Public and yet not so completely. An irony, for sure. Fare Fixation Committee's report on Mumbai Metro fares has been made public, but hasn't been shared with the public.
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.
Within a week's time, escalators at the Mumbai Monorail stations between Wadala Depot and Chembur will be ready for public use.
The monorail's second phase on the 10.24-km stretch between Wadala and Jacob Circle may gain momentum as the commissioner of railway safety (CRS), central circle, is likely to give approval to the MMRDA to launch girders above the railway tracks.
The official said they were also planning a Metro railway line from Lokhandwala to SEEPZ and Kanjurmarg, to link the eastern and western suburbs. Earlier, the 13.14km route was to be taken up as part of the Mono railway master plan, but the MMRDA has decided to put the development of more Mono railway corridors on the backburner till the first 19.22-km Chembur-Wadala-Jacob Circle route, work on which is on, is commissioned and run.
