These will be the advantages of water transport
Due to lack of jetty at the gateway, the administration was facing difficulty in starting services on the new route from there. Due to lack of space, cruise service was started from the Domestic Cruise Terminal. But due to lack of adequate transport facilities to reach the cruise terminal, there was very less response from the passengers. As a result many companies had to stop their services. With the availability of bus service and other facilities near Radio Club, passengers will be able to reach the jetty easily.
At the same time, it will be possible to start services on other routes. According to the government, water transport and jetties between Thane-Vasai will make it easier to reach Kalyan, Dombivli, Thane, Vasai, Navi Mumbai from South Mumbai.
The speed of three metro lines will increase
Along with water transport, the government has also taken care of the metro projects of MMR. A provision of Rs 19,080 crore has been made in the budget for the three lines of the metro. A provision of Rs 4,476 crore has been made in the budget for the Metro-10 corridor to be built between Gaymukh-Shivaji Chowk (Mira Road). Rs 8,739 crore has been allocated for the Metro-11 corridor from Wadala to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSAT) and Rs 5,865 crore for the Metro-12 corridor from Kalyan to Taloja. Let us inform that in 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation stone of these three metro projects. But the construction work of these lines has not started yet.
