In view of the positive response of passengers to travel on the 11 km long Line 1 of the Metro running between Belapur Terminus and Pendar, Navi Mumbai, the City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) is considering operationalising Lines 2, 3 and 4.

More than one lakh passengers have traveled on Line 1 and as per the daily revenue report around INR 39 lakh has been generated from ticket sales made through both online and cash modes.

Joint Managing Director (JMD) Rajesh Patil said, “The response to Line 1 of the Metro is extremely positive,” Hindustan Times reported. “On an average, more than 15,000 passengers are using the line every day to travel from Belapur to Taloja, ensuring This has inspired us to commission other lines as soon as possible."

Consultants will soon submit the detailed project report for Lines 2, 3 and 4, which will connect to Navi Mumbai International Airport. Consultants appointed 5 months ago will soon submit the detailed project report (DPR).

All these lines are essentially extensions of Line 1 to enhance the transportation system for the upcoming airport. The proposed Lines 2, 3 and 4 will extend from Pendar, passing through MIDC Taloja and even parts of Khandeshwar. DPR for these lines is expected in 2 months.

The DPR for Line 8 is to identify the most suitable corridor to be followed to extend the services from Mankhurd till the Airport by CIDCO. 

For those unversed, Line 1 of the metro was commissioned on November 17.

Line 2: Khandeshwar to Taloja MIDC (7.12 km)

Line 3: Pendhar to Midc Taloja ( 3.87 km)

Line 4: Khandeshwar to NMIA (4.17 km)
