Thane civic body to invest Rs 5,493 crore to make city ‘smart’

Additional municipal commissioner of Thane Municipal Corporation Sunil Chavan said the civic body has planned an investment outlay of Rs 5,493 crore to make the city smart.

Speaking at a CII event on smart cities, he said, “We have planned an investment of Rs 5,493 crore to transform Thane into a smart city. The investment will be made mainly in the area development.”

According to him, the Corporation has already undertaken various development projects like building roads, encouraging non-motorised transport like footpaths and bicycle tracks to make the city more liveable and citizen friendly.

Chavan added: “To ease the increasing pressure of existing Thane railway station, an alternative railway station is planned between Thane and Mulund with an investment of Rs 300 crore. While Rs 120 crore would be utilised for the station, the rest will be deployed for development of the area around the station.”
