India’s first monorail is being planned for Mumbai, and others could follow. The new transportation system will connect with the existing suburban rail system and a new metropolitan railway that is being designed. It will link the west and northeast of Mumbai and should help to ease congestion in several parts of the city.
The monorail will have 18 stations, a fleet of 15 trains with four cars each and is expected to take 30 months to complete. The contract for the project was recently awarded to Malaysia’s Scomi Engineering and Indian construction company L&T.
Scomi’s chief executive Shah Hakim Zain said “This will be the first monorail system in India and is expected to ease the congestion in the highly crowded Jacob Circle, Wadala and Chambur areas” of the country’s financial capital.
He also noted that Scomi has put in proposals to build several other monorails in India as well as Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Bahrain, Vietnam and Lagos, Nigeria.
