The Thane Metro Project meant internally for Thane city has possibly been scrapped, said a senior official of the Thane civic body. The metro project is likely to be replaced by a high-speed tram, also known as light urban rail transit system. The high-speed tram runs at a speed of 60 km per hour as against the old trams which trundle along at 15 km an hour. “The reason that this decision has been taken is that the high-speed tram entails less capital expenditure as compared to the metro rail, said the official. Last year, the Centre asked the state to rework the metro plan.
