FOB at Dadar station connects all platforms

Western Railway recently opened a foot-over bridge (FOB) at Dadar connecting all platforms. This is the 100th FOB on the WR suburban section. WR has 92 FOBs and eight subways on its suburban section. It is also planning 12 escalators at suburban stations. The new FOB is six metres wide and connects platforms 1 to 5. It cost Rs 1.9 crore. Sharat Chandrayan, chief PRO, said: "To prevent trespassing and to make movement convenient for commuters, WR has taken up construction of 17 more FOBs at crowded stations such as Dadar, Borivali, Goregaon and Malad."
