Assignment Name : Preparatory Social Management Activities for MUTP-III Projects
Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has been striving to strengthen the mass transport network and improve the travel quality i.e. Mumbai Urban Transport Project (MUTP) was set up as a continuation of the Bombay Urban Transport Project (BUTP) under which Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation Ltd. (MRVC) a joint venture of Ministry of Railways and Govt. of Maharashtra was set up for implementation of rail related projects.
In the third phase of MUTP, a fast corridor on Harbour Line connecting CST and Panvel and new suburban lines between Virar to Panvel are envisaged. While the new double line corridor proposed between Virar-Panvel would facilitate introduction of suburban services in this potential-growth area, the additional tracks with fast running air conditioned trains in CSTM-Panvel would be an option for the existing and upcoming developments. These services will also facilitate better connectivity to proposed International Navi Mumbai Airport.
