MMRC Secures Rs.8,000 Crore Funding from JICA for Metro Line 3

The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) has secured an additional ?8,000 crore in funding from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to advance the development of the city's ambitious Metro Line 3 project. This crucial financial boost aims to accelerate the completion of the underground metro line, which is expected to significantly enhance Mumbai?s public transport infrastructure.

Metro Line 3, also known as the Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ line, spans 33.5 kilometres and includes 27 stations. It is designed to alleviate traffic congestion, reduce travel time, and provide a reliable and efficient mode of transportation for Mumbai?s residents. The project is a key component of Mumbai?s efforts to modernise its urban transport network and address the growing demand for public transit solutions.

The funding from JICA underscores the international community?s confidence in the project's potential to transform Mumbai's transportation landscape. This financial support will be utilised to expedite construction activities, procure advanced rolling stock, and implement cutting-edge technology for the metro line.

MMRC officials have expressed optimism about the project's progress, highlighting that the additional funds will ensure timely completion and operational readiness. The metro line is expected to serve over 1.7 million passengers daily, significantly reducing the load on Mumbai?s existing suburban rail network and roadways.

The development of Metro Line 3 is also anticipated to have positive environmental impacts by reducing vehicular emissions and promoting sustainable urban mobility. By providing an efficient alternative to private vehicles, the metro line will contribute to improved air quality and reduced carbon footprint in the city.
