Mumbai city

With the completion of various infrastructure and transportation projects in the financial capital of India, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has turned its attention to projects in the Mumbai outskirts that are either shaping up or in the nascent stages of execution.

The Mumbai outskirts, also known as Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), will see projects like the extended Mumbai Urban Infrastructure Project (MUIP), Multi Modal Corridor connecting Virar and Alibaug, Kalyan Ring Road, Shirgaon-Padgha-Titwala-Badlapur Link, Neral-Dasturi Naka-Matheran Road, Khopoli Bypass Road, etc.

A senior MMRDA official, however clarified that it is just a coincidence that projects in Mumbai are getting over and work on MMR projects has begun.

Recently completed projects in Mumbai include Mumbai Monorail (Phase 1), Mumbai Metro I, Santa Cruz Chembur Link Road, Panjarpol Ghatkopar (Mankhurd) Link Road, Eastern Freeway, etc. In projects like the Monorail (Phase 2), Kherwadi flyover, etc. construction work has been considerably done.

Feasibility studies are underway to undertake road projects like Kalyan Ring Road, Shirgaon-Padgha-Titwala-Badlapur Link, Neral-Dasturi Naka-Matheran Road, Khopoli Bypass Road, etc. in the Eastern Mumbai District.

Under the extended MUIP, various roads, flyovers and creek bridges are being constructed apart from the development of nine roads in Vasai, Virar, Mira Road, Bhayander, Dombivli, Kalyan, Ambernath, Karjat and Badlapur. Similarly, six flyovers are also under construction in these areas, including Thane, along with a rail over bridge on Thane-Belapur Road.

The shift in focus of MMRDA is also because of the increase in population in the MMR which is outside greater Mumbai limits. The development authority had resolved in 2008 that it will focus on the regional infrastructure projects for overall development of the region.
