Mumbai to get two new Metro lines soon

MUMBAI: A top official said on Monday that two new lines will be largely available to the public soon, some eight years after the country's financial capital received its first east-west Mumbai Metro One railway.

Commissioner S.V.R. Srinivas of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) stated the two new lines - Metro 2A and Metro 7 - will be operating in early April, with the exact date to be disclosed in a day or so.

Both lines are elevated, and Metro 2A, which runs from Dahisar west to D.N. Nagar (Andheri west), and Metro 7, which runs from Dahisar east to Andheri east, would be extremely beneficial to residents of the north-western suburbs.

The MMRDA is said to have received the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety's final approval after meeting all of the project's standards, which has missed many projected deadlines since October 2021 for commencing commercial operations. When completed, Metro 7 will be 33.50 kilometres long with 29 stations, while Metro 2A will be 18 kilometres long with 17 stations.

The two new Metro Lines, which run parallel to the Western Express Highway, the Western Railway suburban portion, the S. V. Road, and the Link Road, are designed to relieve traffic congestion and overcrowding in local trains by up to a third.
