MUMBAI (Metro Rail News): In a press conference on Thursday, MMRDA’s metropolitan commissioner SVR Srinivas said, “Mumbai metro line 3 will take at least another two to two-and-a-half years to complete as a lot of works remain other than the depot.”

“Another 1.5 km-long tunnel boring work on the 33.5 km line is pending, apart from construction of the stations and other works like signalling, telecommunications, overhead wires, and control center, among other things,” he added.

Mumbai’s Colaba-SEEPZ Metro rail line-3 could take upto two more years to complete as several tasks including some part of the tunnel boring work as well construction of stations, are still pending, a senior official of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has said.

Once completed, this first underground metro line of the city will provide connectivity to the city airport from south Mumbai and western suburbs, and reduce the burden on the locals living in nearby areas.

Srinivas informed that the MMRDA is conducting a study to extend the Chembur -Wadala -Jacob Circle monorail corridor by another 200-250 meters for connecting it with Mumbai metro line 3. ‘We will take decision about it within a month,’ he said.
