The Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi, on Saturday, December 24, 2016, inaugurated two Metro projects, Mumbai Trans Harbour Link, flyovers at Kalanagar Junction and Kurla-Vakola elevated road at 3 pm at MMRDA Ground, Bandra-Kurla Complex, Bandra (East).
The State Government has been implementing Metro Rail projects across the city of Mumbai and its metropolitan Region and has approved two more metro projects – The 23.5-km DN Nagar to Mankhurd Metro-2B corridor and the 32-km Wadala-Ghatkopar-Mulund-Thane-Kasarvadavali Metro-4 corridor. The two Metro corridors are aimed at reducing overcrowding in suburban trains and relieving the city of its vehicular traffic woes.
The 6-lane and 22-km long crucial Mumbai Trans Harbour Link project will establish connectivity between South Mumbai and main land and will help develop main land and parts of Raigad District.
The two flyovers at Kalanagar Junction, Bandra – one leading towards Sea Link and the other approaching Bandra-Kurla Complex are expected to provide seamless connectivity to the Complex as also to reduce traffic congestion in the Complex.
The 5-km long Kurla-Vakola Elevated Road – an extension to Santacruz-Chembur Link Road – will not only provide better connectivity to the Bandra-Kurla Complex but also will de-congest traffic in the area– read the official press release.
