Railway Minister Piyush Goyal inaugurated the Andheri-Goregaon Harbour Line stretch at an event held at Goregaon
station on Thursday.

Forty-nine regular services will start daily on the 5.12-km line from 1 April, railway officials said.

"The Harbour Line will be further extended till Borivali," Goyal said, adding the Union government has undertaken projects worth Rs 54,777 crore for improving the railway infrastructure in Mumbai.

The event, which was delayed by over two hours, started after Goyal's arrival at the station at around 9 pm.

Goyal, who flagged off the inaugural train at 10.08 pm, said he was stuck at the Mumbai airport for some 45 minutes since the aerobridge could not dock into the plane.
