MADURAI: The tender for preparing the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for Madurai metro rail project has been awarded to Aarvee Associates for 1.35 crore. It will be completed by June and sent to the Union government for approval. The exact locations and number of stations of the much-awaited urban transport facility will be revealed in the DPR, said Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) officials.
A week ago, in the state budget, the Tamil Nadu government had allocated 8,500 crore for the first phase of Madurai metro which is planned between Thirumangalam and Othakadai for a distance of 31km. Of the four companies which submitted bids for the DPR, Aarvee Associates bagged the tender on Sunday.
