Commuters fume as newest station Mumbra turns out to be the only station on the stretch without elevators or lifts

New platforms at Mumbra station only ones without lifts and escalators, commuters unhappy

The new Mumbra station


The new Mumbra railway station platforms that opened last week are the only ones on  the new Thane-Diva stretch without any escalator or lifts. The material for escalators is lying outside the station for years now, and a land dispute is being blamed.

The new platforms that opened last week are on the opposite side of the residential area due to changes in the alignment. The earlier CSMT-bound slow platform, which was abutting the road and did not require climbing any bridge, has now been converted into a fast local platform where trains do not halt. The slow platform has now been shifted to the other side, leading to commuters facing issues.
