Line 6 of the Mumbai Metro, or the Lokhandwala-Jogeshwari-Vikhroli-Kanjurmarg Line, is part of the metro system for the city of Mumbai, India. This line is fully elevated.

Plans[edit]

The 14.47 km long Lokhandwala-Jogeshwari-Vikhroli-Kanjurmarg Metro-VI corridor is to have 13 stations and cost Rs. 6,672 crore. It is to be an elevated corridor.

It is to connect Swami Samarth Nagar-Lokhandwala in Andheri in the western suburbs to Vikhroli and Kanjurmarg in the eastern suburbs. The stations include Lokhandwala Complex, Adarsh Nagar, Momin Nagar, Jogeshwari-Vikhorli Link Road, Shyam Nagar, Mahakali Caves, SEEPZ Village, Saki Vihar Road, Ram Baug, Powai Lake, IIT Powai, Kanjurmarg (W) and Vikhroli - Eastern Express Highway. Metro 6 is to provide interchange with Metro 2 at Adarsh Nagar, with Metro 3 at SEEPZ, with Metro 4 at Kanjurmarg (West), with Metro 7 at Jogeshwari Vikhroli Link Road and the Mumbai Suburban Railway at Jogeshwari on Western Railways and Kanjurmarg on Central Railway. Construction is to begin by December 2018.[1] [2] It is to be ready by 2021-22.[3]

History[edit]

The line was approved by Chief Minister Fadnavis on 19 October 2016. The MMRDA issued a tender to conduct a detailed aerial mapping survey of the alignment in April 2017. Authorities were to determine the location of trees along the alignment with an accuracy of up to 10 cm, utilizing a differential GPS (DGPS), while a digital aerial triangulation system is to help determine the types of trees, their heights and diameters.[4]
