Maharashtra CM to inaugurate two new Mumbai metro lines on April 2

Maharashtra Chief Minister (CM) Uddhav Thackeray would inaugurate the two new Mumbai Metro lines for public operation on 2 April 2022.

After eight years, it had an east-west Mumbai Metro one corridor. Now, Mumbai will get two more lines, Metro 2A and Metro 7, which will be partially opened on 2 April.

Both fully elevated, Metro 2A will run from Dahisar west to D N Nagar, Andheri West, and Metro 7 from Dahisar east to Andheri East, which would benefit the people in the northwestern suburbs of Mumbai.

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) received final clearances and approval from the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety after complying with all the conditions for the project, which has passed many tentative deadlines since October 2021 for launching commercial operations.

Metro 7 is 33.50 km long, which will have 29 stations, and Metro 2A will be 18 km long with 17 stations on the route.

Running parallel to the Western Expressway, Western Railway suburban section, S V Road and the Link Road, the two new metro lines expect to reduce road congestion and overcrowding in the local trains by up to one-third.

The development comes after ten months CM Thackeray, along with Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat, flagged off the trial runs of these two metro lines last year in May.

The Mumbai Metro One Blue Line 1 of 11.4 km was inaugurated on 8 June 2014, connecting Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar in the eastern and western suburbs of Mumbai.
