The Indian Railways has said that it has inaugurated several projects, including foot overbridges and escalators, to make travel more pleasurable for the over 75 lakh daily commuters on Mumbai's local trains.

Commenting on the issue, Rail Minister Suresh Prabhu told the media, "Our focus is on improving the passenger experience. Through these measures, we have fulfilled the long-standing demand of the commuters."

“At Borivali, a key railway station for Mumbai's commuters, a 300-metre-long and 10.5-metre-wide elevated deck has been built on platform number one, which connects all the five-foot overbridges as well as the skywalk.

The south end of the deck has a ticket booking office. An elevator has also been installed on platform number one, which connects to the deck, keeping in mind the problems faced by senior citizens and differently-abled persons,” he added.
