On Monday, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis cleared big-ticket projects for the financial capital, including an integrated multimodal system to connect the proposed Metro stations.
The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) 148th meeting of the board also cleared the appointment of the Indian Port Rail and Ropeway Corporation Ltd to prepare a detailed report for the ropeway projects between Malad and Marve and from Gorai to Borivali, each 4.5 km long.
The ropeway is vital to establish the East-West connectivity for the Metro and jetty works along the coast. This can also establish connectivity to Malad Metro station on Metro-2A corridor, Borivali station on the Western Railway, Metro-2A, and Gorai jetty.
MMRDA said, “The ropeway is successful in New York, Colombia, and Turkey,” R.A. Rajeev, Metropolitan Commissioner.
He said, “In cities like Mumbai where people are facing traffic problems, such initiatives can be useful. If these pilot projects are successful, we may undertake a few more projects”.
The ₹3,500 crore multimodal integration (MMI) project for all the proposed Metro stations will provide commuters a smooth transit experience and also achieve the State’s objective of providing the last-mile connectivity. The MMI aims to facilitate works such as widened footpaths, bicycle tracks, parking zones, traffic signal improvement, street lighting, installing CCTV cameras, path-finding maps, feeder services, and street furniture Mr. Fadnavis said.
