MMRC Completes 86% backfilling work on Metro 3 ramp in Aarey


Mumbai, India (Metro Rail Today): In a recent development in Metro Line 3 also known as aqua line, 86% of the backfilling work on the ramp at Sariput Nagar in Aarey has been completed according to sources.

"The ramp is the last leg that connects the underground part to the elevated one. After the civil work is completed on the ramp, backfilling work is on in full swing", said the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) .

The Maharashtra government had announced in September 2019 that Metro Line 3 will be connected with the elevated Metro Line 6 (Swami Samarth Nagar-Jogeshwari-Vikhroli-Kanjurmarg). 

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) had told the Bombay high court that the ramp will be used to connect the elevated Metro Line 6, which passes from Jogeshwari link road (JVLR).

However, no work has begun to connect Metro Line 3 with the proposed elevated Metro Line 6 as uncertainty on the issue prevails. 

It is to be noted that Aarey has been a center of many controversies in the recent past and it remains
one of the most controversial metro project sites in the country.
