Bridge Number 73 from Bhayander-Panju Isle (in the district of Thane) is 1,430 metres long, while Bridge Number 75 from Panju Isle-Naigaon (in the district of Palghar) is 550 metres.
Indian Railways’ 156-year-old two open bridges that fall under the Western Railway zone spanning two arms of the Thane Creek between Panju Isle-Naigaon and Bhayander-Panju Isle are being dismantled. The two bridges- 1,980 metres long in total, were built in the year 1864 – the same year as north India’s first railway station was set up in the form of Delhi Junction to connect the national capital with the then Calcutta. Both the bridges were constructed by the Bombay Baroda & Central India (BB&CI) Railway and are 6 metres wide. Bridge Number

73 from Bhayander-Panju Isle (in the district of Thane) is 1,430 metres long, while Bridge Number 75 from Panju Isle-Naigaon (in the district of Palghar) is 550 metres, the Western Railway zone confirmed to Financial Express Online.
According to Western Railways, on 12 April 1867, the first train on the then Backbay-Virar sector ran. For nearly 120 years, the two strategic bridges served the national transporter on Western Railways Mumbai-Delhi and Mumbai-Ahmedabad routes. The zonal railways said these two bridges handled all Mumbai local trains from Churchgate to Virar, long-distance passenger trains including Rajdhani Express, Jammu-Tawi Express, Frontier Mail, or Ahmedabad Passenger and other trains with many halts en route, other than heavily-laden freight trains.
According to the Western Railway zone, Bridge Number 75 was sold in February 2020, but due to COVID-19 lockdown, it could start the dismantling work only from 5 November 2020. Now, almost 80% of the dismantling work is completed and more than half the scrap delivery is done. The dismantling work on Bridge Number 73 with gas cutters started on 20 December 2020, and approximately 35% progress has been achieved. The entire dismantling work of the upper portions would be over by the end of January as per current trends, before the work on the pillars rooted in the waters of Thane Creek is taken up.
For several years, these two bridges were utilized by the public of the 2.50 sq km vehicle-free Panju Isle, housing a population of approx 1,500. As per some estimates, the Western Railways could rake in an amount of around Rs 3 crore from the 1,450 tonnes scrap iron that would be generated from these bridges.

Politicians question Western Railways over trains skipping halts from Palghar station as part of the revised timetable, ask why stops in Gujarat have not been removedThis picture has been used for representational purpose Why have halts been removed only in Maharashtra and not in Gujarat?" Palghar MLA Sreenivas Wanga on Tuesday publicly questioned the railways, alleging bias after the Western Railway skipped train halts from Palghar station as part of the revised timetable. The issue promises to snowball into a major controversy after Members of Parliament (MP) Arvind Sawant and Rajendra Gavit supported the cause. The issue came to light after members of the Dahanu Vaitarna Pravasi Sevabhavi Sanstha (DVPSS) procured the ticket reservation charts of Palghar station, and alleged the halts of two express trains, Swaraj Express and Bandra-Ajmer Express that had been given a halt at Palghar after MP Arvind Sawant's efforts, had now...

been revoked. "This is despite the ticket reservation charts showing good revenue collection from Palghar. These chart pictures are proof that Western Railway officials have removed the stops at Palghar not due to lack of revenue or patronage, but some other reasons. No stops from Gujarat have been removed. Maharashtra was purposely targeted here. We won't accept this injustice to Palghar district. Officials must answer on what basis stops were removed or else restore them immediately," Palghar MLA Shrinivas Vanga said. "There was a meeting with the Western Railway this morning and the issue was on the agenda of Palghar MP Rajendra Gavit for discussion. I will also be following it up," MP Arvind Sawant told mid-day. "We have requested the Western Railway to restore the said halts. Palghar is a district head-quarters and few select trains halt here. If they also start skipping the halts, it is a matter of great injustice and bias," Mahesh Patil of DVPSS said. "Most of the Mumbai-bound trains halt at Borivli (Mumbai) which is quite unfair considering only this single stop is provided in Maharashtra and rest in Gujarat," Himanshu Vartak, consultative committee member, Palghar station said. WR officials said they will examine the issue. mid-day has been writing about the simmering discontent among railway passengers on both Central and Western Railways with the revised timetable. Indian Railways has been on a mission mode to improve the speed and efficiency of trains and create corridors for maintenance, but it could raise a major controversy with a number of public representatives and activists opposing the removal of halts, and conversion of regular passenger trains into express ones.

of people travel from Mumbai to Konkan destinations during the festival.
Last week, the Maha Vikas Aghadi government had asked Indian Railways for Ganpati specials but then put the decision on hold. However, Friday, it gave permission to start booking and launch special services.
The Central Railway and WesternIt is becoming a difficult choice for the MVA partners and there are several issues like people's demand, people's opposition, and the threat of Covid-19 spread.
Both, Central Railway and Western Railway accordingly made plans to operate special trains from 11 August-5 September. The trains were to run from Chhatrapati Shivaji MaharajTerminus and Lokmanya Tilak Terminus on CR and Bandra Terminus and Mumbai Central on WR.
Nearly, 200-odd services would be run by CR and WR. Meanwhile, the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation is running buses from the Mumbai metropolitan region (MMR) districts which include Mumbai City, Mumbai Suburban, Thane, Palghar and Raigad. The passengers would have to get their Covid-19 swab tests done.
The financial capital of Mumbai and its suburbs have a close connection with the south Konkan districts Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg, as more than 20 lakh people from the twin districts work and stay in Mumbai.
This comes as an exception to the existing guidelines as inter-district travel in Maharashtra except for the Mumbai metropolitan region is not allowed. Those who desire to travel need to obtain e-passes.
