The Metro-2 and Metro-7 projects were launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to the Mumbai last October. Running 16.5km long new line from Dahisar (East) to Andheri (East) will cost Rs.8100 Crore. Two new Metro lines that will be linked to the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar line and to a proposed integrated BEST bus service were approved by the state cabinet on Tuesday, with a March 2019 deadline.
The two lines will run parallel to the Western Express Highway between Dahisar and Andheri, and are aimed at providing greater connectivity to the western suburbs.
Unlike Mumbai’s first metro line that was built on the public-private-partnership model, these two lines will be built by the state’s Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) through loans (cash-contract basis).
