Reconstructed foot overbridge near Mumbai’s CSMT opened four years after collapse | Mumbai News

MUMBAI: Four years after its crash claiming seven lives, the reconstructed Himalaya foot overbridge near the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) in south Mumbai opened for the public on Thursday.
On March 14, 2019, a part of the bridge connecting the north end of the CSMT railway station to Badruddin Tayabji Lane collapsed onto the D N Road below.
Subsequently, a traffic signal was installed on the road at the spot which often led to traffic snarls. The reconstructed bridge’s girders are made of stainless steel and it has granite flooring, said a Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation official. An escalator will be installed for accessing the bridge from Badruddin Tayabji Lane soon, he said.
