Can you completely fall in love with a city?
With Mumbai you really can. The city, it gets into your system, if you
live in Mumbai you never want to live anywhere else. It’s one of the ideal cities
to experience a strong dose of adrenaline, if you are leading too comfortable life. Inspite of all that it is and all the unpleasantness that people have to
contend with, the water-logged streets and the manic traffic jams but
regardless of what the city is, it leaves you apologetically, missing the free
spirit that is Mumbai.
Mumbai, the city that has innumerable colors and
emotions, the highs and the lows, the dreams and the aspirations. With so much
of character and yet, it continues to evolve. A city that is flourishing and generates about 5% of
India’s GDP and contributes over one third of the country’s tax revenues.
But one can’t help but point out the fact that the infrastructure
needs a major dose of revamping.With the existing suburban systems under extreme
pressure, with the bus system’s role limited to providing feeder services to
railways. There are numerous constraints to expand the existing road network
capacity. The need and want for an adequate road and rail improvements
to match up to the future demand. Come May, there is much to celebrate about. Mumbai will enter a new phase and have a new face. The traffic, the
stress, the noise, the chaos will decrease if not disappear. Reliance Metro, India’s first private
partnership operated mass rapid system, will be an answer to Mumbai’s overcrowded and inhuman transport
system, providing a fast, easy and comfortable commute through
high-speed trains. It’s not been an easy task, constructing a 233-metre concrete bridge 17 meters above
the ground with crush-packed local trains zipping past down below. A viaduct at 7 meters
above the Andheri flyover on Western Express Highway—that’s a sampling
of the engineering challenges whose high-precision solutions are getting
fine-tuned in the office of the Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd on a daily basis. Reliance
Metro, there is a lot that goes into the
making of infrastructure projects like this. Machinery
and technology have over the years enabled manmade structures to stand against
nature's wrath and testing times. Moulded into the making of the most
jaw-dropping engineering marvel, it has only left the human mind boggled, when
one unravels the art and science that goes behind it. From the minds of who
designed them to those who built, usually leading to a story of carving
landmarks out of mere bricks and steel. All this would have not been possible
without the help of Mumbaikars who celebrated all the good that happened and
believed in us for bad that overcame.Through this blog we would continue to share
day to day story of Mumbai metro, mumbaikar and the inspiration that keeps
mumbaikar going. Thus inspiring one and all to have a nice day.
aboard to a journey that will be destination in itself.
The journey that we would build together.
