Following the lines of Mumbai and to know bring Thane on the global map, skywalks are soon to skyline the Thane city. The proposal for skywalks has been approved by the TMC general Body meet which would be developed with the aid of MMRDA. Following the trend of skywalk projects in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai, Thane city too is likely to have skywalks in the near future. The proposal for constructing skywalks has received the nod from the Thane general Body meet. As per plan skywalks will be constructed in around 9 or 10 prominent junctions of the city. The project is estimated at a cost of Rs 115 to 120 crores. TMC had even sent the proposal to MMRDA a week ago which has almost received the approval from MMRDA. After the completion of a few formalities, the skywalk is soon going to be developed. The ownership and the advertisement rights of the skywalks would be handed over to MMRDA after construction. A survey of areas of Kopri and Anand Nagar has began for the project. However, it would be a wait and watch to see if like Navi Mumbai, power stricken city Thane will also have a success out of this skywalk project.
