Release time:2019-12-31 14:05:43

  

       If things work as planned, Mumbai will have at least two operational metro lines in 2020. The two corridors, Metro Line-2A (Dahisar-DN Nagar) and Metro Line-7 (Dahisar East-Andheri East), are proposed to be commissioned simultaneously in 2020, the MMRDA (Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority) said in a statement.

More Information:

  • The MMRDA has not yet received possession of land for a car depot for Metro Line-7, as the land parcel is currently with the AAI (Airports Authority of India).

  • MMRDA had proposed to give AAI another land in Gorai in lieu of their land. 

  • Currently, however, this land has got a stay by the Bombay High Court as it had been earmarked for a law university.

  • Meanwhile, metro Line-2B (DN Nagar-Mandale), Line-4 (Wadala-Kasarvadavali) and Line-6 (Swami Samarth Nagar-Vikhroli), will be operational by 2021, MMRDA also claimed.

  • The ambitious Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Metro-3 corridor, being implemented by the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC), is also expected to be commissioned in 2021.

  • The MMRDA said, “Once completed, these five lines — 2A, 7, 2B, 4 and 6 — with an aggregate worth of Rs 44,869 crore are expected to serve more than 50 lakh commuters at about 98 stations across the city.”

  • It said, these lines are expected to make a considerable commuter shift by 35% , thus easing the gruelling grind that the suburban rail network is.

  • Apart from these, Mumbai will also witness works on projects like Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link (MTHL) and the Virar-Alibaug Multi-Modal Corridor having an aggregate cost of Rs 31,430 crore.
