Western Railway Appoints Contractor for Jogeshwari Terminus Project

Western Railway has chosen a contractor to construct a terminus at Jogeshwari for long-distance trains serving passengers from north and western regions of India. The new outstation terminus will be situated on the eastern side of the tracks, between Ram Mandir and Jogeshwari suburban stations.

The target completion date for the civil work is June 2024, with a budget of approximately Rs. 36 crore allocated for platform construction, approach road, booking office, control tower, foot overbridge, and track. The terminus will be accessible from the Western Express Highway and well-connected to suburban and Metro lines, facilitating smoother travel.

Plans include shifting 12 trains from Mumbai Central and Bandra terminuses to Jogeshwari, with the potential for new services and enhanced suburban connectivity. The terminus will feature a single island platform capable of accommodating two trains simultaneously, with a length of 600m to accommodate up to 24-coach trains.

Ancillary works such as ticketing windows and waiting rooms will also be undertaken, while maintenance facilities will not be built as trains will halt and depart within 60 minutes of arrival, ensuring safety and efficient operations.
