I agree with qwertyasd. I love my democracy, my freedom of speech, basic human rights - I love India. It does take time, but I am sure it will get done. By the way isn't the time taken to implement, start a project and get it done as decreased over the years and now we have pro infrastructure reforms as well.

more project updates from mumbaimetro1.com

selectively quoting from the website:

Running on the fast track, Mumbai Metro One Private Limited commenced construction for the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar route on February 8, 2008 at the junction of Guru Hargovindji Road (Dhaku Road) and Andheri-Kurla Road near ICICI Bank. The initial activity comprising trial pits and pile load tests was started in an area of about 250sq. mts on the side of the main road to avoid any disturbance to the traffic. This will be followed by regular piling and other works.

Test Pile driving activity has been completed at J B Nagar, Asalpha and Ghatkopar and is underway at Western Express Highway. At the same time activities related to setting up casting yards is underway at Wadala.

Working “round-the-clock”, the company completed most of the preparatory work for this project much ahead of schedule:

metro work on the WEH

Expect more traffic snarls on the western express highway

A section of the road will be barricaded for Metro rail work

MUMBAI: Vehicles plying between Chakala and Saki Naka and on JP Road between Versova and SV Road will not be able to use a nine-metre passage in the middle of the road i.e four-and-half metres on either side of the divider from March 1.

The reason being Mumbai Metro One Private Ltd (MMOPL), the Reliance Energy-led consortium constructing the first 13 km of Metro rail corridor between Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar, will barricade the area.

as per 'jan', and i quote:

I have deleted the News Update thread because one of the content sources rightfully pointed out that it is not legal to copy the whole content from one website to another. The correct way to quote news messages onto the forums is copy the title and the first paragraph or a summary, and link to the source page where you got it from. Thanks for your cooperation.

i don't mind putting the quote tags in around a news article, however that is not that clear from the sticky. note my post #334 on this thread.

Public Information Center

Request to members in Mumbai - Can someone visit the Public Information Center, take some pics and post it here. Construction is about to start and no station renderings yet (an international firm was working on it)?, how will the train look like? and Who is manufacturing the trains? Can someone get answers to the above questions? Nothing on this on MM1 website. May be this info is available at the public info center.
