Elevated rail corridor

The Maharashtra government has asked the Railways to formulate a plan for an elevated corridor on the Harbour line, connecting south Mumbai to the upcoming international air­port in Navi Mumbai.

The proposal envisages bui­lding of an elevated corridor via P D'Mello Road which runs parallel to the Harbour line up to Wadala. The elevated corridor will cross over the Harbour line tracks at Raoli junction. Additional lin­es, either on surface or elevated, will have to be laid up to Vashi and beyond. People wor­king on the proposal suggest that tracks can be laid on the vehicular bridge above Vashi creek which is no longer being used.

According to a Central Railway official, the project is technically feasible as there is no space constraint. Since the government itself is keen on the elevated corridor, the pro­ject may not face any hurdles as far as land acquisition is concerned.
