The Mumbai Metro 2A Line and Metro 7 Line that connects Dahisar to DN Nagar and Dahisar to Andheri East, respectively are anticipated to attain their safety clearance certificates by the end of March, reports mentioned.
The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) reportedly stated that this paves the way for both the corridors to become functional by mid-April. For any metro corridor, the safety certificate is given after inspections are undertaken by the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS).
MMRDA officials have been quoted in accounts elaborating on how the trail runs for both the corridors is completed. Adding that the safety inspection by the CRS is also nearing completion.
The first phase for Metro 2A is between Dahisar and Dahanukarwadi. Similarly, the Metro 7 corridor, will be between Dahisar and Aarey Colony. On the one hand, the Metro 2A corridor will stretch from Dahisar East to DN Nagar in Andheri through the Linking Road. While the Metro 7 corridor will run parallel to the Metro 2A corridor on the Western Express Highway between Dahisar East to Andheri East.
In other developments, the MMRDA is mulling offering commuters the opportunity of renting bicycles from outside the metro stations of the upcoming two corridors. MMRDA officials have reportedly mentioned that they are in talks with companies offering bicycles for rent. Adding that they are looking to have a dedicated space outside every metro station for the same.
