big-dog, Phase I elevated Line 1 should start operation before the end of this year but the opening date may even be sooner in late October.
In any case, there is no way the line can start commercial operation until it's achieved all safety certifications.

Line 1 consists of 12 stations over a densely settled 11 km connecting a north-western Mumbai suburb (Versova) to an eastern Mumbai suburb (Ghatkopar).

Dear patel2897, we already have an international thread for MUMBAI | Metro.

Also, please follow the thread-naming conventions and thread creation format for any new urban transport threads. Thanks!

MODs, please merge this thread with the existing MUMBAI | Metro thread.

Really nice project for dubai and much needed!

I was wondering though, why did they chose overhead powering instead of thrid rail? It looks a bit strange for a metro train. Now it looks like an elevated urban railway line

I'm sure n20 will take that as a compliment but
this is the thread for Mumbai.

No, i'm not sure.Might be due to the expense and time
it takes to implement ?

The project is already running behind schedule.

Well, the choice must have been taken way beforehand because either your trains are build to run on third rail or on above wiring.

I don't think third rail is that expansive compaired to above wiring. Aftherall, all those poles with insulators and stuff can't be cheaper than a third rail?
Are there underground sections of the metro? Because in case of third rail, tunnel construction would be actually cheaper I think

Third rail is even cheaper than catenary wiring. Itīs a quite simple thing to install compared to the careful work of wiring. I also think it depends where you buy trains and knowledge from, starting a new metro. Tunnel construction is not that cheaper anymore with third rail as most new tunnels are circular shield-driven tunnels and the needed height for catenary is not that big anymore.

Main advantage of overhead wiring: No interruption at switches, so no possibility of faults, causing fires.

Main advantage of third rail: Lives longer and maintainance is cheap.

Baiscally I think there is no good or bad in both solutions. It seems to be a cultural thing of engineering.
Metros in former Comecon and USSR use third rail. Same GB, F, D. Spain and Italy mainly focus on overhead-wiring since decades. New chinese and indian systems are mixed, which is very interesting. Japan has a lot of mixtures resulting from through-service with urban-rail. USA takes third rail, so influenced cities in South-America do, too.

Otherwise Buenos Aires took overhead-wiring from Spain whereas line B was build from german companies AEG/SIemens with third-rail standard.

Kind regards

Centre to release funds for third Mumbai metro rail corridor
By PTI | 3 Sep, 2013, 08.51PM IST

NEW DELHI: Urban Development Ministry will soon release funds for the first phase of the third Mumbai metro rail corridor.

The Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ corridor is being party funded by the UD Ministry.

"We will soon release funds for the first phase of the third Metro corridor. We have nominated Central government's nominees on the board of directors. Now the state government has to nominate their members on the board. They also have to appoint a full-time managing director for the third line," Mass Rapid Transit System director Prakash Singh said.

He, however, declined to reveal the amount of the instalment.

The two other metro rail corridors are Versova-Andheri- Ghatkopar and Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd.

The Reliance Infrastructure-led Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL) Wednesday assured its board that the Metro will start in December irrespective of whether the state grants the fare hike the consortium has sought, officials who attended the board meeting said.
However, officials said, the MMOPL also requested that the state intervene at the earliest and consider its proposal for a 130 to 150 per cent hike in tariff it has been seeking.

"They (MMOPL officials) have urged the government to look into the issue as soon as possible, but have shown preparedness to de-link the issue of commissioning of the Metro line and the fare hike, and address the two things separately. They have shown their commitment to start the Metro in December. They have clarified that they will start the line in December irrespective of their proposal for a fare revision," said UPS Madan, metropolitan commissioner at MMRDA.

As of now, the state has approved a fare structure of between Rs 9 and Rs 13 for the 11.4-km Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar corridor. The MMOPL has asked for the fare to be in the Rs 22-33 bracket.

An MMOPL spokesperson said, "The first Mumbai metro project under public private partnership is progressing well. The project is likely to be commissioned in this financial year barring unforeseen circumstances and subject to receipt of all approvals."

The MMOPL is a consortium of Reliance Infrastructure, Veolia Transport and the MMRDA. While Reliance Infrastructure and Veolia Transport hold a 74 per cent stake in the consortium, the rest lies with the MMRDA. The MMOPL board meets quarterly and roughly consists of two representatives of MMRDA, three or four from Reliance Infrastructure, and the principal secretary of the state urban development department.

The cost of the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro was Rs 2,356 crore. However, due to a delay in completing the project, the cost has swelled by Rs 1,935 crore

Tenders to appoint consultant for 3rd Metro line soon

TNN | Sep 17, 2013

MUMBAI: The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority ( MMRDA) is likely to float tenders to appoint project management consultants for the third Metro line between Colaba, Bandra and Seepz in the next few days.


"We have almost completed the work on preparing the tender documents, including scope of work for the prospective consultant," said a senior official said. The 32.5-km long underground Metro route has 27 stations. The project will be funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The official said that a formal agreement for the financial assistance is expected to be signed between department of economic affairs and JICA soon.

The estimated cost of the project is Rs 24,500 crore, of which JICA will extend 56 per cent loan. The work on the project is expected to begin by 2014.
