Come Sunday, commuters will have a new platform at Parel railway station.
Local train services towards Kalyan and Karjat will be operated from the platform.
On the same day, the Central Railway (CR) will impose a major block to complete the work.
The last phase of work on the new platform will be undertaken on Sunday. However, the termination and origin of local trains from Parel railway station will only be completed by December. This service is part of the Parel Terminus plan.
“The work will be completed during the block, and local train services will start operating from the new platform,” said SK Jain, divisional railway manager, CR.
Meanwhile, local train services will begin in full swing from the new platform only after the Western Railway (WR) completes the work of middle 12-metre foot overbridge (FOB) at Elphinstone Road railway station, said DK Sharma, general manager, CR.
WR has set a June-end deadline to complete the Elphinstone Road side of the FOB. The pink book released this year, which is issued after the budget, also mentions the construction of a new outstation terminus (coaching complex) at Parel workshop at a cost of ₹193 crore
