Mumbai: The civil aviation authorities okayed the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) to construct the corridor in the Juhu airport funnel area. UPS Madan, Metropolitan Commissioner, MMRDA said,“The civil aviation department has approved the design we submitted to them. They are likely to issue a letter soon and we are waiting for that. It has been cleared informally but the formal letter has to come.”
Earlier, the MMRDA had written to the AAI (Airports Authority of India) seeking clearance to construct the metro line in the funnel area of the airport.
They had proposed it to the civil aviation department, which has now cleared it.
The 23.5-km Metro 2B corridor connecting DN Nagar-Bandra-Mankhurd will run along the Juhu aerodrome.
