Uddhav Thackeray visits Metro-3 station

Mumbai Metro is expected to offer major relief to the commuters and offer smooth pocket-friendly transit. On Saturday, Chief minister Uddhav Thackeray reviewed the on-going Metro-3 (Colaba-Bandra-Seepz) work. He along with his son, Aaditya Thackeray (who is also the state tourism and environment minister) visited Sahar Metro underground station to take an overall idea of the work.

The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (MMRCL) had started work on Metro 3 line (Colaba to Seepz) in 2015. It is a 33.5km stretch which will be fully underground. It was reported in January 2020 that 87 per cent of the tunnelling work has already been completed. In addition to this, MMRC has completed 48 per cent of the tunnelling work for the Sahar Metro station. It is also building a cross-over tunnel between Sahar Road station and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) station.

There is a lot of debate going on in regards to where the car shed for this metro line will be. Earlier proposal had suggested making it in Aarey. However, the current government is still scouting for alternatives.

Post this visit Aaditya Thackeray said that the Metro-Railway (Locals)-BEST buses will provide last-mile connectivity to Mumbaikars. He also tweeted that the Metro-3 work is progressing at a rapid pace. He even tweeted that all the infrastructure projects were going on at great pace.
