Mumbai: Seeking to scotch speculation over name of the metro service launched in the megapolis recently, Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Saturday said it will be called "Mumbai Metro".
Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Saturday said the Mumbai Metro would be extended till Thane and the final project report would be available with the government in a month's time.
MUMBAI: Reliance Infrastructure and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) are likely to terminate the concession agreement for the 32-km-long Metro II from Charkop to Mankhurd via Bandra, it has been learned.
The first aerial shot of Mumbai Metro. The Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro service, which was earlier expected to kick off by April 24, will be delayed as the authorities are waiting for a nod from the Commissioner of Railway Safety.
With its air-conditioned coaches, access to which will be through smart-card tickets, lifts and escalators at overhead stations, it promises to change the way Mumbaikars travel. A month later, a Metro train will hit the tracks between Versova and Ghatkopar.
Your ride on Mumbai’s metro is still a while away. Though chief minister Prithviraj Chavan had said last year that part of the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar metro route would be thrown open to the public in March this year, officials at the ground level said the time given by the chief minister was ‘too optimistic’.
With actual work on the 32-km-long Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd (CBM) Metro corridor yet to commence, the Mumbai Metro Transport Private Limited (MMTPL) that has been awarded the contract, has written to Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, stating that the project will not only miss the 2013 deadline by nearly a year, even construction cost is bound to go up.
