Under flak for the tardy progress on its elevated Metro lines, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has now come up with an ambitious plan for extending the Metro line. The planning authority has proposed the city’s first underground Metro line, which will run from Colaba to Bandra till Santacruz Electronics Export Processing Zone (SEEPZ).
To expedite the work of the second phase of the Metro railway, the Urban Development Department has decided to offer Transfer of Development Right (TDR) of 25% to the landowners of the slums that have proved impeding in the alignment of the Metro route.
The Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd route is to be the biggest metro routes in the city. Just like the first metro, Reliance Infrastructure-led consortium Mumbai Metro Transport Pvt Ltd (MMTPL) has bagged the contract to construct and run the metro for around three decades.
