Mumbai Dug up: Work on crucial metro line 3 takes a toll on local businesses

Read Time:1 Minute, 2 Second

The construction of Mumbai Metro’s line 3 has led to a 200m stretch on Lamington Road, which connects Dadar and Girgaon Chowpatty, being dug up one lane and barricaded on the other. This has resulted in half of the shops being shut. Also affected are the pedestrians.
Location: Lamington Road, near the Grant Road railway station in south Mumbai.
Project: Mumbai Metro’s line 3, also known as Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Line, which is a 33.5-km underground metro corridor running along Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ. The corridor has 27 key stations, out of which 26 will be underground.
Dug-up for: Construction of the underground Grant Road Metro station.
Implementing agency: Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Ltd, a joint venture of the central governments and the Maharashtra government.
Importance: Mumbai Metro’s line 3 would be running along the Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ corridor connecting Mumbai’s key financial hubs. Once implemented, MML-3 would reduce traffic by about 35 per cent or by 4.5 lakh vehicles leading to the decongestion of roads and the travel time would be reduced to 50 minutes from 100 minutes on the route.

Total initial cost: Rs 23,000 crore
