Hi Friends,

I am starting a thread to visualize what Mumbai would be like to stay in the next 10 years.

Want to be optimistic but...



What with the bandra worli sealink, mumbai metro phase 1 and brts taking forever and shelving of the metro phase 3 (Colaba to Bandra) it looks like mumbai wont change much at least as far as the infrastructure is concerned, it is indeed a shame since places like Hong Kong, shanghai, kuala lumpur and Singapore change so much in just over 2-3 years, a whole metro line from one end of the town to the other (over 70 kms) is laid down in Hong Kong in just over 2 years, likewise a ring route linking all the metros is laid down in Singapore in just over 2 years and here we have a metro route in phase 1 that is taking forever, why even our delhi metro is far better, so I dont hold out much hope for mumbai, as a matter of fact as someone had mentioned Mumbai may soon loose out to more illustrious and fast moving cities in India such as Delhi, CHennai, Hyderabad, Pune, etc.

Only hope that those responsible for these mega projects understand this and take steps to rectify this before it is too late beacuse with the way the buildings are coming up in Mumbai, if infrastructure does not catch up, it would spell doom for the city.

PLEASE WAKE UP AND TAKE ACTION

I think all the BEST Bus service, Trains, Metro, Monorail will be full of A/C

Mumbai will be full of mall. I think there will be nothing call as small retail store. 25 retails shops will be demoilished and malls will be build. and in that also there will be compition like which developers is coming up with the biggest mall eg Dahisar MALL

entertainment zones - aaaaaaaaaaaaa... no idea but yes it will increase as compare to today.

India will be full of foreign brand only. no vada-pav only burger

Very few parks and gardens. which will be very difficult to find out.

Roads will be of definately of good quality. No holes on roads will be there during rainy seasons.

Mumbai is a megacity and deserves a lot , however my expectations remain modest for any Indian city given the progress I have been bought up with.

1.) A comprehensive drainage system , no more flooding due to excessive rain - If the dutch can do , so can we. Mumbai is not a village for hevans sake , this would be a first basic priority.

2.) No slums - While I understand that these are homes for many of the poor but it's ridiculous that there exists stuff like Slum Rehab Prog. which have done nothing , slums in central mumbai are a blot on India's commercial capital and people living in these are unsafe too.

3.) More green cover - If Delhi can improve it's green cover , it's hardly difficult for mumbai.

4.)Envt. friendly sky scrapers - Every building coming up is adding heat to it's surroundings , a majestic skyline with a envt. friendly structure , is ti too much to ask ?

1. Transportation buses will be modernised, there will be Airconditioned buses.

2. Not sure about trains though. Ofcourse Metro and Monorails would be Airconditioned.

3. Technology as compared to developed nations would be also available.
Like ticket vending machines at all stations, internet wi-fi available at malls and open parks.

4. Civic sense will not improve. People will still defecate in open places.
some people will still spit on the roads.

5. Hygiene standards will still be low. Road side food will be available (like Bhelpuri and Sevpuri, vada-pav), people will be selling stuff without wearing hand gloves.

6. ROads will improve tremendously, the Highways, mumbai, thane roads should not have much pot-holes.
But, but but....traffic rules will not be followed much..(such as today).
Drivers would still Honk without any reason (such as standing on the Red lights)

The reason people in India dont respect the sanctity of public places is largely because the economic divide between the rich and the poor. Until the poor and rural areas are drawn a share in Indias prosperity, they wont give a f*** about rich peoples playgrounds aka the city. Indias problems are deep rooted and until changes occur at the grass root level, nothing is going to change.

Suburb and South Mumbai / Divide

I am a suburban resident, that too in the far outskirts of mumbai (in mira road)..

There is a vast divide betwen suburb and south mumbai (forget about rich and poor).

South mumbai gets municipal water (24/7), good roads, train frequency is far better, BEST transportation etc..

where as suburb has less facilities like BEST buses are less, trains (all know this, virar trains are so crowded), Toll (1000rs. permonth)...whereas the flyovers are being used by those in mumbai.

hmm...kucch socha padega...

lets stop being kids and behave as mature people. Concentrate on things that are happening now instead of making palaces of imagination.

I don't think Mumbai will improve in the next 10 years unless major infrastructural reforms are put in place:

More rail-based mass transit options. Our commuter rail service is pushed to the edge and cannot be improved upon unless the load is diverted from it. We need:
- a cohesive network of integrated light rail systems such as elevated transit and an effective tram-based system
- the completion of an effective metro rail network
- opening up the commuter rail system to competition, as seen in the Tokyo Rail system.
- an emphasis on mass transit and a greater investment in buses in an attempt to take away the 'poor man's' stigma attached to mass transit

There's a lot more than this, but I'm sleepy.

I heard that the F1 race is being hosted in outskirts of delhi, Vijay mallya has puchased some land (Faridabad or gaziabad or gurgaon)...

so does that mean these small cities will also get best of infrastructure.

The only way for mumbai to improve and get more grants is to host the 2020 Olympic games (Just kidding, i think by then atleast some progress would be made)

Erm, the metro?
Besides that and all the hue n cry about the capital,excluding NCR, mumbai is still the daddy.I incliude social indicators in this.
Acvtually I should reserve judgement as I aint been delhiside for years.
BTW why was there no gay pride parade in mumbai? Seemed odd, when delhi & bangalore got one.

the metro or the suburban rail system? i'd take the WR and CR for now, the delhi metro is not in the same league. maybe the metro will be better in 25-30 years. who knows how big bombay's own metro will be by then

delhi gets these central government sponsored infra boosts every 20 years or so. asiad, commonwealth, etc. the rush for infra may not be the same post-2010. unless the GoI bids delhi for the olympics of course

Or the other way round?
Re reading the last few post i think i might be coming from the upside down angle...
So to clarify....Delhis ahead in ... parks , road.And the metro.
