Mumbai metro

It will be built in three phases over a period of 15 years and it is expected to be completed in 2021. The final plan will include seven metro lines.

◗ Number of lines: 1 +1 under construction + 5 proposed
◗ Number of stations: 12 (1st Line)
◗ Executive Manager Bharat Bhushan Modgil
◗ It was expected to be operational in 2012, but is still under construction
◗ Operators: Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL) / Mumbai Metro Rail Corpora­tion (MMRC)
◗ Length: 146 km

It was developed as the first PPP project where construction, operation and mainte­nance have been placed under the mandate of the private sector. Mumbai’s Metro is ex­pected to be developed in 3 phases.

Phase I
Construction began in 2003. It consists of:
◗ Line 1. Versova-Ghatkopar. which began operations in June 2014 and in 2021 is esti­mated to transport 665,000 passengers per day.
◗ Line 2 Dahisar-Mankhurd. This line was ap­proved in 2009 and will cross Mumbai from North to East. The length of the line will be 31.87 km and will have 27 stations, all el­evated. There is a possibility that this line in the future will connect with the proposed 18 km line from Andheri to Dahisar. Currently construction is paralyzed by the Ministry of Environment due to the problems of land­lessness in the space chosen for the route.
◗ Line 3. Colaba-SEEPZ. Due to the cessation of line 2, it can be built before. This railway line will be 33 km long and will have 27 underground stations. Besides the contribu­tions of governments, this line is funded by JICA. It is estimated that in 2020 it will trans­port 1,300,000 users per day.

Phase II
There are plans to build 2 lines with a total length of 20 km.
◗ Line 4. Charkop-Dahisar. The MMRDA has specified that for line 4, with a length of 7.8 km, an amount of Rp. 1.700 crores will be required. Thanks to this metro network, the western suburbs will be connected.
◗ Line 5: Ghatkopar-Mulund. For this line, 12.4 km long, the corresponding DPR has not yet been specified, but the research of M/s CES (I) Pvt Ltd is in process.

Phase III
This phase is only in the planning stage. It in­cludes the development of three metro lines with a length of 43.2 km.
◗ Línea 6: Andheri-Dahisar is estimated to have a length of 18 km.
◗ Line 7: Hutatma Chowk-Ghatkopar will be 21.8 km long.
◗ Line 8: Sewri-Prabhadevi will be 3.4 km long. With this corridor South Mumbai will be connected in only 25 minutes.

Navi Mumbai
Navi Mumbai is a planned municipality in Mumbai, on the west coast of the Indian state of Maharashtra. It was developed in 1972 as a new urban area of Mumbai.
The Government of Maharashtra (GOM) has entrusted the Industrial and Citizen Development Corporation of Maharashtra Ltd. (CIDCO) the planning and creation of a environmentally friendly transport, covering residential, commercial and industrial needs of the population and that secures rapid de­velopment. The Mass Rapid Transportation master plan has identified six corridors for suburban routes.
The viability plan was carried out by DMRC and after studying different modes of trans­port such as bus, monorail, etc, consultants opted to build a metro system. The passenger capacity that this system can carry at peak hours is 35,000 passengers PHPDT (Peak Hour Per Direction Traffic).
Given the different priorities, the total pro­ject is divided into 3 phases.

Phase I
The first phase is formed by the implementa­tion of 3 metro lines.
◗ Line 1.Belapur-Pendhar, with an extension of 11,10km. It is hoped that this first line opens in 2016.
◗ Line 2: Khandeshwar-Taloje, 8.35 km long.
◗ Line 3. This is the interconnection between Line 1 and Line 2, 2km long.

Phase II
The following lines are distinguished:
◗ Mankhurd-Panvel via NMIA with an ap­proximate length of 32 km.
◗ Sewree-Kharkopar-NMIA (MTHL) with an approximate length of 22 km.

Phase III
This phase is comprised by the following lines:
◗ Dighe-Turbhe-Belapur (20 km aprox)
◗ Vashi-Ghansoli-Mahape (9 km aprox)
