We are proud to announce that the DAMM TetraFlex® TETRA radio communication solution has been selected for the new, prestigious state-of-the-art Pune Metro Rail Line 3 Project by the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA).

The Pune Metro Rail Line 3 project, which will be built on a unique PPP model worth USD 1.2 Billion is the first Metro project in India under the PPP model after the 2017 New Metro Rail Policy. The consortium of TRIL Urban Transport (a Tata Group Company) and Siemens Project Ventures have been awarded the contract by PMRDA to develop the Metro corridor from Hinjewadi to Shivajinagar.
The completely elevated Line 3 will be owned by Pune Metro Rail Development Authority and commuters of this line will be benefited to get an interchange at Civil Court if they wish to move on Line 1 & 2 of Maha Metro. Once operational, Line 3 is expected to have a daily ridership of 2.6 mio. people.
