Minister of State for Railways, Raosaheb Patil Danve, conducted a comprehensive inspection of the Vasai Road – Dahanu Road suburban section of Western Railway.

Issues addressed during inspection

During the inspection, Minister Danve addressed issues related to the Vasai Road – Dahanu Road section and closely reviewed the ongoing infrastructural projects, including the quadrupling work between Virar and Dahanu Road. The quadrupling initiative, managed by Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation (MRVC), has achieved an impressive 23% completion by December 2023, aiming to enhance the capacity and efficiency of the Virar-Dahanu section.

The quadrupling project on the Virar-Dahanu Road section, scheduled for completion by December 2026, stands as a pivotal step towards optimizing train operations and meeting the growing demands of the region.

Additionally, he evaluated existing passenger amenities, including lifts and escalators, over Western Railway’s suburban section, seeking insights into future plans for additional enhancements.

In a noteworthy gesture, Minister Danve inaugurated the "One Station One Product" stall at Dahanu Road station, featuring semi/processed food products.
