NAVI MUMBAI (Metro Rail News): CIDCO appointed Consultants will submit the DPR for the Navi Mumbai metro Lines 2, 3 & 4 very soon, connecting to the Navi Mumbai International Airport.
Inauguration of Line 1
The 11.1-kilometre-long Line 1 was opened for commercial operations on 17th November and received a great response. Over 15,000 commuters use the newly inaugurated line to travel from Belapur to Taloja. As per the daily revenue report, nearly Rs 39 lakhs have been generated so far through the sale of tickets.
Navi Mumbai metro boasts state-of-the-art Air-conditioned coaches and entry and exit arrangements on both the north & south sides of the metro stations. Shops in the concourse area for commercial purposes are a crucial feature of the Navi Mumbai Metro. The platforms have been equipped with CCTV, a passenger announcement system, and special toilets for Disabled persons.
The three new lines to be instituted are as follows:
|Line 2: Khandeshwar to Taloja MIDC
|Line 3: Pendhar to Midc Taloja
|Line 4: Khandeshwar to NMIA
The new lines will add a new paradigm of connectivity in the urban dwellings of Navi Mumbai and ensure the commuter’s seamless travel and commute.
DPR Expected in 2 months
The DPR for the lines is expected to arrive in 2 months. A DPR for the line had already existed, but it needs revisions owing to the delays. A fresh DPR would inform the authorities about the possible alignment for the upcoming metro limes and the budget and timeline.
All four lines are expected to cost over 11,000 crore with an expenditure of Rs 3,063 Crore. The responsibility for the same lies with the CIDCO.
