MMRDA PLANS TO COMPLETE SECOND MONORAIL ON A FAST TRACK

21-may-pro-3Travelling woes of faraway suburbs of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region are soon to be over. With the officials of MMRDA putting the Thane-Kalyan-Bhiwandi monorail route on the fast track, these towns will soon see monorail connectivity. Besides, work on the third metro corridor is also likely to gain momentum. Travelling to faraway suburbs falling on the monorail route is soon going to be a reality. MMRDA officials are putting the Thane-Kalyan-Bhiwandi monorail route on the fast track and these towns will soon see monorail connectivity. The authority will soon be sending the detailed project report of the second monorail corridor between Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan as well as the third metro corridor between Colaba and Bandra to the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation for approval. Once the corporation approves it, the report as well as the bid documents will be submitted to the centre for seeking grants. The authority has already finalised the project report for the 19.85-km long third line of metro which will be partially underground between Colaba and Mahalaxmi. Union minister for urban development S Jaipal Reddy had earlier promised that the centre would definitely help in the construction of the third metro. According to Gaikwad, unlike the third line of metro, the monorail may not require a viability gap at all.
