Kanjurmarg Metro Depot yet to get approval

The proposed depot for the Mumbai Metro Line 6 (Swami Samarth Nagar to Vikhroli) elevated corridor on a disputed land parcel in Kanjurmarg has not yet received approval from the Maharashtra government. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), which is running this metro line, has already written to Chief Minister Eknath Shinde's Urban Development department to get this land parcel so depot work can start.

15.02 hectares of undeveloped salt pan land in Kanjurmarg have been designated for the Metro Line 6 depot by the authority. The Metro Line 3 depot had been moved to Kanjurmarg by the previous state government, which was led by Uddhav Thackeray. The plan was to use a common depot at Kanjurmarg to connect four Metro lines: Underground Metro Line 3 (Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ), Metro Line 4 (Gaimukh to Kasarvadavali Wadala), Metro Line 6 (Swami Samarth Nagar to Vikhroli), and Metro Line 14 (Kanjur However, due to the fact that these parcels of land are part of salt pan land, the plan was unable to proceed.

The contentious Metro 3 depot was once more relocated to Aarey after the Eknath Shinde government came to power. The decision regarding the proposed Metro Line 6 depot at Kanjurmarg has not yet received state approval.

Over 60% of Metro Line 6's 15.31-kilometer route, which connects Swami Samarth Nagar to Vikhroli (Eastern Express Highway), Jogeshwari, Western Express Highway, and Powai, is operational. It is expected to be 100 per cent operational by November or December 2024. The National Development Bank (NDB) is providing funding for the project, which is estimated to cost INR 671,160 million. In 2017, the state approved this elevated metro line.

13 stations will make up Metro Line 6, which will be integrated with Metro Lines 2A at Infinity Mall, 7 at JVLR, 3 at SEEPZ, 4 at Kanjurmarg, and suburban railway stations at Jogeshwari and Kanjurmarg, respectively.
