Metro 6 of the Mumbai Metro, also referred to as the Lokhandwala-Jogeshwari-Vikhroli-Kanjurmarg corridor, 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, JVLR, 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 Infinity Mall in Andheri, with Metro 3 at SEEPZ, with Metro 4 and the Mumbai Suburban Railway at Jogeshwari and Kanjurmarg, and with Metro 7 at JVLR. 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]

Stations[edit]

The line will consist of 13 stations starting from Swamy Samarth Nagar in Lokhandwala Complex, Andheri (West) to Vikhroli (East). It will have interchanges with Lines 2, 7, 3 and 4.[5]
