The Mumbai Monorail is an under construction monorail system for the city of Mumbai. It is being contracted by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority and it will be the first monorail in India
There are four lines proposed. The first two are 25 kilometres (16 mi) long. Out of the two, construction on the first line has begun.
- A line running from Malabar Hill to the Bandra-Kurla complex via the Haji Ali Dargah, Jacob Circle, Wadala Road, Sion Hospital and Dharavi. This is planned to open by 2011.
- A line from Thane to Bhiwandi via Kalyan.
Two lines 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) long are to be constructed after the first two open.
- Chembur to Jacob Circle via Mahul. This route is planned to open by Dec 2010. (May get extended to Vashi, Navi Mumbai.)
- Lokhandwala Complex to Kanjurmarg via Oshiwara.
Additionally previously planned Mumbai Metro corridors are also being examined to be made as monorail corridors instead of Metro Rail by MMRDA due to dense and congested areas these corridors pass through, and monorail technology is thought to be more flexible to make its way in congested and dense areas. The corridors are:
- Hutatma Chowk – Ghatkopar - 21.8 km
- Ghatkopar – Mulund - 12.4 km
