MMRDA’s plan for the development of the 337 km network for Metro Services will earn us the immense pride of establishing the largest metro network in the world upon its completion. Our innovative approaches continue to elevate connectivity between the five districts of the MMR, whereas the MTHL will soon become the longest sea bridge in India interlinking two major cities. Moreover, the seven growth centres offer a promising new direction for the decongestion of traffic in the MMR, in addition to gifting the development of new sub-urban regions. Imbued with sustainability and innovation, our mindful approaches are making the lives of people better with every single step. Hence, it was a huge privilege for us to demonstrate MMRDA’s unwavering commitment to the residents of the MMR, and we thank ET for granting an enormous platform for this noble cause.”
Shri BVR Subrahmanyam, CEO of NITI Aayog added “The ever-growing significance of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region necessitates the pursuit of prospective economic and infrastructural planning.

With a variety of innovative infrastructural projects like the Nagpur Mumbai Express Highway, MTHL, Coastal Roads, and the extensive network of Metro services, it is safe to say that Maharashtra is leading the nation in terms of urban development. Each one of these projects will cater to the growing need for transportation, in addition to decongesting the roadways and reducing travel distances.
