Commuters using Dadar station on the Central Railway (CR) line will experience a major shift in platform numbering starting today, December 9, 2023.  The decision, supported by both Western and Central Railways, aims to eliminate perplexity arising from identical platform numbers.


Dadar station, a vital junction facilitating the operation of nearly 1,050 Western Railway trains and around 900 Central Railway trains daily, currently boasts 14 platforms, seven under Western Railway and seven under Central Railway. As part of the initiative, the existing platform numbers 1 to 7 on the Central Railway side will be renumbered as 8 to 14, while Western Railway platforms will retain their current numbering.


Central Railway in a statement said that this change aims to streamline operations and provide clarity for commuters. "All preparatory work, including changes in platform indicators, is set to be completed by midnight on December 8, with the new platform numbering system taking effect from December 9," stated the official.


The initiative is expected to enhance the overall commuter experience and operational efficiency at Dadar Station, known for its substantial daily footfall on both Western and Central Railway sections.

With the comprehensive changes set to be implemented, commuters are advised to take note of the renumbering and anticipate a smoother travel experience as Dadar Station adapts to the new platform configuration. The initiative reflects a collaborative effort between Western and Central Railways to address commuter concerns and optimize the functionality of one of Mumbai's busiest railway stations.
