By , TNN

MUMBAI: The metropolis will get its first double-decker bridge on P D’Mello Road at CST that will have railway tracks and a motorway.

On P D’Mello Road, tracks will be constructed at an elevated level and cars will ply above that as the Eastern Freeway will be extended up from Orange Gate to GPO junction.

Central Railway (CR) plans to shift the Harbour line corridor to the west of CST. “The relocation is being done to free up existing Harbour line tracks between CST and Masjid.

These tracks will be used for the fifth and sixth line project on the Main line corridor,” said a senior CR official. “The proposal to have a rail and road link is the first of its kind in the city,” said CR general manager SK Sood. More info
