THANE-PANVEL PHASE II MAY BE READY FOR DIWALI

Commuters on the Thane-Panvel line can heave a sigh of relief with the much-awaited second phase of the route expected to be completed by Diwali. Work on the 4.8-km Turbhe-Nerul line is nearly over and once finished, it will benefit around 75,000 commuters daily. Till now, commuters from Thane who needed to go to Panvel needed to travel to Sanpada or Vashi, change trains and then head in the reverse direction. The whole journey, which took 45 minutes excluding the waiting time while changing trains, will now be completed in 35 minutes. The Thane-Panvel link comprises two phases-one between Thurbe and Vashi, which was sanctioned in 1995-96 and completed in 2004 and the other between Thurbe and Nerul, work on which started after 2004.
