Mumbai : Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announced on Tuesday that the Indian Army engineers have been tasked to design and construct commuter bridges at three Mumbai railway stations. The bridges will be built on Elphinstone Road, Currey Road and Ambivali stations of the Mumbai suburban railway. The move comes after 23 people died in a stampede on the Elphinstone foot over-bridge on September 29This lead to an outrage from the common man and the opposition. Asking army to build a pedestrian bridge is the most demotivating for railways engineers who build some of complicated bridges in India — Capt.Amarinder Singh (@capt_amarinder) 31 October 2017 You’re doing what General Kaul did with the 4th Div before 1962 war with China. It will set a very bad precedent. Pls avoid.

Overhaul Mumbai’s rail infra on a war footing instead — Milind Deora (@milinddeora) 31 October 2017 If Army has to build the overbridges in Mumbai post #elphinstonestampede , either the Railways is incompetent, or underequipped, or both.
