into an agreement with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for the implementation of Vijayawada metro rail project. Very recently, representatives from both the organisations signed an agreement to this effect.

AMRC will start its first trail run of the Metro Rail through Eluru road corridor by February 2019. The project is expected to be completed in four years’ time and the TDP Government had earlier released Rs.300 crore for the purpose of acquiring land for this mega project. The district administration is speeding up the required procedures and it will complete the process within the next 2-3 months.

According to the details of the agreement, AMRC is the owner and administrator of the local Metro Rail project while the DMRC is the Executive Agency and DMRC alone will come up with all the designs, call for Global tenders, select the contractors and sign the agreement with the contractors. Apart from these, DMRC will also be responsible for the entire supervision and management of the works corresponding to this venture.
