MMRC receives first lot of rail tracks from Japan
The tracks came from Mitsui & Company, Japan
The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) has received its first lot of rail tracks from Japan.
The arrival of the first lot, weighing 3,615 tonne, is a significant milestone as civil work on the Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ Metro-3 corridor is getting completed in portions and track works can be taken up.
The tracks came from Mitsui & Company, Japan. The remaining lot of 7,125 tonne will arrive in two batches in 2020.
The tracks have been made with a new technology, which will reduce noise and vibration levels during train operations. This is a crucial development as MMRC moves closer to creating a faster and more convenient way to travel.
The rail tracks will be transported from the Mumbai Port to MMRC yard in BKC in the next few days.
