Railway/Metro/Stations

Mumbai Metro-Connecting safely and efficiently

Mumbai Metro, Mumbai’s first Mass Rapid Transit System, will cross Andheri’s JOG flyover on Western Express Highway at a height of 22m by a Cable Stayed Bridge for its first line – the VAG corridor. Extended Pier caps have been designed to avoid Piers at the centre of any traffic junction to allow larger spans – a first in the world for Metro Projects. 16 trains will be put in service with a four coach unit carrying 1500 passengers, reducing the travel time from 90 to 21 minutes.

Monorail Mumbai’s new travel option

Mumbai Monorail, based on straddle-beam technology, will make travel faster, easier and comfortable. It will also make it possible to introduce travel options in congested areas with twists and sharp turns.
