The metropolitan city Mumbai has been blessed with six metro corridors beginning in 2016 and was expected to complete in March 2019. A huge investment of Rs. 12,940 crore has been made by the state government on the ongoing construction work under the Mumbai Metro rail project.
The survey shows that the total cost of the construction sums up to be Rs.68,005 crore and current investment being 19% of total estimated. The maximum amount of investment has been made on the fully underground Metro-3 (Colaba-Bandra-Seepz) corridor by MMRC.
The construction work is being done by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) on five metro corridors in the city while the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) is building the one.
The economic survey further shows that the MMRDA has spent ₹1,561 crore on Metro-7, wherein 67% of the civil works has been completed, and ₹1,351 crore on Metro-2A, wherein 63% of the civil works has been finished.
“We have a systems order of more than ₹3,000 crore, which includes rolling stock, signalling, telecommunications, etc. This expenditure is due in the next one year,” said R A Rajeev, metropolitan commissioner, MMRDA.
The MMRDA has made a huge investment of ₹201.30 crore on Metro-6 (Swami Samarth Nagar-Vikhroli); ₹227.98 crore on Metro-4 (Wadala-Kasarvadavali); and ₹196.31 crore on Metro-2B (DN Nagar-Mandale), while the general public is showing the protest against the three routes.
There has been reported a big clash between Powai residents who have demanded rerouting Metro line 6 while the citizens have been demanding underground routes for lines 2B and 4.
This is a serious lacuna with the authority as there were no public consultations or citizen committees set up to weigh the projects before they spend such a huge amount on it,” said by AV Shenoy, a transport expert from Mumbai Vikas Samiti, who is in favor of consulting the public before starting the work.
