Vijayawada: The Amaravati Metro, with its changed dynamics, has started working on a revised plan to connect Gannavaram airport and Krishna Canal (KC Canal) junction. Amaravati Metro Rail Corporation (AMRC) has invited RFP for consultants to prepare DPR, for the proposed four corridors in the first phase. The AMRC has stated that the revised proposal will reduce the time to reach Guntur district while freeing the air travellers from their dependence on taxis and the hassles involved.
As per the new proposal of AMRC, another 17 kilometres would be added to the proposed 26 kilometres corridor. As per the earlier proposals of AMRC, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) invited open e-tenders on November 28, last year for the Rs 1,800 crore work on construction of Pundit Nehru Bus Stand (PNBS)-Nidamanuru corridor and PNBS-Penamaluru corridor for a stretch of 13 kilometers and 12 kilometers respectively.
