Great News for Mumbaikars! Escalators are being installed at major 5 suburban Railway Stations in the Central and Western section.

A great relief rather a boon for the Mumbaikars from Cclimbing up and down the steps for crossing over the bridge from one platform to the other and one point to the other point of the station.

Railways are planning to install escalators at the railway stations Dadar, Thane, Kalyan, Andheri and Borivli. This facility has been planned by both the zonal railways have identified the most important, crucial suburban railway stations and proposal with basic plan with and estimate and has been submitted to the Railway Board , New Delhi for final approval.

Escalators are equally essential in Railway Stations like the airports. It will be a great boon not only for senior citizens but also the daily passengers, and the casual passengers, vendors, who keep carrying heavy parcels and luggage with them day-in-and out. This facility should have been extended to Mumbai city a decade ago.

I have been a traveler for the last 15 years in Mumbai, travelling from Vasai Road to Churchgate and I know the pain, the daily passengers suffer in the peak hours. Having limited facility of staircases in the stations, reserving separate staircase of entry and exit is not possible and no discipline was observed in the crowd. Be it seniror citizens, daily office goers or vendors, or students- all are climbing up and down at the same time, dashing with each other, rolling down at times is a pathetic scene.

Thank God, finally Mumbaikars can expect to use escalators and save themselves from the trouble of climbing up and down everyday.


As per the present plan, the beneficial stations will be as under:
1. Dadar:
- 2 Nos. of Escalators.
- Directiron ; Upwards only
- Platform No 3,4, and 6
2. Kalyan :
- 2 Nos. of Escalators.
- Directiron ; Upwards only
- Platform No .4,5 and 11
3. Thane
- 2 Nos. of Escalators.
- Directiron ; Upwards only
- Platform No .11
4. Andheri:
- 2 Nos. of Escalators.
- Directiron ; Upwards and downwards
- Platform No.1
5.Borivli
- 2 Nos. of Escalators.
- Directiron ; Upwards and Downwards
- Platform No 3,4, and 6

With this implementation, we can soon consider our Mumbai as a world class city and be proud Mumbaikars.
