All monorail stations on the under-construction Chembur-Wadala Monorail corridor will have their own unique identity in terms of design and colour so as to enable passengers identify them without having to look at name boards.
The 8.3-km Chembur-Wadala Monorail line will have seven stations,Wadala,Bhakti Park,Mysore Colony,V N Purav Marg,Fertilizer Colony,RC Marg and Chembur. Use diverse colour schemes,designs and or patterns but give a unique identity to all the Monorail stations. Each station must be distinctive from the other. It will help commuters to not only identify stations easily but also offer relief from the otherwise stressful sight of a concrete jungle, said Rahul Asthana,Metropolitan Commissioner at MMRDA to contractors in charge of the construction.
The Chembur-Wadala Monorail route is being constructed as the first phase of the larger Chembur-Wadala-Jacob Circle Monorail corridor,which will be 20-kms. The MMRDA expects the already-delayed first phase to be commissioned by December this year.
Asthana had visited the Monorail car shed at Wadala,the adjoining Wadala station and Bhakti Park station on Wednesday to review the progress of the project.
During the visit,Asthana,accompanied by other senior MMRDA officials,looked closely at the partially-completed operation control centre,ticketing counters,station control rooms and the signaling and communication systems.
