Mumbai: As the construction work of the underground Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ Metro line 3 is nearing completion, MMRCL's work of restoring roads and clearing barricades put up owing to the construction is underway in full swing. Residents heave a sigh of relief as they are expecting a solution to the grievances that they have lived with for over 5 years to facilitate smooth progress of the construction work. From traffic woes, to drop in sales of the shop owners along the route, that time is not far when all these construction related inconveniences are eradicated. Over 60 per cent of the roads have already been cleared by the MMRCL.

After the work of the removal of barricades is completes, trees will be planted in the open spaces atop the Metro 3 stations. Part of this initiative has already kickstarted with tree already planted at Churchgate station.

Phase one consists of eight stations from Seepz to BKC, while phase two will include six stations from Dharavi to Worli. Phase three of the route will have 11 stations between Worli & Cuffe Parade.
