CM okays Metro 2 to Dahisar, new coastal transport study



Mumbai: The Devendra Fadnavis government on Friday decided to extend the second metro route between Mankhurd and Charkop via Bandra to Dahisar, and build the 22km trans-harbour link between Sewri and Nhava on a cash contract basis, said sources who were present there.

The earlier bids to develop these projects are either stuck or have failed in the past.

Fadnavis and senior government officials also reportedly decided to conduct a fresh comprehensive study on traffic projections for the proposed coastal road as well as water transport projects on the city’s west coast.

In his first-ever review of Mumbai projects, Fadnavis asked senior officials of the infrastructure and transport agencies to chalk out a time-bound implementation programme. He also put the Navi Mumbai airport and Metro-III on top on his agenda. More info
