MUMBAI (Metro Rail News): The Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation (Maha-Metro) has proposed the names ‘Aqua line’ for the Vanaz-Ramwadi metro corridor and ‘Purple line’ for the Pimpri-Chincwad to Swargate corridor.
Brijesh Dixit, managing director, Maha-Metro, said, “We have proposed these two names for the metro corridors. As Vanaz to Ramwadi metro corridor is passing through the Mula-Mutha riverbed, we have suggested the name ‘aqua line’. Purple color represents happiness. So considering this, the name ‘Purple line’ has been proposed for Pimpri-Chincwad to Swargate corridor.
“It is a norm that various metro lines have to be given names on the basis of color. This will help the commuters identify their metro trains. We hope to complete the work of the priority sections by December,” added Dixit.
