MMRDA sanctions Rs 35,400 cr for Mumbai Metro mega expansion

mumbai-metroThe MMRDA has sanctioned Rs 35,400 crore for a 118-km expansion of Metro network in Mumbai.

The new areas for which money has been sanctioned include Dahisar-Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd Metro-2 corridor (Rs 12,000 crore and 40 km), Wadala-Ghatkopar-Thane-Kasarvadavali Metro-4 via Wadala GPO and R.A.Kidwai Marg (Rs 12,000 crore and 40 km), Dahisar-E-Andheri-E-Bandra-E Metro-5 corridor (Rs 8,100 crore and 27 km long) and Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Road Metro-6 corridor (Rs 3,300 crore and 11 km long)

At present, Mumbai has only a single line of metro – from Ghatkopar in the central suburbs to Versova in the Western suburbs – a distance of around 40 minutes.

The Development Authority has also accepted two new Detailed Project Reports – one for the 16.5-km Andheri-E to Dahisar-E Metro corridor and the other for 18.6-km Dahisar to D.N.Nagar Metro corridor – prepared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation and has recommended these two corridors estimated at Rs 4,737 crore and Rs 4,994 crore respectively for the approval of the state government.

The Authority has recommended, to the State, raising of funds from various financial institutions such as World Bank, Japan International Cooperation Agency and other national and international financial institutions.

ROAD PROJECTS

The Authority further afforded administrative approval to the estimated expenditure of Rs 743.73 crore for the construction of three elevated roads to clear traffic chaos at Bandra-Kurla Complex and Santacruz-Chembur junctions.

The 1.3-km elevated road running from MTNL junction to LBS Flyover and the 3.45-km elevated road from Kurla (Kapadia Nagar) to Vakola near Western Express Highway (Rs 480.63 crore) will help clear SCLR junction.

Similarly another 1.9-km elevated road from Bharat Diamond Bourse in ‘G’ Block to Vakola junction near Western Express Highway (Rs 263.09 crore) will help decongest BKC junction as the motorists will be able to reach Vakola straight from the ‘G’ Block in the Bandra-Kurla Complex avoiding BKC junction.

The Authority further gave boost to the Bandra-Kurla Complex by demarcating 20 Hectares of plot in ‘G Text’ Block for an International Finance Service Centre and approving Rs 95.57 crore expenditure in order to afford smart status to the complex by making it wi-fi able and providing smart parking, integrated building monitoring system, command and control centre, energy efficient street lights, bus service etc.

The Authority has also approved the development of Kalyan Growth Centre and the estimated expenditure of Rs 1,089 crore for the same. This growth centre will be well connected by road and rail routes and will create job opportunities outside Mumbai and contribute to balanced development of the metropolitan region what with the MMRDA taking up infrastructural development sooner than later.

The metropolitan region has also received nod from the Authority to the road development work estimated at Rs 60.61 crore in areas such as Palghar, Kalyan, Ambarnath, Karjat and Kulgaon-Badlapur.

The Authority also approved the submission of draft regional plan to the Metropolitan Planning Committee. The draft contains proposals related to population, employment, land use, housing, transportation and environment.
