Mumbai Metro’s Yellow Line (lines 2A, 2B) is a 42.20 km under construction elevated metro line connecting Dahisar East with Mandale through 39 stations.

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is the owner of the Yellow Line. A new nodal agency called Maha Mumbai Metro Operations Corporation (MMMOCL) was established in June 2019 to operate and maintain services on all lines owned by the MMRDA.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is the implementing agency of the line through a formally signed agreement between MMRDA & DMRC in 2015.

The Yellow Line is partly being financed through official development assistance (ODA) loans from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and New Development Bank (NDB). Its foundation stone was laid by the Prime Minister in October 2015, J Kumar Infraprojects won contracts for 2 civil packages of its first section in July 2016, and construction work commenced in November 2016.

The Yellow Line is expected to open in 2022 and will be connected to other metro lines, bus and suburban rail services through multiple interchanges throughout its route. Along the way, 3 “iconic” bridges are planned at to be constructed at BKC Entry, Vakola Nalla Crossing and Mithi River Crossing.

The line’s official colour was revealed to the public on February 28, 2020 as part of a major branding exercise to establish style guidelines with help from Systra MVA Consulting.
