The entire 26.7-km Nerul-Belapur-Seawoods-Uran suburban line, once completed, will benefit the people of Navi Mumbai by providing direct access between Uran town, Jawaharlal Nehru Port and the newly developed area of Mumbai Metropolitan region as well as Greater Mumbai.

“This will connect newly rising suburbs of Ulwe, near which the Navi Mumbai airport is under construction,” the official said.

A total of four bridges, five road overbridges, 15 road underbridges and one track underbridge will be developed between the Nerul-Kharkopar section.

The official said a total of 40 train services (20 Up and 20 Down) are planned to run on the Nerul-Belapur-Seawoods-Kharkopar section. There are six stations on the new section — Nerul, Seawoods Darave, Belapur, Targhar, Bamandongri and Kharkopar.

On the Nerul-Uran stretch, there is a small branch line from Targhar to Belapur.
