Traveling from this skywalk has become very convenient as earlier passengers traveling in suburban trains had to reach Bandra Terminus on foot from Bandra or Khar railway station. The new skywalk was built at an estimated cost of Rs 14 crore. About 510 MT of structural steel, 20 MT of reinforcement steel and 240 cm of concrete were used for the construction. This skywalk will connect all the foot over bridges of Bandra Terminus.

Two-foot over bridges were commissioned a few months ago on the Western Railway to make travel safer for passengers at Charney Road Station and Ville Parle Railway Station. The FOB on Charney Road is 36 meters long and 6 meters wide, while the FOB at Ville Parle station is 55 meters long and 6 meters wide. About seven skywalks have been commissioned in the Mumbai suburbs.
