The skywalk between Bandra Terminus and Khar station

A senior Western Railway official said that by integrating Khar station with Bandra Terminus, the pressure on Bandra suburban station would be eased

The plan is to upgrade Khar station with an elevated platform and seamlessly link it with Bandra Terminus

The first part of the project, linking both the stations, was completed last year when WR commissioned a 314-metre-long skywalk connecting Bandra Terminus to the suburban network at Khar Road station, for the convenience of passengers of outstation trains arriving and departing from Bandra Terminus

"The skywalk, 4.4 m wide and 314 m long, was commissioned between Bandra Terminus and Khar Road on July 1, 2022. With it, passengers can reach any of the platforms of Bandra Terminus by deboarding at Khar Road station, and taking the Khar south-end foot overbridge, which is connected to the skywalk,” WR Chief Public Relations Officer Sumit Thakur said

“The ongoing work at Khar station involves upgrading the small station into a two-deck one. It involves the construction of an elevated deck over island platforms one and two, a home platform on the west side improving the entrance here, relocation of booking office and other buildings, and installing four escalators and three elevators," Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation’s CPRO Sunil Udasi said
