Navi Mumbai Metro Line Phase I Starting Operations By Dec 2021?

CIDCO is looking forwards to start the Navi Mumbai Metro line Phase I in operation by the end of this year. There are a total of 11 stations in Phase I but CIDCO is planning to start only 5 stations for now in December 2021. CIDCO officials said that they are expecting to start commercial services between Kharghar Central Park to Pendhar, Taloja. However the remaining stations under phase I will start in the year 2022.

Navi Mumbai metro line was always a talked about subject from the time it had been announced by CIDCO. And people from Kharghar and Taloja were eagerly waiting for the metro line services to start for many years and this announcement by CIDCO will be a great relief for people from Taloja.

The metro project was getting delayed for various reasons, and Now CIDCO has appointed Maha Metro to take the work at a faster pace. Maha Metro has already deployed a dedicated team of 20 engineers for ground-level works. And CIDCO has reportedly allocated special office space for the Maha Metro officials at Taloja.

Last week, officials from CIDCO and Maha Metro visited the site and examined the present status of the Navi Mumbai Metro line project.
