INDORE: Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday laid foundation stone for two projects of Indore Metro Rail under which 16 stations and 11-kilometer-long viaduct will be developed at a cost of Rs 1,416.85 crore.
"Metro rail will bring more prosperity in Indore. The facility will offer employment to around 2,000 people after it starts operation," Chouhan said. "The design of Metro rail will be kept in a way that it can further incorporate three-layers (a double-decker bridge or three-level crossing as flyover-cum-metro rail viaduct) to meet the future demands," he said.
