Goyal gave officials a week's time to prepare the plan so that it can be discussed with chief minister Devendra Fadnavis. The general managers of Central and Western Railways and the managing director of the Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation attended the meeting and briefed him on the various projects in the pipeline.

He asked officials to check if any of these overlapped the city's Metro network and proceed accordingly. Goyal also pushed for cab signalling through the Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) to increase the frequency of train services.
