Soon, Kalwa station will be two-storey like Sandhurst Road, as Railways have finally floated tenders to begin construction work on Airoli-Kalwa link that will connect Navi Mumbai to Kalyan-Kasara directly for local trains. 

An official of Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation (MRVC) said a rail flyover has been planned with a ballastless track and an elevated Kalwa station will be constructed that will include platforms, booking office, connected foot underbridges, staircases, and related works. The tentative cost of the entire project and the railway line is estimated at ₹476 crore.

The new line is expected to be completed by 2021. The line will run on an elevated section after Digha station and pass through parts of Kalwa. Most likely, the project will decongest Thane station and provide direct connectivity between suburbs in Thane, Kalyan, and Navi Mumbai.

One of the railway officials said the new platforms at Kalwa station will be used by the fast local trains and the existing ones will continue to be used by slow trains.
