Mumbai, India (Metro Rail Today): The Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (MMRDA) is examining the possibility of constructing a metro corridor on the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link  Road, which will connect the southern part of the city to Navi Mumbai.

The matter was discussed on Friday in a meeting held by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to review major infrastructure projects according to different sources.

"The MTHL project – the country’s largest proposed sea link – is a 21.8-km long six-lane road bridge that is being built between Sewri in Mumbai and Chirle in Navi Mumbai.

Currently, 35-40 percent of the work on MTHL is complete. The project is expected to be completed by September 2023.
