Mumbai Metro - D.N. Nagar will be the intersection station

Work on Mumbai Metro is moving at full force. Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar line of 11 km will be ready by December 2010 and work will begin soon on 32 km Chrkop-Bandra-Mankhurd line. It will be completed by 2016.

There is a also a plan to create an intersection station at D.N. Nagar. Commuter can switch from one line to another to have seamless connectivity. When the metro stations are located near a suburban railway station, commuters will be able to switch the lines there as well.

Exciting stuff for the commuters, though D.N. Nagar traffic is going to see construction related delays through 2016.

There is also indication of the fare system. Rs 8 for 3km, Rs 10 for 8 km, Rs 12 for 12 km, Rs 14 for 15 km, Rs 18 for 20 km, Rs 20 for 25 km, Rs 24 for 35 km, and Rs 27 for distances beyond.
