Strategically Placed FOB:

One of the standout features of this FOB is its strategic placement in an area surrounded by slums on both sides of the railway tracks. The need for such a structure becomes even more apparent as it serves to curb trespassing incidents, addressing a longstanding safety concern in the region.

"The 4 meter width of the FOB offers ample space for commuters, ensuring a smooth flow of pedestrian traffic. Comprising two staircases, each 3 metre wide, the design prioritizes convenience and accessibility" said an official of MRVC.
