Description The Mumbai Metro Rail Investment Project will finance a part of the cost of making operational about 58 kilometers of a section of the metro rail system in the metropolis of Mumbai, covering lines 2A, 2B, and 7. The investment project will finance rail track, signaling, control and feedback systems, and rolling stock. The investment project will also cover capacity and institutional development for establishing a metro rail operations organization.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Strengthening of urban mass transit systems, and increasing environmental sustainability of cities through the development of metro railways, is recognized in the country partnership strategy of ADB for India. The conditions in and around the suburban rail system, such as overcrowding, people falling from the trains, and people crossing tracks, caused over 3,000 deaths every year since 2006. The metro rail project will significantly improve transport safety by decongesting the existing suburban rail system and moving passengers to a modern and safer transit system. This project offers an excellent opportunity for ADB to participate in promoting railbased urban transport in one of the largest metropolises in the world. The participation of ADB will also bring in competitive good practices in large contracts for procuring rolling stock. ADB will also help establish an efficient and sustainable metro rail operations organization.
