The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) is likely to award bids worth Rs11,000 crore for the construction of Colaba-Bandra-Seepz underground metro by the end of September this year.
Thus, there is a possibility that the car depot location may not be changed despite protests by Aarey Milk Colony residents and activists.
The technical evaluation of bids is likely to be through by mid-September, followed by awarding of work orders by September end. However, the construction on the underground project will commence only during the first quarter of 2016.
Although the report on Aarey car depot is yet to be submitted to the chief minister to take a final call, metropolitan commissioner UPS Madan on Monday said it would be done soon. More info
