The Maharashtra cabinet cleared two new Mumbai metro railway line routes, an official in the Maharashtra Chief Minister’s Office said.
The Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority ( MMRDA), will complete both the Andheri East to Dahisar East route and the Dahisar East to D N Nagar route, which are expected to be completed by March 2019, at a total cost of Rs. 12,618 crore, the official said.
The Dahisar East to D N Nagar route, with 17 metro railway stations, is part of the Dahisar-Charkop-Bandra- Mankhurd Metro II project, whose estimated cost of the 18.6 km route is Rs. 6,410 crore, the official said.
The Andheri East to Dahisar East route which is 16.5 km long would have 16 stations and cost Rs. 6,208 crore, the police official said.
The fare collected on both routes would be Rs. 10 for the first three kilometres and Rs. 20 for upto 12 km, while the fare would be Rs. 30 for a distance of more than 12 km, the official said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to lay the foundation stone for these projects on October 11, the official said.
