India gets first monorail
MUMBAI, India (AA) - After a two-year delay, Mumbai's much-awaited monorail was inaugurated Saturday - the first such monorail in India.
The first phase - which will be opened to the public Sunday - will ply between the suburbs of Wadala and Chembur in India's financial capital and reduce the commute-time from 40 to 21 minutes.
The second phase will be operational by mid-2015 and extend to South Mumbai.
