PM Modi to inaugurate Navi Mumbai Metro’s 5.96-km stretch

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to visit Mumbai on January 19 to inaugurate the 5.96-km stretch between Central Park and Belapur stations of the Navi Mumbai Metro.

Additionally, the 35-km stretch of Mumbai Metro’s 2A and seven lines will likely be commissioned in Modi’s presence that same day. However, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis are due to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos between January 15 and 19.

In April 2022, then Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray flagged off the first phase of the 2A and 7 lines, the 20-km stretch from Dhanukarwadi (Kamran Nagar) to Aarey Colony in the western suburbs of Mumbai. Passing through Link Road and Western Express Highway (WEH), these Metro lines are expected to reduce traffic from these significant roads and help alleviate crowding in existing suburban local train services. On average, this stretch has been drawing 25,000 riders daily.

Once the entire stretch of these two lines with 30 stations and a 35-km elevated corridor is operational, it is estimated that it will be able to carry nearly 300,000 passengers daily, according to officials of Maha Mumbai Metro Operations Corporation (MMMOCL), which takes care of the metro rail’s operation and maintenance.
