Elevated roads leading right up to the station, inter-connected foot over bridges (FOBs), mini-malls above platforms, escalators and swanky new ticketing counters — these are just some features that the Dadar and Kurla stations soon boast of, according to senior railway officials.

Here’s what will be on offer at both the stations:

Dadar: to be remodeled at Rs 136 crore
The new plan makes space for an elevated road especially for taxis and vehicles coming to Dadar station. This will come up on the east side of the station opposite Swami Narayan Temple. Inter-connected FOBs will also be constructed over a total of 16,150 sq metres. A new 1,955 square metre space will be created for shops above the platforms as well. Twenty-seven scalators will be constructed between platforms and at entry/
exit points.

Kurla: to be remodelled at R50 crore
Railway officials are planning 10,460 square metres of interconnected FOBs at Kurla station. More ticketing space and a separate area for shops will also be created as part of the redevelopment plan. An additional plot of land will be created for a bus terminus. Like Dadar, 27 escalators will be constructed here as well.
