MUMBAI: This Sunday, Western Railway (WR) will get its 37th station on the suburban network at Oshiwara. "The Oshiwara station will be inaugurated by railway minster Suresh Prabhu. All slow corridor trains will halt at the station for a few minutes after it is officially declared open," said WR's divisional railway manager Mukul Jain.
WR runs a 120-km-long suburban network between Churchgate and Dahanu. Another senior official said, "Apart from catering to slow corridor services, the station will also be used by trains running on Harbour line, whose extension work up to Goregaon is expected to be completed by March 31 next year. This will help decongest Andheri and Jogeshwari station."
station was proposed between Jogeshwari and Goregaon under phase-I of the Mumbai Urban Transport Project. The station was expected to be completed by 2008 but was stalled due to protests by locals, who demanded a Road Over Bridge (ROB) as an alternative to the level-crossing gate.
The ROB work began in 2009 but the delay in construction meant that the level-crossing gate could not be closed and the platform work for the station could not be completed for years. The gate on the busy track had been affecting punctuality of trains.
Meanwhile, political parties, especially members of the BJP and the Shiv Sena, have demanded that the station be named Ram Mandir as the nearby area is known as Ram Mandir.
A senior official said, "A proposal has been forwarded by the railways to the state government, which is expected to carry out the necessary formalities and follow up with the ministry of home affairs. I feel that it will be mostly likely renamed."
Oshiwara resident Ajay Shah said, "Locals have to travel to Jogeshwari or Andheri to board trains. We will save nearly Rs 30-40 that we have been spending on autos every day."
