MUMBAI (Metro Rail News): A committee has been constituted under the chairmanship of state chief secretary Sanjay Kumar to recommend an appropriate site for a Metro car shed. It will examine whether the Kanjurmarg or Aarey plot is more appropriate, will the Kanjurmarg plot suffice for Metro Lines 3, 4 and 6, and how best to integrate Metro Lines 3 and 6 for smooth operations. It will submit its report within a month.
The committee includes the environment secretary, the BMC commissioner, the divisional commissioner of Konkan, the transport commissioner, the administrative director, MMRC, a professor at Centre for Urban Science and Engineering, IIT-Bombay, among others.
The Uddhav Thackarey led government decided to move the car shed from the much politicised and controversial Aarey site to Kanjurmarg. The state government had planned to build an integrated car shed for lines 3,4 and 6 at Kanjurmarg, which would also serve as an integration with the proposed line 14 but the High Court’s decision is going to make the government change its decision.
