Route Details for Mumbai Mono Rail

The main idea behind the Mumbai monotrail is to ease congestion in the highly crowded Jacob Circle, Wadala and Chembur areas. Once implemented, and tested successful, the same system is expected to be implemented in other major cities of India such as New Delhi and Bangalore.

L&T has claimed that it'd be completing the entire project i a duration of just 30 months. The Malaysian firm Scomi will hold a 45 per cent stake in the project while, the majority 55 per cent would be with L&T. The project involves design, construction, installation, testing and commissioning and integrated testing, including train trial with initial operation and maintenance from Gadge Maharaj Chowk (Jacob Circle) to Wadala (about 11 km) and Wadala to Chembur via Mahul (about 9 km) corridor. Overall, the Mumbai monorail will have 18 stations in it's entire route.

Each train would have four cars capable of accommodating 700 persons. The Mumbai monorail will adhere to the highest safety and reliabilty standards followed internationally. Apart from reducing consumer stress by providing a crowded traffic free commutation system, the monorail will also provide lower costs and an eco-friendly design. It also has sleek exteriors and its air-conditioned cars add to the customer comfort.
