Work on the Lokhandwala-Jogeshwari-Kanjurmarg (Metro-6) corridor will commence by the end of the year.
The 14.47-km corridor will be Mumbai’s second east-west connecting Metroline after the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro one corridor.
According to a HT report, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), which is executing the project on behalf of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), awarded the civil construction contract to J Kumar Infra Projects Ltd for a section of the corridor between Samarth Nagar in Lokhandwala and Mahakali Caves in Andheri East.
Quoting a senior DMRC official, it said further: “The contract for one of the three construction packages has been awarded; it entails construction of viaduct and five stations. The cost of the package is Rs 867 crore. The remaining civil contracts for two construction packages will be awarded by the end of the month.”
