Metro 2B Work Resumes in Mumbai’s Vile Parle After Resolution of PIL

MUMBAI (Metro Rail News): Work on the Metro 2B (DN Nagar to Mandale) project has resumed on a section of SV Road in Vile Parle, Mumbai after the resolution of a public interest litigation (PIL) in December 2022. The stretch of the metro line in question runs alongside runway 8/26 of the Juhu aero-dome, and a homeowner had filed a PIL due to safety concerns.

Work on the Metro line had come to a standstill between the Indira Nagar and Nanavati
Hospital stations in Vile Parle due to the location falling in the funnel zone.
DMRC, which is executing the project, has started installing pier portals and will commence work on the viaduct once the piers are in place. The DMRC aims to complete the entire 2B stretch in the western suburbs by December 2024.

Although the Airports Authority of India had granted a No Objection Certificate in 2019 for the Metro corridor with an elevation of 16.76 m (above mean sea level), local residents had objected to the NOC, stating that the Metro line falls in the funnel of the runway and that there is a risk of aircraft accidents that could endanger residents.

At last, on December 22, 2022, the public interest litigation (PIL) was resolved after the director general of civil aviation submitted an affidavit indicating that the available “take-off run” (TORA) had been shortened to 645 meters from 1132 meters of total runway.
