The work of the foot over-bridge (FOB) at the southern end of the Dadar station of Mumbai’s Western Railway was completed Monday. According to the Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC), the new FOB will benefit commuters using platforms 1, 2, 3, and 5 and the existing East skywalk.

The total length of the new FOB is 58 metre and width is 8 metre.

“The staircase for Platform No 4 could not be constructed due to the rains as foundations are close to the running track. Post-monsoon the staircase work will be taken up and it should be ready in two months,” the MFVC said.

The total project cost is pegged at Rs 8 crore approximately. The FOB construction work was initiated in December 2021.
