Turns out that 2016 had another surprise in store for us.
On the night of December 31, the first metro train for Navi Mumbai’s 11.1 km Line-1 (Belapur – Khargar Pendhar) comprising of 3 coaches arrived at the city’s Taloja Depot from CRRC’s plant in Zhuzhou, China without any prior announcement by its operator. This train is part of a 300 million yuan (approx. Rs 295 crores) contract that CIDCO signed with CSR Zhuzhou, CRRC’s subsidiary, in July 2014 for an undisclosed number of 3-car trains which I estimate to be 10.
On 03 jan 2017 New Mumbai Metro Line-1(NMM) Train Entered Taloja depo, done the opening with pooja .
