Mumbai: The Maharashtra cabinet on Thursday approved Rs 949-crore Kasarvadavali-Gaikmukh (Metro-4A) route. The metro route will cut the travel time between south Mumbai and neighbouring Thane city.
The cabinet also allowed the MMRDA (Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority) to raise funds from domestic as well as international financial institutions for the metro project, an official in the Chief Minister’s office said.

- It will be part of 32-km long Wadala-Ghatkopar-Mulund-Thane Kasarvadavali corridor which has already been approved.
- The project will benefit 8.7 lakh commuters.
- It is expected to be completed by March 2022.
