Tender out for Rs 96 crore elevated Kurla Harbour station 4.7.2015 DNA: Money
One of the most ambitious suburban projects in Mumbai -- the creation of an elevated Kurla Harbour line station -- took off on Saturday with Central Railway coming out with a Rs 96 crore tender for the work. The plan is to award the tender by the first week of August and then get the work completed in 3 years, said Central Railways officials. The project comprises creation of a rail flyover starting from the north of Chunabhatti to the south of Tilaknagar stations with a three line Harbour station right above the current platforms 7 and 8. To be built on stilts, the elevated station would allow goods trains to move on the tracks at ground level while Harbour line trains 'fly' over them.

Currently, Harbour line trains wait for as long as 15 minutes as goods trains carrying coal or fuel cross tracks to get onto the fast track to move towards Thane ...
