India's first monorail - Mumbai Monorail - will be commissioned by Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on February 1.

Earlier the plan was to get a political dignitary from the union government to do the honours, but mumbai/report-mumbai-monorail-clears-safety-signal-all-set-to-roll-1954439" target="_blank">unavailability of the Prime Minister kept delaying the project inauguration.

The first phase of monorail will run between Wadala and Chembur, a stretch of 8.93 kms.

The monorail will be open for citizens between 7 am to 3 pm from February 2.

Initially the frequency of four coach monorail will be every 19 minutes. Daily it will be run between 7 am to 3 pm. Gradually the operational timing will be increased along with more frequent trains.

The second phase between Wadala and Jacob Circle is scheduled for completion in mid-2015.
