A new station after Panvel on the trans-Harbour line of Central Railway could become a reality after Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu responded positively to a Shiv Sena MP’s request to carry out a feasibility study in the face of a huge public demand.
Watch what else is making news:
The station at Bhingarwadi on the Panvel-Karjat line could serve the commuters of 11 villages beyond Panvel that are not served by the suburban railways now. People of these villages – Khanavali, Poyanje, Bhingarwadi, Bhingar, Shedung, Vardoli, Bherle, Belavali and Machiprabal, among others – have been facing innumerable difficulties in the absence of a railway station close to them.
