The Systra-Aecom-Egis Rail-Rites consortium will work on the first two lines of the project in Nagpur, which has more than two million inhabitants.

The first line - nearly 20km long - will link the city’s two main gateways from north to south with 17 stations, of which 15 will be elevated. The second line, which will be 18.5km long, will run east to west and will have 19 elevated stations.
