Three weeks after a major accident on the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro brought construction to a halt, work on the corridor restarted two days ago after a review of safety measures.
Officials from SGS, a Swiss firm Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) has roped in, is monitoring every construction site for safety.
MMOPL is a Reliance Infrastructure-led special purpose vehicle in charge of the 11.4-km elevated corridor. "SGS has deployed personnel to oversee safety measures round-the-clock," an MMOPL spokesperson said.
Officials maintained impact of the stoppage of work on the 2013 deadline would be minimal.
A construction worker died and 16 were injured when an escalator beam being concretized at Airport Road Metro Station collapsed earlier this month.
