The Western Railway will build 64 foot over-bridges over the next 2 years, 30 of which will be ready for use in 2019, a senior official said. WR had commissioned 19 FOBs in 2018 and 4 new ones would come up before the end of the current fiscal in March this year, he informed.

More Information:

  •  A greater number of FOBs on the suburban network would provide relief to commuters and also bring down instances of people trying to cross tracks to change platforms, he said.
  •  Plans to build FOBs in the metropolis gained momentum after a stampede on a narrow bridge connecting Parel and Elphinstone (now Prabhadevi) stations in September 2017.
  •  Meticulous planning and time bound execution was ensuring that FObs were being built at a fast rate across its network, Ravinder Bhakar Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) of WR said.
  •  That the Carriage Repair Workshop at Lower Parel had built a modified bridge inspection coach for speedy checking of these structures, the CPRO informed.
  •  He informed, an order for an 8 wheel overhead inspection car had also been placed with the Dahod Workshop.
