looking at the route plan of internal metro, I assume that it will have interchange with line 4 at two locations - one at mulund check naka and the other at kasarwadavli
So kasarwadawali will be interchage station between line 4 and Thane metro?
underground??? Which section of the route needs to go underground? strange?:hmm:
I would request TMC to keep it simple, having underground section and all will escalate the cost, will have difficulties to get it approved.

Short term Elevated is best but its an eyesore and takes up already limited land & road space but yes its cheaper but for long term durability, development plus utilizing land and asthetics underground is always best, shame its not more underground

TMC plans underground metro route to link old & new Thane

THANE: The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) is planning an underground route for the internal metro linking the old and new Thane metro stations as the dense localities along the stretch is proving to be a hindrance.
The 2.2km-long underground link will be part of the 29km-long ring route city metro project that will largely run on elevated levels across the city while only this stretch will run below the Naupada ward. The underground stretch will be nearly 12-25m below the ground level and bypass congested sprawls in and around the railway station area. There will be no halts between the two points as the intention is only to provide a faster connect between the two vital transport hubs in the city, said officials.
Officials said care will be taken to ensure the old utility lines of foundations of the old structures are not affected enroute. Officials added that the metro route will otherwise move on the surface or on stilts across the entire city. The final route and depth is being worked out by the Mahametro that will present the detailed project report to the TMC soon.
“The route has to be taken underground as there are several buildings on the internal metro route between the old and the new railway station. Working on the surface will possibly lead to damage to the old structures and so we are exploring the possibility of taking the route underground. A detailed project report, including the underground route, will be presented to the civic body soon,” said a senior official working on the project.
The internal city metro route that will run as a ring route will tentatively have 22 stations. The project was proposed to provide a faster and economic mode of transport to the residents of the city, specially those staying in far off corners like the Ghodbunder Road to reach the old city area and railway station.
Officials said that the route has been aligned with the high capacity mass rapid transit route that has been proposed from Kopri in Thane east. The metro route will run parallel to it from the new Thane station and diverge near the old station area. Sources said that taking the rails over the Central Railway tracks could have possibly delayed the work, thanks to the quantum of mega blocks required to be taken over the high capacity rail corridor.
The city metro will also act as feeder route to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority’s (MMRDA) Wadala- Kasarwadavli metro IV project. In addition, the TMC is likely to simultaneously develop bus stations and proposed pod car boarding points along the 22 metro routes stations, added officials.

^^ any news on interchange with Metro 4... also curious about it's route from Ghodbunder to Old thane, Thane station area... if route will also on GB Road, then GB Road have Metro 4, Flyovers and Internal Metro... don't you think GB Road will get congested?
The internal metro will only intersect with Metro 4 at two or 3\three places. It will go through the areas which are not covered by Metro 4 and will also act as a connector for thane station, metro 4 and other important areas and roadways.
The allignment will not pass through ghodbunder road but will only intersect it.

Metro ring route to connect distant corners of Thane

In order to boost connectivity via public transport in Thane, the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) is planning to construct a 29-km-long ring Metro corridor in Thane. The Metro, that will partially run underground, will connect the interiors of the city.

Increasing vehicular density in the city was the main driving force behind the internal city metro route that will run as a ring route. The 29-km-long ring route metro will provide faster and economic mode of transport to the residents of the city, especially those staying in far-off corners.

The Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the project is currently in the final stage.

Brijesh Dixit, Managing Director of MMRC said, "The proposed ring Metro in Thane will connect areas in the city rather than connecting with the neighbourhood cities. We are in the final stages of preparing the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the same."



Out of the total 29-km-long route, around 26-km will be elevated and the remaining 3-km stretch will be underground considering the traffic congestion near Thane railway station. The underground stretch will be nearly 12-25m below the ground.

The estimated cost of the proposed Thane ring Metro is expected to be around Rs 12,000 crore. The daily ridership of Thane ring Metro is expected to be around 5.76 lakh in 2025 which might go up to around 8.72 lakh passengers by 2045, predicts MMRC.

Apart from this, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has plans to connect Thane with south Mumbai, Bhiwandi, Kalyan, Dombivali along with Vasai and Virar via Metro. Of these, construction work on Wadala-Thane-Kasarvadavli Metro-4 has started earlier this year.

As per 2011 census, Thane city is the 16th most populated city in the country with a population of 18.9 lakh. The MMRC claimed, Thane has experienced rapid urbanisation during the last few decades. Hence, the projected population for 2025, 2035 and 2045 is expected to be 27.34 lakh, 34.99 lakh and 39.45 lakh respectively.

Mumbai Metro Keeps Thane Close: 29 Km-Long Ring Route To Connect All Parts Of City

Aiming to boost connectivity in Thane, Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) has planned a 29 km-long partially underground metro corridor that will connect interior parts of the city. One of the main reasons for the decision is the increase in vehicular density in the region.

The detailed project report of the project has reached its final draft and will be submitted soon. DNA quoted Brijesh Dixit, Managing Director of MMRC as saying, “The proposed ring Metro in Thane will connect areas in the city rather than connecting with the neighbourhood cities. We are in the final stages of preparing the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the same.”

26 km of the route will be covered through an elevated system and the remaining three km will be underground. This will be near the railway station in Thane, considering the amount of possible traffic congestion around that area. The cost of the project will be Rs 12,000 crore approximately. MMRC expects the ridership to touch 5.76 lakh by 2025.

The Wadala-Thane-Kasarvadavli Metro line work began earlier this year as a part of the Metro-4 project.

Since its' a ring route, it will have single or double track?

I am sure it will be 2 tracks. You wouldnt expect a person travelling 1 station in the reverse direction to go 29 kms in a circle.
