Mumbai to get world's third largest metro rail network.

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has planned a 450-km long network of metro rail corridors for the city and surroundings - the third largest in the world.

'The MMRDA has proposed to build 450 kms of metro rail and another network of monorail corridors which would offer efficient, convenient and environment friendly transportation system over the next 8-10 years,' said MMRDA Metropolitan Commissioner UPS Madan at the Third Regional Dialogue, Mumbai, leading to the upcoming 15th Delhi Sustainable Development Summit scheduled in February.

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), which comprises Mumbai and parts of adjacent Thane, Palghar and Raigad districts, is aimed to get metro rail connectivity which will be next only to Shanghai and Beijing.

Madan said that the government is working towards designing a transportation system that would ensure sustainable and smart mobility in the MMR.
