MMRDA builds Metro 1-Metro 7 FOB in record 15 days

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority has constructed a 58-metre-long foot over-bridge linking the Mumbai Metro 1 and Mumbai Metro 7 lines in a record 15 days, MMRDA Commissioner S V R Srinivas said this week.

The project linking the two lines at Western Express Highway Station and Gundavali Stations respectively is part of the project to integrate the Mumbai Metro network, said Srinivas.

The new FOB is a 4-8 metres wide superstructure will help commuters interchange between the two lines with ease, said Srinivas. The FOB structure has used around 340 tonnes of steel, including reinforcement and structural steel, and it involved clearing several hurdles, including shifting public utility lines from the site.

The MMRDA chief said that the Gundavali Metro Station junction is a very congested one and the new FOB will provide people hassle-free interchangeable connectivity between the Lines 1 (Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar) and 7 (Dahisar East-Andheri East).

At the same time, the infrastructural works on the second phase of Metro-7 and Metro 2A (Dahisar-DN Nagar) are complete, and after inspection by the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety, shall be fully opened to the public, said Srinivas.

The phase one operations of both these lines started in April 2022, while the trial runs for the second phase have been going on for almost the last three months.
