Mumbai: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) which has built a Metro network of over 200 kilometres in the national capital, will construct a Metro line in Mumbai from Dahisar West to DN Nagar in the western suburbs.

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) approved the decision at its executive committee meeting Thursday. The authority will finance the construction of the 18.5-km Dahisar-DN Nagar Metro. The DMRC will call for bids and execute it on a cash-contract basis.

The MMRDA executive committee also approved DMRC’s role as interim consultant in another Metro project – the 16.5-km Andheri East to Dahisar East line.

A senior MMRDA official said, “The DMRC will act as the interim consultant and we will soon appoint a general consultant for the project. Bids for construction of the two projects are also likely to be floated in about a month.”

The Dahisar West-DN Nagar Metro corridor is expected to cost Rs 6,410 crore. The Dahisar East-Andheri East Metro will cost Rs 6,208 crore. The MMRDA is planning to partially finance the Metro lines through a loan from the Asian Development Bank.

The MMRDA executive committee headed by Chief Secretary Swadheen Kshatriya also approved the purchase of 25 electric and hybrid buses from Tata Motors to ply within the Bandra Kurla Complex. Sanjay Sethi, additional metropolitan commissioner at the MMRDA said, “The demand for a bus service had been there for quite some time.”
