MMRDA launches INR 152,10 million tender for Mumbai Metro Line-12

To move forward with the construction of the Metro Line-12 corridor, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has launched civil contract tenders. 17 stations are planned for the elevated corridor that will connect the Kalyan-Taloja stretch of the Line-12.
