“The skywalk connects the more recent south-end foot over bridge (FoB) to the more traditional south FoB. According to a WR official, installing a second walkway will help relieve traffic congestion on the old south FoB for vehicles going from Andheri’s west to east side.
“Currently, WR has a total of 141 FoBs between Churchgate and Dahanu Road for the convenience of passengers and to curb trespassing,” said an official.
