[QUOTE]MUMBAI: A consortium led by Larsen & Toubro (L&T) with Scomi Engineering Bhd, Malaysia, has bagged a Rs. 2,460-crore order from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) to implement the country’s first monorail system in Mumbai.

The project involves design, construction, installation, testing and commissioning and integrated testing, including train trial with initial operation and maintenance (O&M) from Gadge Maharaj Chowk (Jacob Circle) to Wadala (about 11 km) and Wadala to Chembur via Mahul (about 9 km) corridor on a lumpsum turnkey (LSTK) basis. The monorail will have 18 stations enroute and the project is to be completed in 30 months.

This will be the first monorail system in India and is expected to ease congestion in the highly crowded Jacob Circle, Wadala and Chembur area. It will provide interconnectivity to the existing suburban railway (Mahalaxmi and Lower Parel station of Western Railway, Currey Road, Dadar and Wadala station of Central Railway) and forthcoming Metro Rail as part of the multimodal transport system and on being commissioned is expected to ease congestion in the areas.

A modern urban transport system, the cars move on a single beam in an elevated corridor. The design makes it possible to execute the project on a fast-track as it requires a small footprint and facilitates implementation with minimal demolition of structures.

Other advantages include greater reliability, high manoeuvrability, lower cost and an eco-friendly design. It has sleek exteriors and its air-conditioned cars add to customer comfort.
