Sources said that there are plans to link the hyperloop with either the metro 3 or the bullet train project.

Meanwhile, BKC will also witness other inter-connections such as that between metro 2B (Dahi-sar to Mandale) and the underground metro so that commuters can change corridors via a skywalk.

Mumbai: The much talked about Mumbai-Pune hyperloop is likely to have a connecting point at Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) in Mumbai, revealed a senior Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) official.

BKC already houses two mega transport projects, including the underground metro 3 corridor (Colaba-Bandra-Seepz) and the bullet train (Mumbai-Ahmedabad). Sources said that there are plans to link the hyperloop with either the metro 3 or the bullet train project.

 

“The plans are still at an initial stage, but the hyperloop may get connected to BKC either through the underground metro or the bullet train. However, nothing has been finalised yet,” said a senior MMRDA official on condition of anonymity.

However, the metropolitan commissioner of Pune Metropolitan Reg-ion Development Autho-rity (PMRDA), Kiran Gitte, averred, “We are exploring options other than BKC, too. We haven’t finalised anything so far. Everything depends on the feasibility report that will come in August. After studying the report, one can ascertain where the traffic ends in Mumbai. Thus, the final decision is yet to be made.”

 

Meanwhile, BKC will also witness other inter-connections such as that between metro 2B (Dahi-sar to Mandale) and the underground metro so that commuters can change corridors via a skywalk. Further, the authorities are also exploring options to integrate the bullet tra-in with the metro 3 and metro 2B. According to officials, the bullet train and metro 3 may be connected through an underground subway.
