Mumbai suburban rail services needs urgent attention-Maharashtra CM
“City’s suburban railway capacity should have been enhanced by 35 per cent by now, going by the present demand. We need to do a lot and need to look far ahead while improving the infrastructure,” he said.
“New rail connectivities are required to be developed and we will aggressively invest,” Fadnavis said during the ‘Mumbai Moments’ Excellence-in-Photography Awards 2015 and a panel discussion on ‘Transforming Mumbai’ last night at Mumbai Press Club.
He was responding to a question on government plans to improve the railway infrastructure and his views in the backdrop of the recent agitation at Diva railway station that brought the city to a halt when suburban rail services were disrupted by angry commuters protesting delays in trains.
“Fortunately, we have Railway Minister who gives special attention to Mumbai and loves the city,” the CM said.
