The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority has also started working on finding the source of connection to connect several lines like 4, 4A, and 9 corridors with more locations. According to a report by DNA, several consultants are working on pointing out the link between these metro corridors and more locations. There are plans to enhance frameworks and structures for this. This project by MMRDA will focus on identifying the locations to build foot-over bridges and underpasses. In fact, these consultants will help in DPR preparations too.

All You Need To Know About The Project On Metro 4:

  • A 32.3 km long metro 4 corridor is getting constructed between Wadala and Kasarvadwali.
  • Along with this, a new track is also coming between Gaumukh and Kasarvadavali.

More Updates On This Infrastructure Development:

  • The 2A and 7 lines of the Mumbai metro can accommodate about 3 lakh commuters every day. But unfortunately, about half of this footfall is travelling on these lines. The reason behind this is a bad connection between the lines.
  • The good news is that the construction for better connectivity has already started. The authorities are working on building foot-over bridges near the 2A and 7 lines.
  • Goregaon Station of the metro 7 line will get foot-over bridges. This will link the line with the Ram Mandir station.
