Back in April 2020, Studio Archohm had released a small render of Mandapeshwar Station (formerly IC Colony) with a design similar to that of Line-7’s Akurli Station which is in an advanced stage of completion. Here’s a new full blown render of it:

In May, MMRDA invited bids for similar facade works on its 16.5 km Line-7 stations, so with this development, local residents in Mumbai’s western suburbs should start seeing facade works commencing on both Line-2A and Line-7’s stations by the start of Q4 2020.

    1) What’s the progress of DN Nagar Station of the Yellow Line, it’s hardly any progress have been done, even the concourse pier haven’t been erected.
    2) According to the sources the Mumbai Metro Green Line will have 2 depots, one in Mogarpada and one in Gaimukh, but I think 2 depots aren’t enough for a 57 km metro corridor, it should require at least 3 depot to operate the corridor.
