To ensure the convenience of passengers, Western Railway has decided that the closed MCGM Foot over bridge at Santacruz station will be opened for commuters o­n 1st January, 2019 from East to West skywalk over railway portion and connecting staircase o­n PF No. 3/4.
According to a press release issued by Shri Ravinder Bhakar - Chief Public Relations Officer of Western Railway,the east side staircase will be started o­nly after 31st January, 2019 as the MCGM office and pay & use toilet below east side staircase is yet to be dismantled.
The encroachment below staircase o­n west side o­n MCGM land is also yet to be cleared, causing delay in taking up replacement of steps o­n west side. It will take a month after clearing of encroachment for recasting of west side staircase. The MCGM Foot Over Bridge at Santacruz was constructed in 1971. The length of this FOB is 90.3 m & width is 6 m. After joint inspection in the month of August 2018, it was decided to rehabilitate Santacruz (MCGM) FOB since the condition of concrete deck slab was not satisfactory. The FOB had been closed for major rehabilitation o­n 11/12.09.2018. Commencement of work was delayed as a result of delay in permission to start the work, o­n account of Ganesh festival as Santacruz station witnesses' huge crowd during this season. The actual work was started o­n 25/26.09.2018. The duration for execution of work was permitted for 2 hrs 10 min o­nly (i.e. 1.50 hrs – 4.00 hrs). Due to delay in commencement of work, the replacement work got prolonged from 30.11.2018 to 21.12.2018.
