Mumbai With labourers returning Diva Thane rail project gets back on track says Central Railways
| Tuesday | 23rd June, 2020
The Diva-Thane rail project — one of the most crucial projects on Central Railway (CR) — has faced major losses during the lockdown with supply chains delayed and most of the labour returning home.
It envisages building two new lines between Thane and Diva so that totally there are six lines, segregating four suburban lines and two outstation lines to keep traffic moving without mix-up and at a faster pace.
However, despite the delay, Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) which is spearheading the project said they are in control and can still and complete the project on time.
All efforts will be put to complete the work as soon as possible post-monsoon," MRVC's managing director RS Khurana said.
However, between Thane -Diva, there are four lines,which results in congestion of outstation trains.
