Mumbai Metro: MMRDA to open metro line 7 in next two months

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is planning to open metro line 7 for the public, which runs between Dahisar East to Aarey Milk Colony, in the next two months.

If all goes as per schedule, commuters will be able to travel on the metro line 7, before the monsoons. The Commissioner of Railway Safety (CMRS) is in Mumbai to conduct the safety inspection of phase one.

Metropolitan Commissioner SVR Srinivas said that the CMRS team is in Mumbai over the weekend to inspect phase one of metro line 7. The MMRDA is leaving no stone unturned to finish and open the line for the public in 30-45 days after the compliances and clearances and sanctions are in place.

Motorists who have faced the nightmare of commuting on the arterial Western Express Highway (WEH) between Dahisar East and Aarey Milk Colony will get relief.

The partial trial runs on the corridor have already started.The metro line 7 is a 16.475 km-long elevated corridor from Andheri East to Dahisar East with 13 stations. Once functional, it will provide interconnectivity among the existing WEH, Western Railway, metro line 1 from Ghatkopar to Versova, the ongoing metro line 2A from Dahisar to DN Nagar, and the proposed metro line 6 from Swami Samarth Nagar to Vikhroli.

The CMRS safety check is the final statutory certification requirement before the line is opened to the people. The CMRS will inspect the entire Metro system which involves workshop, rolling stocks, stations, depot, corridor, track, and overhead equipment.
