Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray on 31 May 2021 flagged off the trial run for Metro 2A and Metro 7 Corridors, which run along the Link Road and Western Express Highway in Western suburbs of Mumbai.

The commissioning of both the lines is planned in two phases. Phase-I (20 km) between Dahanukarwadi to Aarey (18 stations) is expected to open in October 2021 while the entire corridor is expected to open in January 2022.

The maiden trial run commenced from Aakurli Metro station on Western Express station after it was flagged off.

The oscillation trial of prototype six-car rake will be conducted on Line 2A (Yellow Line) and Line 7 (Red Line) at various speeds. The sub-systems, other equipment will be tested under dynamic conditions. Integration with signaling, telecom and platform screen doors will be tested along with different safety tests.

Once the oscillation trials are completed, the train-set will then be offered to the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) for inspection and certification.

A total of 10 train-sets will be available by October 2022. The commercial operations are planned in October 2021 in this stretch (Dahanukarwadi to Aarey via Dahisar) on both lines.

While Metro 2A is 17.5 km long, Metro 7 that runs between Dahisar and Western Express Highway Metro station, is having a length of 18.6 km.

Nearly 93 percent of the civil works for both these lines have been completed and system works are ongoing in full swing. The entire network is expected to be ready for testing and trials by the end of December 2021.

Both these Metro lines were sanctioned by THE state government on 6 October 2015. The Bhoomipujan was performed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 11 October 2015.

As of now only one line of Metro (Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar) is operational in Mumbai. This 12 km long east-west Metro corridor was opened in June 2014.
