Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) this week invited tenders from construction companies to build Mumbai Metro Orange Line (Line-5)’s Kasheli Depot (Package CA-151).
This metro train depot (car shed) along with supporting infrastructure is planned to be built on a 27.13 hectare land parcel (view on Google Maps) just south of Kasheli metro station under construction by Afcons Infrastructure in north-east Mumbai.
Besides administrative buildings, it’ll consist of a 690m long test track, stabling shed (SBL) with 30 lines, workshop shed (WSL) area with 3 lines, and an inspection shed (IBL) area with 4 lines.
Brief Scope: Construction of Depot Infrastructures comprising Stabling Yard, Operation Control Centre and Administrative building, Maintenance and workshop buildings, Auxiliary substation, Finishing, Plumbing, Earthworks for land development, Compound wall, Road, Approach Bridge and Undeground Utility Duct Works, Drainage, Rain Water Harvesting, Staff Quarters etc. Complete Including Architectural Finishing works and PEB Works for Car Depot at Kasheli for Metro Line-5 of Mumbai Metro Rail Project of MMRDA
- Estimated Cost: 472.02

- Document Sale Start Date: October 21, 2022
- Document Sale End Date: December 12, 2022

This line’s depot was originally planned to be built in Kon Village, but MMRDA faced stiff resistance in acquiring land. The new site appears to be surrounded by mangroves, so I envision it’ll be quite a while before all approvals are received for constructing site approach roads and the actual depot.
