Maharashtra CM launches first ‘U’ girder for Metro-7

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis recently launched the first ‘U’ girder (140-ton, 25-meter long and 5-meter wide) for the Dahisar (East) to Andheri (East) Metro-7 corridor at Pathanwadi, Malad, on the Western Express Highway.

“Metro corridors are the need of the hour and I will take every step to ensure Mumbaikar’s comfort”, said Devendra Fadnavis. “Metro-7 corridor is running along the Western Express Highway and I am sure this corridor will certainly reduce the number of vehicles and free the road of the terrible congestion motorists face today. Our deadline is set for 2019 and I am happy with the speed of the work.”

UPS Madan, Metropolitan Commissioner, MMRDA, said, “The Dahisar (East) to Andheri (East) Metro-7 corridor – complimented by the Dahisar (West) to DN Nagar Metro-2A corridor – is expected to be used by more than nine lakh commuters. The corridor will also reduce congestion on the suburban rails affording much needed comfort and safety. All Metro corridors are a boost to environment too.”
