Vashi to Gateway via water

Thursday, April 14, 2011

With an aim to reduce congestion in local trains which is only increasing with each passing day, the state has asked the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) to develop water transport between Vashi and the Gateway of India.

“After the Nariman Point to Borivli sea route was termed unviable, the state has now decided to explore the possibilities of water transport from Navi Mumbai to Mumbai. Given the fact that the proposed international airport is coming up in Navi Mumbai, the sea route will be the most preferred option by flyers as well as those who travel to Mumbai everyday for work,” said sources from MSRDC.

Chandrasekhar Bhat, a daily commuter between Vashi to Mumabi, said, “If the sea route to Mumbai is opened, it will be a big relief for those travelling to Mumbai daily for work. It will save time, energy and the trouble of travelling in overcrowded trains.”

With the City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) trying to enhance transport services such as metro and mono rail along with Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA), the decision to develop sea route will be a welcome value addition. Currently, Guardian Minister of Thane district, Ganesh Naik, uses the sea route to travel to Mantralaya via his private boat.

“Developing the sea route will not only save time, but also enhance the journey experience, which most of the time is pathetic when undertaken using local trains,” said Sanjay Kumar, an investment banker.

Love and romance should get priority over other social activities, and responsibilities especially since you have been rather busy of late.
