Woot India's First Monorail Opens in Mumbai


Maharashtra Chief Minister Mr. Prithviraj Chavan inaugurated the country's first monorail service in Mumbai. Announced way back in 2008, the monorail has finally been made available for public use after a delay of more than 2 years. The monorail is not just the first in the country but also across the sub-continent.



The Rs. 3,000-crore project is being implemented in two phases. The second phase will take another year for completion.
said Prithviraj Chavan.

The project has been divided into two phases.
Phase one is the Chembur-Wadala route which is 8.8km long. It covers 7 stations namely, Wadala depot, Mysore colony, Bhakti Park, Bharat Petroleum, V.N. Purav Marg, Fertiliser Colony, and Chembur.
Phase two
is the Wadala-Jacob circle route which is 11.2km long. It covers 11 stations, namely, Chinchpokli, Chembur Naka, Wadala Bridge, Mint Colony, Acharya Atre Nagar, Antop Hill, Wadala, GTB Nagar, Fertilizer Company and Bharat Petroleum.

Phase two will take another year. MMRDA has already spent Rs.1900cr of the 3000cr provided for the project.
Initially the monorail will operate with only four coaches which will be increased to six along with the frequency very soon.



Here are some interesting facts about the Mumbai monorail:
  • The Fare will range from INR 5 to INR 11 for the first phase.
  • Maximum speed: 80 kilometres per hour (50 mph)
  • Average speed: 65 kilometres per hour (40 mph)
  • Each four-car train can accommodate 568 commuters, whereas a six-car train can fill in 852 passengers.
  • In one coach, 18 passengers can sit while 124 can stand
  • Timings: 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for the initial weeks, which will be later changed to 5:00 a.m. to 12 midnight.
  • 7,400 passengers are expected to use the monorail during peak hours.
  • 1.25 lakh passengers are expected to commute via the monorail every day.

Re: India's First Monorail Opens in Mumbai

Well I wonder when that hideous metro will be completed in Mumbai. Everytime I drive on that flyover which has the metro bridge passing over it, I almost crap my pants.

If the construction of this monorail is anything like the upcoming mumbai metro, I bet we will have an accident within a year from launch.

One set of the monorail is already open.

ANd the Metro has been ready to go for quite a few months...they are just doing some safety checks and will be launched within 2-3 months..
