Going towards Churchgate, the Western Railway has decided to shut down the foot over bridge (FOB) at Dadar Station from May 14. This happened after the audit report submitted by IIT-Bombay suggested its demolition.

In the report, it has been mentioned that the structure of the bridge is not safe and should be demolished. The WR informed that the South FOB at Dadar station will remain closed for the safety of passengers May 14 onwards. 

This bridge is heavily used by the passengers while moving through platforms on the West side of Dadar station. However, the report mentions that the 6.5-metre wide iron bridge which was built in 1993 is not ready to take such heavy traffic.
