Modern India moves fast. Mumbai is probably the fastest city. For example – Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has said the city will see a transformation in terms of mobility with projects ranging from underground metro and sea bridge to coastal roads, elevated suburban trains and new airports.These include 258 km of metro network in Mumbai and suburban areas, which would be one of the biggest in the country. About 50 km of elevated suburban railway network is being set up.They are also making coastal roads. a new sea link, a sea bridge from Mumbai to New Mumbai, an airport in New Mumbai, an underground metro and – all complete by 2022.
Here’s how modern India is different – in the past such a promise from a Chief Minister would be laughed at by the locals as “never going to happen”. Now, it is happening.
