Western Railways opens longest skywalk

The Western Railway’s longest skywalk from the Khar Road railway station to the nearby Bandra Terminus has been opened for the passengers to reach the platforms to board trains easily. The skywalk spans 314 m long and is 4.4 m wide. The platform connecting the two stations is also connected to the other platforms of Bandra Terminus Station. Western Railway’s noted that the skywalk will allow passengers to reach Bandra (T) directly by deboarding at Khar station and taking south foot over bridge.

Before the skywalk became operational, the suburban train passengers had to either get down at Bandra or Khar Railway Station to reach Bandra Terminus by walking.

The construction of the skywalk was carried out at a cost of around Rs 14 crore. About 510 metric tons of structural steel, 240 cum of concrete, and 20 metric tons of reinforcement steel were used for the project.

The skywalk will help connect the various foot over bridges (FOBs) of the railway station of the Bandra Terminus. A total of seven such bridges have been commissioned in the Western railway’s suburban section between 2022-23, Sumit Thakur, Chief Public Relations Officer of the Western Railway had informed.
