MMRDA Announces Tender For Mumbai Metro Line 12 Extension

According to the MMRDA’s statement, the extension project, with a total length of 22.173 km and 19 stations, is expected to be completed by October 2025, at an estimated cost of Rs 5,865 crores

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has taken a step towards enhancing connectivity in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region by floating a tender for the extension of Mumbai Metro Line 12 (Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan) to Navi Mumbai’s Taloja area.

The decision to extend Metro Line 12 comes after a comprehensive transport study conducted by the agency in 2008, which highlighted the urgent need for improved transportation infrastructure to support the region’s expanding population and development. 

The extension aims to connect the existing Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan and Navi Mumbai metro lines, resulting in a circular route that links Mumbai, Thane, Bhiwandi, Kalyan, Dombivli, and Navi Mumbai.

According to the MMRDA’s statement, the extension project, with a total length of 22.173 km and 19 stations, is expected to be completed by October 2025, at an estimated cost of Rs 5,865 crores. 

The agency emphasised that the extension has been planned to enhance connectivity and foster development in the Kalyan-Dombivli region and the Navi Mumbai International Airport region.

The project is expected to bring significant benefits to commuters, including saving up to 45 minutes of travel time for those commuting between Kalyan and Taloja. Additionally, it is anticipated to stimulate commercial and real estate development around metro stations, create jobs, and drive economic growth by attracting investment.

Moreover, the extension is projected to alleviate traffic congestion and air pollution by encouraging commuters to opt for public transport over private vehicles. As more commuters shift to using the metro, fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions are expected to decrease, thereby improving air quality and public health.

The MMRDA has appointed SYSTRA S.A- DB Engineering & Consulting GmbH as the general consultant to supervise the construction and system works of Metro Line 12. Furthermore, M/s. LKT Engineering Consultant, in a joint venture with Enia Design, has been appointed as the Detailed Concept Consultant (DDC).

With the extension of Metro Line 12, the MMRDA aims to expedite the development works in Mumbai and the surrounding areas, ensuring seamless connectivity between Taloja and various destinations such as South Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane, Mira Bhayandar, and Virar via the metro network.
