The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has been working on a war-footing as far as Phase-II of the Monorail corridor from Wadala to Sant Gadge Maharaj Chowk corridor is concerned. The Authority recently launched three crucial spans over the Harbour Line from MbPT Yard and Wadala. All the three spans of 34.74m, 41.74m and 40.24m in length are 9.6 meters wide and the cumulative weight of these spans is about 700 tones.
“This was indeed an arduous task considering the length and weight of the spans. However, the same was carried out with some finesse”, said Dilip Kawathkar, Joint Project Director (PR), MMRDA. “With most permissions and clearances in hand, we can expect completion of the project sooner than later”, he concluded.
The Phase-I of the Monorail corridor from Chembur to Wadala was launched last February.
