Mumbai Monorail contractor to be issued ultimatum over project delay

The Maharashtra Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) will issue an ultimatum to Scomi Engineering, the contractor for the Mumbai Monorail, if it failed to begin phase two services by next year.

The MMRDA decision comes in the wake of delay in phase two of the Wadala to Jacob Circle section. The MMRDA will ask Scomi to provide rakes that are needed for the second phase immediately or it will look at initiating action against it.

Foreign firm Scomi is currently running the phase one (Chembur-Wadala) of the monorail. The second phase has to begin soon to improve the monorail service. The MMRDA was planning to begin the new service by the new year.
