FAQ

Project

1. Why do we need metro in Mumbai?

Due to the city’s geographical constraints and rapid population growth, road and rail infrastructure development has not been able to keep pace with growing demand over the past several decades. To reduce congestion in the city, Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) like Mumbai Metro is an ideal solution. This will not only reduce the travel time but would also provide comfortable and non-polluting travel experience.

2. How are metro different from suburban train or monorail?

A rapid transit system like metro is a technologically advanced public transport system which operates on rail tracks in an urban area with high capacity, high frequency, is fast and is segregated from other traffic – underground tunnels (subways) or elevated above street level (elevated transit line). This system is automated with respect to operations and since it has a dedicated right of way, it is able to provide high reliability to its users. Whereas, monorail is a rubber tyre guide way-based transportation system which is guided on a single beam, with a much lower carrying capacity.

3. What kind of metro network has been planned for Mumbai

Like in Delhi, Mumbai Metro network has also been planned in phases. Versova to Ghatkopar via Andheri is the 1st metro line of Mumbai. As per Mumbai Master Plan available on MMRDA website following plan has been in discussion:

8. What is the reason for delay in start of commercial operation?

a) Mumbai Metro Line I is connecting east and west Mumbai, which is a big challenge for any
authority.
b) Since the right of way was so complicated, it took lot of time to resolve right of way issues.
c) Also, since Mumbai is an old city, it has lot of utilities running underground maps for which were
not available and thus designing the foundations and executing became big challenge, it is
evident from the fact that initially 11 foundation designs became 220 designs by the time of
completion.
d) However, the project has actually been developed faster than many other projects in Mumbai. It
is no mean feat to develop such a complex project with a steel bridge, cable stayed bridge,
construction in areas like Navrang Cinema, Golibar Road where all construction had to be taken
pre-casted.
e) Location of casting yard was 30 Kms away from the site, which presented a huge challenge in
terms of transporting girders to the site.
f) Permission for Railway Bridge itself took more than 4 years.
