It has ambitious plans to hold the Metro’s trial run on August 15, 2010, instead of an earlier date in October. Moreover, it plans to complete work by December 2010.
MMRDA commissioner Ratnakar Gaikwad said the exhibition run will be from Versova to Azad Maidan on J P Road, Andheri.
Gaikwad admitted that the initial plans were to have a Metro train run in May but it had to be postponed as the track was not ready.
MMRDA joint project director Dilip Kawathkar said the run will be executed on a 2 km stretch of the line.
Commissioned in February 2008, the civil work — construction of pillars for 12 stations and 12 km long viaduct — for the Versova-Andher-Ghatkopar metro line is now 60% complete, claimed MMRDA’s chief of transportation and communication wing P R K Murthy and director for Metro rail S P Khade. They say the piling work was 72% complete while that on stations and depot was more than 50% was over.
However, some MMRDA technocrats are sceptical whether the Metro would be able to meet its project deadline of December 2010, arguing that constructing all the 12 stations, Versova Depot, assembling of rakes, laying of tracks and commissioning the entire system with 16 four-car rakes will surely take time. Another challenge before the Metro is clearing a stretch of land for construction, due to various encroachments. Nevertheless, clearing of public property on the approximately 1.5-km stretch between Saki Naka and Golibar Road has now gained momentum. There are also two to three religious structures that are being shifted.
Other were optimistic. “Except for a few small acquisition hurdles and Railways permission, MMRDA has given almost 97% rightof-way (ROW) on the corridor for construction. Changes in the design have been made due to lack of full width available on the road and to meet the deadline,” claimed a top MMRDA official. “The work should be smoothly over by this year end,” hoped additional metropolitan commissioner S V R Srinivas.
It was what residents of Andheri like Mahesh Sood and Yogesh Joshi, hoped for too. “We wish the frequent traffic jams, heavy sound and air pollution get over this year alone. But looking at the existing status, it may take more time,” says Joshi, a civil engineer by profession.

The only thing I can think of that meaning is that it was an earlier announced date in October.

Yeah probably that's what it is. I hope it gets completed by December. I want to travel in the train when I visit the country during the time.

I dont think so, the metro would not have the luggage compartments which the suburban trains have.

On a serious note, I am surprised why CSR Nanjing built such doors. I have seen such kind of doors mostly on very old trains. New trains either have doors outside the train surface or they are along the surface and push out while opening.

I have read that doors which go inside the walls like this pose maintenance problems.
