Mumbaikars are up for a delight on the occasion of Gudi Padwa, the Marathi New Year as Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will inaugurate sections of two new Mumbai Metro lines on April 2.

Metro services on the first phase of Line 2A and also Line 7, both in western suburbs, will be thrown open for commuter use, nearly eight years after the mass rapid transit system made its entry into the city.

Addressing a press conference at MMRDA headquarters in Bandra Kurla Complex, Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) commissioner SVR Srinivas said the phase one of the two Metro lines will be opened for public use on the same day or next morning after inauguration of the 20.17-km-long corridors (their combined length), which have 18 stations.

Metro Line 2A is between Dahanukarwadi and Dahisar, while Line 7 is between Aarey Colony and Dahisar. The Metro services will be operated between 6 am and 10 pm.

The trains to be deployed on the elevated corridors are designed for driverless operations along with communication-based train control (CBTC) signalling systems.

However, during the initial phases, the trains will be manned by operators or attendants, including a few female pilots.
