India has laid foundation stones for two metro lines to be built with an investment of Rs150bn ($2.12bn) in its commercial city of Mumbai.
The two metro lines are Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan (Metro-5) and the Dahisar-Mira Bhayander (Metro-9).
The foundation stones were laid by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Once built, around 229,000 people will be able to travel on the 24.9-km Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan metro corridor (Metro-5), which will have 17 stations. This Rs84.16bn ($1.19bn) system is designed for six-coach trains, reported Press Trust of India.
Featuring eight stations, the 10.3-km elevated Dahisar-Mira Bhayander corridor (Metro-9) will be completed by 2022 and will be built with a Rs66.07bn ($934m) investment.
“The tendering process for the appointment of general consultants and contractors for civil works is underway and is due to commence in March 2019.”
The two metro projects are being executed by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA).
According to the plan, Metro-9 will be integrated with Metro-7 (Dahisar to Andheri) and Metro-2A (Dahisar-DN Road) along with the proposed Rs36bn ($509m) Gaimukh-Shivaji Chowk (Metro-10).
The tendering process for the appointment of general consultants and contractors for civil works is underway and is due to commence in March 2019.
Suburban line connects the north-western suburbs of Mira-Bhayander with Mumbai.
Work on many metro corridors is in progress including the DN Nagar-Mankhurd (Metro-2B), Andheri-Dhisar (Metro-7), Colaba-Bandra-Seepz (Metro-3), Dahisar-DN Nagar (Metro-2A), the Swami Samarthnagar- Jogeshwari-Vikhroli (Metro-6) and the elevated Wadala-Kasarvadavali (Metro 4).
Meanwhile, the Northern Railway division of Indian Railways is planning to use an empirical algorithm to predict train timings and keep passengers informed through SMS alerts.
