The Surat Metro is a rapid transit system proposed for the city of Surat in the Indian state of Gujarat. If completed on schedule, the four-line, 100-kilometre (62 mi) metro will enter operation in 2018.

Development[edit]

In August 2012, the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) proposed four rail routes for the metro project. The first of these would be the 19-kilometre (12 mi) route from Dumas Resorts to Sarthana Octroi Naka, followed by a line from Sayan to Surat, a line following Surat's outer ring road, and a route along the banks of the River Tapi from Kamrej to Ambika Niketan.[2] The Gujarat state government approved the project later that same month.[1]
