Gujarat’s Chief Minister recently visited the construction site situated between Narmada Canal Station and Koba Circle Station to inspect the progress. The Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation (GMRC) awarded Afcons the construction contract for Package C1 in the fourth quarter of 2020. This package encompasses the elevated section from Motera Stadium to GNLU, featuring eight stations at key locations such as Koteshwar Road, Vishwakarma College, Tapovan Circle, Narmada Canal, Koba Circle, Juna Koba, Koba Gam, and GNLU.
