Metro services would soon make way into Gujarat’s Surat with the Centre on March 8 approving Phase-I of the Surat Metro Project under which two corridors will be constructed at a cost of Rs 12,000 crore. The project, which will be completed in next five years by the Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation (GMRC), will be funded by the Central and the state government.
