Mumbai Metro, Monorail projects to meet Dec 2010 deadline
Mumbai: The first phase of Mumbai Metro
and Monorail which will benefit the suburban population in the
metropolis will meet its December 2010 deadline.
Addressing a press conference at the suburban
collectorate office, Mumbai Suburban Guardian Minister Naseem
Khan said the work on the two mega projects is in advanced
stages and would meet the deadline.
"80 per cent of Mumbai`s population lives in the suburbs
and they would be benefited with the completion of these
projects. The first phase covers Andheri-Versova-Ghatkopar
through Metro and Chembur-Wadala section through Monorail,"
Khan said after reviewing the Infrastructure development
projects currently being undertaken in the suburbs.
He said the Santacruz-Chembur Link Road (SCLR) and the
Eastern Freeway would be delayed due to hitches like
facilitating the rehabilitation of displaced people.
Khan said the Milan sub-way Rail Over Bridge (ROB)
would become operational by July 2010 easing the problems
arising due to flooding during monsoon.
Similarly, the Rs 400 crore project of beautification of
area along the Mithi River covering 6 km from Mahim to CST
bridge is also underway and would be completed by December
this year, he said.
The Minister said the state government has approved Rs
42,000 crore worth projects to upgrade Mumbai`s infrastructure
