The Gokhale Road Over Bridge, spanning across railway tracks at Andheri will be closed from 11.30 pm on December 21 to 5.30 am on December 22, 2019 (for about 6 hrs) for repairing and load testing of its pre-stressed concrete girders. The Gokhale road users may use Jogeshwari Road Bridge or Milan Road Bridge.

The Western Railway had earlier in June 2019 completed works worth Rs 3.34 crore on the bridge. Starting in July 2018, in the first phase south carriageway was repaired by January 2019. At the request of state government, the carriageway had to be partially opened for scooters and three-wheelers even when repairs were underway.

The Western Railway worked with a constraint of the restricted work area. In the second phase, the North carriageway was repaired in a time period of approximately four months. The Railways undertook retrofitting PSC girders of West span over Harbour lines to avoid multiple disruptions to road traffic.
