Metro-3 is construction has grabbed a lot of attention in the city and there have been a number of controversies and stories linked with it. Now, looking into the future, it has been confirmed that Metro Line 4 will go over the '2000-crore Goregaon-Mulund Link Road (GMLR).

The 14,549 Cr project (Wadala-Kasarvadavli) Metro line 4 was thought of as a threat to the GMLR project, as the alignment of both projects goes over the arterial LBS Road in the eastern suburbs.

Now the two agencies have come up with a solution to this: The Metro will be constructed by MMRDA over GMLR.

As reported in Mid-Day, a civic official said,”Projects can be constructed on the same alignment, 6 to 8 meters above each other. However, for GMLR, piers will be constructed slightly at a right angle to the Metro piers so that the two don't touch each other. By doing this the cost estimation of the two also remains the same.”

The cost of constructing the Goregaon-Mulund Link Road was about 2,000 Cr and the Metro-4 project has cost about 14,000 Cr and both the agencies have come to a settlement with the height differences of both the constructions.
