The Western Railway (WR) on Tuesday commissioned a new foot over bridge (FOB) at Dadar station, for the convenience as well as safety of passengers.


"The new FOB which is located at the south end of Dadar station is approximately 58 meters long and 8 meters wide. The work has been completed at a cost of Rs 8 crore. This FOB is connected with platforms 1, 2, 3 and 5 and will facilitate railway passengers to change platforms easily, on one of the busiest suburban stations of the Mumbai Suburban section. Dadar station has 8 FOBs and caters to approximately over a lakh passengers per day," Sumit Thakur, Chief Public Relations Officer of Western Railway, said in a press release.
