Navi Mumbai: The DMRC (Delhi metro rail corporation) is in the final stages of preparing the DPR (Detailed Project Report) for the metro rail corridor providing direct connectivity from Chhatrapati Shivaji airport terminus (Santa Cruz airport) to the Navi Mumbai international airport (NMIA), Navi Mumbai.
- “as per our information, the DPR is in final stages. The CSTM-Panvel fast track corridor that will run like a metro has been delayed, but it will be taken up at some time. So, in the meantime, the metro connectivity between the two airports is very much required for providing transportation facilities to flyers,” Cidco said.
- “The direct connectivity or a continuous corridor between two city airports will be the first of its kind in India. The metro run from the Santa Cruz airport till Mankhurd will involve stretches of underground and elevated pillars. The details will be known after the DPR is ready,” a Cidco official said.
- The metro rail run will require a new bridge over the Vashi creek, & it will be at the southern end of the 2 existing bridges, which means it will be after the CST-Panvel rail bridge, the official said.
- Cidco has planned & designed the Targhar railway station – the 2nd last stop to the NMIA on the Uran track with a metro rail halt on the first floor of the station.
