Part of skywalk near Charni Road rly station crashes, two injured”

A staircase of a foot overbridge (FOB) collapsed in Mumbai's Charni Road station on the Western Line on Saturday night due to which two people suffered injury, reported ANI. Goyal said the FOBs would now be "mandatory" at all stations.

Incidentally, it was the same FOB, which links the Elphinstone Road and Parel railway stations, on whose staircase 23 people had died in a stampede on September 29. As per a PTI report, the deadly tragedy took place when the overbridge, linking Elphinstone Road and Parel suburban stations, became overcrowded with people taking shelter from a heavy downpour. The traffic police had given the clearance to reconstruct the FOB on the condition that it should be done in phases.

As reported by Times of India, the BMC official said the Charni Road FOB was old hence they chose to fix it. Later, permission was granted but on a condition that work be done in phases.

As per reports, there were plans to reconstruct the bridge, so the BMC had started dismantling one end of the FOB in order to reconstruct it, but in phases. And while BMC began the work, the whole project got stuck in the labyrinth of permissions and jurisdictions, mainly between the BMC and railways. Railway officials said they have given all permissions for the FOB revamp and requested the BMC to expedite the work.
