Elphinstone & Currey Road station FOBs to miss Jan 31 deadline


Mumbai: The foot over-bridges being constructed by the Army at the Elphinstone Road and Currey Road railway stations will miss the January 31 deadline due to some technical issues, railway officials said today. It may take another fortnight to complete the FOB construction work at these two stations, they said.

“The construction of the Elphinstone station bridge may get delayed by a fortnight. The Army has sought a railway block for the launch of the girder on the bridge,” the senior Western Railway (WR) official said.

“We have given our go-ahead for the railway block at the end of this month,” he said. According to the official, after the railway block gets over, it will take another 15 days for the Army to complete the construction of the bridge or may take some more days. However, the Army engineers at the Elphinstone Road station bridge site refused to comment on the revised deadline.
