The second phase, which was inaugurated Sunday by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, connects Sant Gadge Chowk to Wadala. The CM had expressed hope that the new phase will give a much-needed boost to the full monorail corridor.
At least 12 lines in the planned Metro rail network offer connectivity to or in the MMR, including the Bhiwandi-Thane-Kalyan line and the Mira Road-Bhayander-Virar line.While civil works are underway for some of these lines, work at others will start in September.
The services of Phase I will resume with revised fares, which are almost at par with the Metro One fares. While the previous fares ranged between Rs 5 and Rs 19, they have now been hiked to Rs 10 and Rs 40.
