I thought the WEH flyover was handed over to Hiranandani to develop the mall?

EDIT:
Saw this on the BLR Metro thread. It is about the Hyd Metro, which is being executed by L&T under PPP [BOT] like MM1.

Good for Hyd, but isn't this what help up majority of MM1?
Railways?

just a query - If some ones buys a Ticket for Local train from say Kalyan to Borivilli, currently Its just 1 ticket with interchange at Dadar.
Now if someone wants to use the same route after VAG is ready, that person will have to buy 3 tickets 1 till Ghatkopar on Local train then the Metro till Andheri, then from there- Local to Borivilli.

The cost will be much more and time saved may be negated by additional time to buy 2 additional tickets( 1 for metro and another from local from Andheri to Borivilli) and also additional interchange for metro which means walking to Metro station. So probably people using this route may not use Metro unless there is a single ticket.

Irrespective of this VAG will still be heavily used for people going to SEEPZ,Lokhandwala etc.

There have been several articles in the media that they will integrate the ticketing for the Metro, Mono and Local trains (not sure about BEST). They had even quoted MMRDA officials saying they are trying their best to put the infrastructure in place before the metro and the mono begin operations. Also, railways has already begun the process of phasing out the coupons and even shift passengers opting for daily tickets to the smart card (ATVMs). Hopefully, the same smart card will be accepted in all three (and BEST too).

Plans to add 44 more coaches to first Metro

A new traffic study is now forcing Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL) to take mitigating measures to ensure that commuters do not travel like sardines packed in a tin in Mumbai's first metro train from Versova to Ghatkopar.

A new traffic survey commissioned by MMOPL and undertaken


by a Hong Kong based consultant, MVA Systra, shows that traffic projections made for the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar (VAG) corridor were off the mark. The number of people travelling on the route is more than what was earlier expected.
In an earlier survey conducted by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation for Mumbai, it had been projected that in 2031 the number of daily passengers would be 8.82 lakh but the new survey has shown that it could be as high as 15 lakh.

“Metro will trigger steep increase in ridership in the first few years as realignment of traffic will happen. This will ensure that all the trains in operation will get occupied immediately,” MVA Systra said in its report.

As per the earlier estimates, the metro would have a ridership of 6.8 lakh commuters in 2015. The new report says that it could be over 7.2 lakh. In 2021 the number is expected to be 10 lakh as against the earlier estimate of 6.8 lakh.

An alarmed MMOPL has now written to the nodal agency Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) asking for permission to buy 44 more coaches (rakes) to ensure that the trains do not get crowded.

A proposal to buy the additional rakes was also put up during the MMOPL board meeting held last week. Under the original plan, MMOPL was to purchase 64 coaches worth over Rs. 700 crore from a Chinese company, CSR Nanjing. It had plans to deploy 16 trains of four coaches each into service when services would start.

It has now requested MMRDA to allow it to purchase 44 more coaches. The total cost of the coaches is around USD 72 mn and they can be either deployed as 11 new trains or used to augment the four-coach trains into six-coach trains.

MMOPL was planning to purchase these rakes earlier as well. However, the new survey results have now forced the agency to ensure that the orders are placed well in advance so that the metro does not get crowded.

MMRDA had proposed a single smart card to be used in BEST,railways,metro,monorail. BEST is onboard while railways as always are hard to please. MMRDA is stil goin ahead with remaing three. Railways have smart cards,coupons which hardly takes time to take out a ticket,i am sure even metro/mono wil something seamless like this . People wil stil same time if compared to anything movin on road

Two is fine.
BEST, Mono, Metro in one.
IR in the other.
The IR ATVM Card works on all CR/WR/Harbour lines so no issues.

The bridge construction is simply magnificent. Reliance deserves all the credit for constructing under such tough conditions. However, when are they planning to start the revenue service?

You can congratulate Reliance on having the presence of mind to sub contract it to them.

I guess it is JP Road-SV Road junction (or may be Andheri E-W bridge) from the description. Except for the person who named it, none would have heard of Rajiv Gandhi junction, why not use practical names?


And when are they going to open the closed roads? They promised that JP road near depot will be opened in 2 months. Now it is more than 15 months and yet no signs of opening it. Andheri Kurla Road-WEH junction is closed since mid 2008!!!

Has the viaduct at these place been complete?
Once they're done, they can't be kept shut.
