In a decade, Western Railway would need a third terminus



Western Railway’s two termini – Bandra and Mumbai Central – might soon need a helping hand. The railway authorities believe that the two termini is likely to get saturated in the next 10 years and would require WR to have a third terminus for its long-distance train operations.

Speaking on the issue during a media interaction, Hemant Kumar, GM, WR, agreed as much. “This city will need another terminus because our operations are increasing every passing year and Bandra terminus and Mumbai Central, will soon get saturated,” said Kumar.

Kumar said that while the vast land parcel required for such a terminus would obviously mean it will have to be in the northern parts of the city, he refused to give any specific location for it. “We need to carry out studies to find a plot large enough for a terminus,” said Kumar. More info
