Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority is hopeful that India's first mono rail would become operational by August
The metro and mono rails will share the burden of suburban railway and will help provide more comfortable journey within the city, he said. "The Mono Rail tests are being conducted regularly this year from Wadala to Chembur - an 8.80-km stretch and now that the entire 8.80-km first phase is ready with the guideway and beam work finished, this trial was important and we happily showcased it today," Asthana said.
The Mono Rail project is being implemented in two phases - Chembur to Wadala and Wadala to Sant Gadge Maharaj Chowk. The first phase is looking ahead to begin operations this year. The seven stations on the 8.80 km long Phase-I of the Mono Rail corridor are - Chembur, V.N.Purav/RC Marg Junction, Fertiliser Township, Bharat Petroleum, Mysore Colony, Bhakti Park and Wadala Depot. The construction work on all stations is at completion stage.
