Southern California based company RyPul Threat Assessments has been approved to assist in security assessments and reviews for two new Metro corridors that are expected to bring the space-starved Mumbai much relief.
The much-awaited Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan Metro 5 corridor will finally see the light of the day with the state cabinet on Tuesday approving the proposal for linking the power loom town of Bhiwandi and expanding the Metro corridor in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR).
The state cabinet also approved the Swami Samarth Nagar-Jogeshwari-Kanjurmarg-Vikhroli Metro 6 corridor linking the Western suburbs with the Eastern suburbs of Mumbai. This will be the second West-East Metro corridor after the already operational Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar corridor.
Both the approved Metro 5 and Metro 6 corridors link major industrial and commercial hubs along the route.
