A Mumbai Metro train passes through a residential area during its first official safety trial run in Mumbai on May 1, 2013. The Mumbai Metro transit system - whose full passenger service of the first phase will be thrown open to the public later this year, is designed to provide commuting relief to the city's residents who are caught in chronic congestion on the city's notoriously choked roads and is the country's third metro system following Kolkata and New Delhi.

Mumbai begins tryst with Metro

1 May 2013

On the occasion of Maharashtra Day, Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on 1 May 2013 promised Mumbaikars that the state's first Metro from Versova to Airport Road in Mumbai will be commissioned in September. Flagging off the first trial run between Versova and Azad Nagar, a three-km stretch, Chavan added that the next stretch on the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro - from the Airport Road to Ghatkopar - will be commissioned in December. Chavan said trials will continue for the next few months as a prelude to securing certification from the railways' safety commissioner.
