Mumbai: All railway Station Roofs In City To Be Fixed By May 2019

After Railway Minister Piyush Goyal’s push, Central Railway has set a deadline for completion of filling up holes in station roofs by May 2019, promising that all stations will be properly covered before the monsoon.

A senior official said it has now been decided to treat covers over platforms in the city as safety work, just like platform and foot bridge work. A number of stations in Mumbai are being upgraded and whenever passenger amenities are added, like footover bridge or anything else, then the roof cover is supposed to be removed temporarily. However, sometimes it is not put back.
