Project expected to complete by the end of 2015
Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has received approval from Central Railway (CR) to proceed with the second phase of the Mumbai monorail above the suburban railway tracks.
“The Central Railway gave a clearance last month to construct the monorail viaduct over the railway tracks at Currey Road. Work on the piers has started,” said, UPS Madan, Metropolitan Commissioner, MMRDA.
The MMRDA needed the Central Railway’s clearance for the second phase of the monorail from Wadala to Jacob Circle near Mahalaksmi at two places —Wadala and Currey Road. The development authority had received a green signal for the Wadala crossing, where the work is already underway, a few months ago. However, the clearance for the Currey Road crossing was delayed further due to confusion between the railway and the MMRDA.
MMRDA expects the project to be completed by the end of 2015.
