India : CR plans to construct skywalk between Dadar and PAREL.

A skywalk would be constructed by the Central Railway (CR) to curb the extensive trespassing that takes place between Dadar and Parel.

CR general manager Sunil Kumar Sood added, We were discussing amongst ourselves about connecting points between Kurla and Lokmanya Tilak Terminus when someone said that we need one between Dadar and Parel as well due to tresspassing. I have seen myself that people walk on the tracks as if it s a road. This is a very serious issue and a skywalk here would really help .

He further continued, During peak hour we have an interval of three minutes between two trains, if we stop at Parel this interval will run into three minutes and 40 seconds, thereby affecting the punctuality of the train.

Many commuters who travel by fast trains alight at Dadar and walk until Parel and then to Western Railway s Lower Parel station through the railway tracks between Dadar and Parel.

It is projected by Mr Sood that the skywalk is still in the planning stages and will hopefully get the needed approval nod.

As per CR official said on condition of anonymity, There are a lot of colleges and shops along the length of the proposed skywalk. So we are planning to have parts of it on the road itself and a part of it elevated so that there can be optimum use of the skywalk for us by commercially utilising it and not allowing it to lie vacant and unused like most skywalks.
