Both the corridors will help ferry more than 10 lakh passengers daily, which will reduce the burden on the suburban railway network and BEST buses.

Eight years after Mumbai got its first east-west Mumbai Metro One corridor, the Maharashtra capital will get two more lines – Metro 2A and Metro 7 – which will be partially opened on Saturday.

Both lines are fully elevated and Metro 2A, running from Dahisar west to D.N. Nagar (Andheri west), and Metro 7, from Dahisar east to Andheri east, would immensely benefit the people in the north-western suburbs.

Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray will inaugurate the two new Mumbai Metro lines for public operation on the auspicious Maharashtrian New Year Day, Gudi Padva, on April 2.

All About the Two New Lines

Metro 7 is 33.50 km long with 29 stations when fully completed and Metro 2A will be 18 km long with 17 stations en route.

The two lines run parallel to the Western Express Highway, the Western Railway suburban section, the SV Road and the Link Road and they are considered to reduce road congestion and overcrowding in the local trains by up to one-third.

Both the corridors will help ferry more than 10 lakh passengers daily, which will have an impact on reducing the burden on the suburban railway network and BEST buses, and it will also decongest the city roads.

The development comes nearly 10 months after Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, along with Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat, flagged off the trial runs of these two lines last May.
