Mumbai Metro 3.0 or Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Line
Mumbai Metro Line-3 is expected to expand over a length of 33.5 km. Connecting the major spots of Colaba, Bandra and SEEPZ, this extended facility will be functional along an extensive underground corridor. Out of the 27 stations being built on this route, 26 will be underground complexes while one will be established at grade. Once ready for operations, this service will supplement the local transport network in the city, benefitting a large count of individuals.
