Mumbai: The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has been working on a war-footing as far as Phase-II of the Monorail corridor from Wadala to Sant Gadge Maharaj Chowk corridor is concerned. The Authority yesterday launched three crucial spans over the Harbour Line from MbPT Yard and Wadala. It was a
job well done after 4 hours and 32 minutes’ grueling task. All the three spans of 34.74m, 41.74m and 40.24m in length are 9.6 meters wide and the cumulative weight of the three spans is about 700 tones.
“This was indeed an arduous task considering the length and weight of the spans. However, the same was carried out with some finesse”, said Mr. Dilip Kawathkar, Joint Project Director (PR), MMRDA. “With most permissions and clearances in hand, we can expect completion of the project sooner than later”, concluded Mr. Kawathkar.
The Phase-I of the Monorail corridor from Chembur to Wadala was launched last February.
