The World Bank-funded Mumbai Urban Transport Project (MUTP) 2 was planned to decongest the city’s suburban railway network for 75 lakh daily commuters. But at the end of six years, it has now been revealed that MUTP 2 worth Rs 8,087 crore, missed all its relevant targets to reduce overcrowding, improve punctuality and travelling time of local trains. MUTP-2 failed to achieve these targets till the end of December 2016, when this delayed project was partially completed. However, the World Bank-funded portion of the project, worth US $280 million more than a year ago. The report is seen as a review of the project by the funding agency.
