Overstretched rail and street systems have made a dire requirement for a suitable high-limit transport framework inside of the Indian city of Mumbai, once known as Bombay.

The current rural railroad system, which is not intended for mass travel, needs to adapt to those going into the city consistently. In the 1950s, Mumbai delighted in a broad open transport framework, with cable cars, rail and transport benefits satisfactorily adapting to demand. In late times, then again, worker transport has ended up perilous with extreme congestion and more prominent street use. Indeed, even with the requirement for a reconsider, around 80% of voyages in Mumbai are made utilizing open transport, for the most part via prepare and transport, and the conclusion of the tramway in the 1960s is presently seen as a noteworthy arranging mistake.


There are 26 urban areas in India proposing to manufacture high-limit metro framework, with Mumbai the most recent to achieve the development stage.

Mumbai Metro : The network is intended to decrease movement blockage in the city, and supplement the packed Mumbai Suburban Railway system.

In June 2006, then-Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh established the framework stone for the first period of the Mumbai Metro venture. Development work started in February 2008.

Line 1 associate Versova, Andheri in the Western Suburbs to Ghatkopar in the Eastern Suburbs, covering a separation of 11.4 kilometers. Line 1 of Mumbai Metro has 12 stations in the V-A-G passageway, Versova, D.N.Nagar, Azad Nagar, Andheri, W. E. H., Chakala, Airport Road, Marol Naka, Saki Naka, Asalpha, Jagruti Nagar and Ghatkopar

The second passageway that was wanted to be inherent the first stage was the 32 km Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd course, which was wanted to have 27 stations. Like Line 1, Line 2 was proposed to be built on an open private association (PPP) model.

The line's development was incapacitated by the absence of accessible area for carsheds at Charkop and Mankhurd.The Union Ministry of Environment and Forests declined to give leeway for the depots.MMRDA authorities plan to tackle the issue by moving the area of the proposed rake terminal to Malwani close Malad.

Mumbai Metro will highlight the most recent flagging innovation, including programmed train insurance (ATP) and computerized motioning to control the high-volume of train developments on the 11.07km course. A four-minute interim administration is foreseen on the course.

Siemens will supply the flagging frameworks required for the venture, while Thales will supply the required correspondence frameworks. Motorola will supply its versatile Dimetra IP framework, an improved IP-based TETRA arrangement which guarantees mission-basic advanced radio correspondence over the rail systems.

The project is concentrating on the improvement of a naturally benevolent framework to end up Asia's first Green Metro, right from the development stage. A definite natural effect appraisal and possibility study to ensure the venture for LEED have been embraced.

Despite the fact that work is advancing on the first line of the Mumbai Metro, goal-oriented arrangements are set up to build up the framework into a nine-line network by 2021.
