Signalling a major boost to infrastructure facilities, the government on Tuesday cleared two metro rail projects costing around Rs 25,000 crore.

The two approved projects are Metro 2B corridor running from DN Nagar-Bandra-Mankhurd costing around Rs 10,986 crore and Metro 4 connecting Wadala-Ghatkopar-Thane-Kasarvadavli, estimated at around Rs 14,549 crore.
