Mumbai Metro Trial begins
The most interesting change in Mumbai transportation. Today 1st May 2013 Mumbai Metro Rail ran for the first trial. CM P. Chauhan had waved the green flag to run the train. Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) already inspected the route and happy to see the new venture running successfully in Ghatkopar Route.
Mumbai Metro backbites
If we see the reality of this project various problems persisiting all the time. Still there are work which has to be completed. Most of the tracks are not completed. The major problem of shifting the tenants where the Metro Track has spread over. There were some situations also arised where sikhs were seen opposing the Metro Rail because they have not given a proper relocations. The overhead installations are still pending for many routes.
Mumbai Metro consequences
It seems consequence are going to be hazardous. When people will be come angry on this then situations may lead to big trouble.
Mumbai Metro Route
The first route which is been on for the people are
It is 11 KM long and double lined. It has a standard Gauze. It has following type of ticketing facilities.
Single ride ticket
Stored value ticket
I saw many pending work by Metro Rail. Thousands of crores are in vain if Maharashtra Government is unable to make it complete on time. As time passes the cost would be the Herculean Job.
The routes are pending for several approvals and seems the problem of local residents are still in dilemma.
