Ghatkopar Station All Set To Get Two FOB's and Elevated Deck

In order to curb the crowding at Central Railway's Ghatkopar Station, Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation (MRVC) has proposed an elevated deck and two Foot-Over Bridges (FOBs) at the station. Moreover, it will also make the similar advancements in many other local stations in Mumbai.

Ghatkopar has experienced a surge in the crowd since the Metro 1 (Ghatkopar-Versova) was commissioned in August 2014. The elevated deck – 8.5-m wide and around 270m long – has been proposed over platform number one. Of the two FOBs that will come up on the north side, one will be 12-m wide and another 6-m wide.

The FOB's and connectors will help in decongestion and smooth passenger movement. Notably, MRVC has similar plans for Govandi, Mankhurd and GTB Nagar stations in Central Railway and Mumbai Central, Kandivali, Mira-Road and Khar stations in Western Railway.
