The Mumbai Urban Transport Project (MUTP), formerly the Bombay Urban Transport Project (BUTP), is a project formulated by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) to bring about improvement in the traffic and transport situation in the Mumbai metropolitan region with the assistance of the World Bank.

Background[edit]

The parties involved in the project include:

Phase I[edit]

Phase I began in 2007 and was completed in 2011.[1] The total estimated cost of the MUTP Phase I was INR4526 crore (US$730 million). Most of the money was spent on railway projects, while less than a fourth was spent on road projects.

The following projects were proposed to be implemented under MUTP:[2]

The road projects included in MUTP were the Santa Cruz – Chembur Link Road (SCLR) and the Jogeshwari - Vikhroli Link Road (JVLR).[3]

Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi announced in 2012 that Phase I was completed.[4] In reality, some works had not been completed such as EMU service between Virar and Dahanu Road, conversion of all Harbour Line services to 12 coach, and conversion from AC to DC had only been completed on Western Line. However, many of these have since been completed or are in planning stages.

Phase III[edit]

Phase III of the Mumbai Urban Transport Project was approved on 8 December 2011. It will cost INR52000 crore (US$8.4 billion). The feasibility study for the project cost INR100 million (US$1.6 million).[6] The project includes a fast corridor from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus to Panvel with a connection to the proposed new Navi Mumbai International Airport, extending the Harbour Line to Borivali, and multiple additional tracks being laid on existing routes. The project is scheduled for completion in 2031.[6]
