Traversing through congested areas, Mumbai Metro Line 3 is expected to be the next lifeline for the city. Daily ridership is expected to be 17 lakh passengers per day by 2031. And when commissioned in 2021, almost 4.5 lakh vehicle trips will be reduced, resulting in reduction in fuel consumption by 2.5 lakh litre per day. This will improve the city’s carbon footprint as well.
Recently, with the ground-breaking ceremony of three new metro stations in Mumbai, Maharashtra, air travelers will soon have the option of a quicker and smoother transit to the Mumbai International Airport. The proposed metro stations at Sahar road, Domestic Airport and Terminal T2 International airport will be a part of the 33.5 km line from Colaba-Bandra to SEEPZ.
