Having dealt with landfills, authorities took on water issues. By 2040, waste treatment plants have been equipped with graphene-based filters — now drinking water fountains are available at almost every intersection.
However, this project pales against the backdrop of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor. State-of-the-art rail has not only strengthened links between India’s two largest cities but created thousands of jobs for those who live in-between.

To reduce congestion in the renewed areas, authorities are building dozens of multilevel interchanges and modernizing the public transportation system. Mumbai residents now travel on hybrid buses, and fares have been reduced to ease traffic.
