The Mumbai Metro: Everything That You Need to Know

Here is a comprehensive introduction to the Mumbai metro map, Mumbai metro route, Mumbai metro stations, and the most recent advances in the Mumbai Metro construction.

The plan to build the Mumbai Metro began in 2006, when the fundamental basis for phase-I according to the Mumbai Metro map was placed, with the goal of providing alternate connectivity to Mumbaikars. However, delays in the Mumbai metro project were caused by operational and policy delays. Only three Mumbai Metro routes have been operational as of today. Two of them are new Mumbai metro lines.

The first phase of the Mumbai metro routes ‘Metro 2A’ (Dahisar to DN Nagar) and ‘Metro 7’ (Dahisar East to Andheri East) opened to passengers on April 2, 2022. The new metro lines, which were inaugurated by chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, are projected to carry more than 3 lakh passengers each day. The first section of the new Mumbai Metro 2A route runs from Dahisar to Dahanykarwadi, whereas the first phase of the new Mumbai Metro 7 line runs from Dahisar to Aarey colony.

There would be 11 trains with six carriages operating for both Mumbai metro routes, with 8 or 9 being operational and the rest being standby. The Mumbai metro trains will run every 10 minutes and would be operational for over 19 hours a day, from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.

According to HT, the second phase of Mumbai’s two new metro lines could open in October 2022. In January 2022, the two new metro lines in Mumbai acquired the ‘Research Design and Standard Organization’ (RDSO) certificate, which was issued in two phases.

On February 22, 2022, approximately half of the required inspection of the delayed Phase 1 of Mumbai metro lines 2A & 7 between Dahanukarwadi and Aarey was completed, according to the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS). According to a TOI article, CMRS has requested 7 days to complete the inspection, which began on February 19, 2022. The inspection will cover signaling, OHE, civil works, stations, and platforms, among other things. On March 25, 2022, the Mumbai Metro received its safety certificate.

Mumbai Metro network and corridors

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is implementing the Mumbai Metro route network as it expands beyond the Mumbai region.

At the moment, only one Mumbai metro line is completely operating, while two more are being built in stages. In Mumbai, eight metro lines are under construction and five have been approved. The first line opened in June 2014, and two other new metro lines in Mumbai will open in April 2022. Mumbai has 14 metro lines, with two more being added in the future. Metro Line 2B (D N Nagar to Mandale), Metro Line 4 & 4A (Wadala-Kasarvadavali–Gaimukh), Metro Line 5 (Thane to Kalyan), Metro Line 6 (Swami Samarth Nagar to Vikhroli), and Metro Line 9 (Swami Samarth Nagar to Vikhroli) are all under development in Mumbai (Andheri to CSIA and Dahisar to Mira Bhayander).


All of these Mumbai metro lines have already begun civil construction, according to MMRDA, and are projected to be completed by 2022-2024.

The 2A section will be an 18-kilometer corridor with 17 Mumbai metro stations connecting Dahisar, Charkop, and DN Nagar. Due to community requests for metro stations to be site specific, the MMRDA renamed 15 of the 17 stations.
