Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India] Feb. 27 (ANI): Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on Tuesday inaugurated the new Elphinstone foot-overbridge.

Speaking on the occasion, Goyal said, "Indian Railways is committed to building infrastructure quickly."

Before the inauguration, Goyal and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis travelled in a train from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station to Parel station.

The Elphinstone foot overbridge has been built by the Indian Army at a cost of approximately Rs. 10.44 crore.

"The foot overbridge at Elphinstone has been built by the Indian Army in a record time of 117 days," the Western Railways said.

The Army began the construction of the Elphinstone foot overbridge nearly two months after a tragic stampede at Elphinstone station on September 29 last year that took away lives of 23 people and injured over 30. (ANI)
