The bridge above the Western Express Highway is one which most people are watching closely; waiting for the completion of the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar West to East Corridor of the Mumbai Metro Phase 1.
It seems close as the two ends are destined to meet in the near future, right above the speeding cars. The basic structures along most of the route are almost complete. Overhead traction poles are also ready in a few sections.
The stations have reached the track level, except for the Asalpha station on the eastern end. From a design point of view, the metro stations follow a standard pattern throughout. The design and functionality is dictated by space more than anything else. The access points to the stations are yet to be built, and it will be interesting to see how they will look and function once ready.
The most interesting station is the Barve Nagar (Ghatkopar) station, which is built in a depression, and is also next to a hill. It is the largest structure on the line. The Andheri station looks smaller than what one would think would be necessary because this is where the line crosses the busy Western Railway Suburban Track.
On the Western Side, the DN Road/4 Bungalow section where the line will intersect the North-South Corridor is also a massive scene of activity. It would be a race against time for it to be ready along with the rest of the line.
