DNA, Navi Mumbai published that Metro Rail Project Delayed. An insight on this news.

Navi Mumbai Metro Rail Project Delayed

The proposed ambitious Navi Mumbai Metro Rail Project gets delayed further since there aren't many tenders that have been received so far. The City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) has failed to receive more than 17 tenders though they had invited them from all over the globe.

Appointment of the General Consultant for the project still waits as the lowest tender would do the honors. CIDCO had expected to appoint the General Consultant in the first week of October. The last date for the tender applications was 18th October. But only 17 tenders have been received so far. Thus CIDCO fails to meet the deadline and the ambitious Navi Mumbai Metro Rail Project gets delayed further.

Navi Mumbai Metro Rail Project

In order to improve the traffic and transportation scenario in Mumbai, the Government of Maharashtra planned to explore the present transit systems and upgrade them to cater to the next decades. They planned for an Alternative Mass Transit System, which would be efficient, viable and environmentally friendly.

In context with this, the Government of Maharashtra along with the Indo – German Technical Co-operation carried a detailed survey to construct potential and economically viable alternatives. According to the survey it was observed that the MRT Corridor of Belapur – Kharghar – Taloja – Pendhar – Kalamboli – Khandeshwar is a potential developing corridor.

Thus it was finalized that the Navi Mumbai Rail Project from Belapur to Pendhar would be considered as LINE – 1, and Kalamboli to Khandeshwar as LINE – 2. On the other hand the Interlink between Pendhar and Kalamboli would be the LINE – 3. This ambitious project would commission in 2013.
