The urgency to meet the ever-increasing transportation demands of the urban population was of paramount importance. People today demand transport that is fast, safe and easily accessible. That is why, we at RInfra, have taken up the responsibility for a metro rail projects on BOT basis in Mumbai.
With an aim to provide fast and reliable public transport by significantly reducing travel time, Mumbai’s first Metro project on the highly congested Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar (VAG) Corridor was conceptualised.
The Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) project was awarded by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) to the RInfra led consortium through a global competitive bidding process on Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) framework for a concession period of 35 years including five years of construction period. A special purpose vehicle - Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) – was incorporated for implementation of the project..
The project commenced its commercial operation on 8th June 2014 with a promotional fare of Rs 10 for the first month.
The Metro line with 12 stations covers 11.4 km of dense traffic corridor with two interchanges with Indian Railways suburban system at Andheri and Ghatkopar.
The MRTS system, which achieved 50 Million ridership in just six months, has been proved to be a huge success for the transportation infrastructure in Mumbai.
