The Scope of work included design verification, SITC of Electrical & Mechanical, Fire Detection, and Fire Suppression Systems including DG Sets for 17 stations from Dahisar east to Dahanukarwadi (Kamaraj Nagar).

The execution of the project complied with the Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP), zero EHS incidence, zero community grievances, complete customer satisfaction, and got clearance from the Commissioner of Metro Rail safety.
On April 2, 2022, Line 2A was flagged off by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri Uddhav Thackeray.
This Mumbai Metro line, which runs parallel to the Western Express Highway, will help in decongesting the city roads and overcrowding of local trains by up to one-third. This new line can ferry more than 10 lakh passengers daily, which will significantly reduce the burden on the suburban railway network and BEST buses. Besides reducing traffic congestion, this new metro line will also prove to be eco-friendly as it will help in curtailing both air and noise pollution.
