The parties involved in the project include:

Phase I

Phase I began in 2007 and was completed in 2011.[1] The total estimated cost of the MUTP Phase I was 4526 crore (US$680 million). Most of the money was spent on railway projects, while less than a fourth was spent on road projects.

The following projects were proposed to be implemented under MUTP:[2]

The road projects included in MUTP were the Santa Cruz – Chembur Link Road (SCLR) and the Jogeshwari - Vikhroli Link Road (JVLR).[3]

Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi announced in 2012 that Phase I was completed.[4] In reality, some works had not been completed such as conversion of all Harbour Line services to 12 coach, and conversion from DC to AC had only been completed on Western Line. However, many of these have since been completed or are in planning stages.

The project is scheduled for completion in 2031.[6]
