Mumbai Metro: MMRDA finishes track laying on metro lines 2A and 7

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has finalised the appropriate documentation for submission to the Commissioner of Metro Railway Safety (CMRS), and Phase one of Metro 2A and Metro 7 is expected to begin commercial service soon.

Before starting a commercial run of Metro networks, CMRS permission is required.

A senior official said that the system is now ready to go on sale. Except for minor civil works at a few stations, they have completed all of the work.

Between Dahanukarwadi on Line 2A and Aarey on Line 7, the first phase covers 20 km (18 stations). Both Metro lines are estimated to cut traffic by 25%.

MMRDA had aimed to have these lines operational by October of this year.

This deadline was later pushed back to December 2020. The pandemic in early 2020 resulted in a lockdown, and work had come to a halt due to laborers returning to their homeland.

On both lines, commercial operations are scheduled to begin in October 2021 between Kamraj Nagar and Aarey through Dahisar.

The full stretch of lines 2A and 7 was scheduled to be commissioned on January 1, 2022, however that date was pushed back.

In the beginning, MMRDA intended to run Tl rake services every 15 to 20 minutes. The frequency will increase to five minutes per train when more rakes are added.

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority is a Maharashtra government agency in charge of preparing the MMR's Regional Plan and overseeing the region's infrastructure development.
