Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd, which is constructing the link between Versova and Ghatkopar, plans to commission the waste water treatment plant with a capacity to recycle five lakh litres of water daily at Versova. State-of-the-art waste water treatment plant has been built at Metro's Versova car shed where the trains would be housed for repairing and cleaning.

"The waste water treatment plant is expected to be started by May. Once commissioned, the unit comprehensive waste water treatment plant will ensure that water used in operating the Metro gets treated and pumped back into the system thereby achieving zero-waste discharge," a MMOPL spokesperson said. Ahluwalia Contractors India Ltd have been put on the job by MMOPL.

Expressing solidarity with the United Nations' proclamation of the year 2013 as the "International Year of water Cooperation", Mumbai Metro One has undertaken this unique initiative in light of the increased demand for water.

"The project will not only aim at creating awareness about responsible water use, treatment, and disposal, but also encourage water conservation at a time when the country and Maharashtra is battling with large-scale water shortage," he added. The daily water requirement at MMOPL's Versova Car Shed would be of 3 lac litres for domestic usage and another 0.5 lac litres for industrial as well as few additional requirements for other plants and equipments.

Finally, for the first time, the first metro rail of Mumbai rolled out of the Versova car depot on Friday evening.
“The trial process started on Friday evening and the metro rail rolled out of the Versova car depot to run up to Azad Nagar (also known as Indian Oil Junction),” confirmed SVR Srinivas, additional metropolitan commissioner, Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA).
MMRDA officials will hold the trial run officially on May 1, which is Maharashtra Day.

Earlier this month, dna had reported of trial runs likely to be conducted in the second half of April in order to meet the deadline of August 2013 when the metro is expected to be opened for public use.
As per the plans, the 11.07-km-long Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar metro will be opened for public in two phases. The first phase will be between Versova and Airport Road station in August and second between Airport Road and Ghatkopar by December 2013. The entire route will be ready for public use only by end of December or early next year.

In the weeks to come, Research Design and Standards Organisation will check rolling stock, followed by other certification, including one from Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS). As per the tentative schedule prepared, CRS will commences supervision only in the first week of July.

Implemented by Reliance Infrastructure-led consortium Mumbai Metro One Private Limited, work on the first route had commenced in February 2008.

Mumbai: Senior metropolitan officials on Friday had a nearly 3-km Metro ride from Versova depot to Azad Nagar station on J P Road. This was probably the first-ever trial with officials aboard though ‘technical dry runs’ have taken place earlier.

“It was a technical trial ahead of the official trial we are planning, the date for which is yet to be fixed. Such trials will continue till then. It was a good experience. We are all satisfied with the smooth ride we had,” said additional metropolitan commissioner SVR Srinivas.

Srinvas said the officials of Reliance Infrastructure-led Mumbai Metro One Private Ltd (MMOPL), the Veolia Corporation of France which is supplying the rakes, and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) were aboard the train during the trial.

The MMOPL is planning to hold the first commercial run on 7 km of the total 12 km Metro route from September onwards. The 7 km route is from DN Nagar-Versova depot up to Airport station in Andheri (E). The entire 12 km route is from Versova up to Ghatkopar via Andheri.

“These trial runs are important ahead of the safety certification to the entire via duct and the train operations. The Metro’s certification will come soon as the entire via-duct is ready. The work on the depot and most of the stations is on the verge of completion,” revealed an MMRDA official.

The Metro fare would be 1.5 times the BEST bus fare.
The project, costing Rs 2,356 crore, will have 16 six-car trains that promise to carry over 10 lakh (1 million) commuters a day.
