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).
The 18.6-km long Dahisar East-DN Nagar line is part of the Dahisar-Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd corridor (Metro-2) and will cost an estimated Rs.6,410 crore. It will have 17 stations, with a car depot at Malwani.
The second line, from Dahisar East to Andheri East is 16.5-km long and will cost an estimated Rs.6,208 crore. This is an entirely elevated line, with 16 stations and is part of the Metro-7 corridor. The car depot will be at Dahisar, on Central government land.
The MMRDA will contribute Rs.4,212 crore; another Rs.5,049 crore will be raised through loans from national and international financial institutions. The remaining funding is expected to come through equity by state and Central governments. Sources said the Asian Development Bank is likely to be the funding agency for both projects. The state government has decided to kick-start the actual work in the next few months, before the bidding process to select contractors starts.
In the proposal cleared by the cabinet, the proposed fare for both phases is Rs.10 for up to 3km, Rs.20 for up to 12km and Rs.30 as the maximum fare.
The projects have been tagged an Important Urban Transport Project, and the MMRDA has been nominated as the special planning authority. The government has also proposed to levy a premium on additional FSI on land within 500 meters on both the sides of the corridor. The revenue generated from this premium will be shared between the state and MMRDA.
The project has also decided on getting revenue from advertisement and parking at the car depot.
