January 31, 2022

THANE: The crucial Digha station on Thane-Vashi suburban railway route is likely to be made operational by December 2022, Shiv Sena MP Rajan Vichare, said Saturday.

Vichare who took a review of the ongoing station work located between Thane and Airoli on the Trabsharbour route said majority work here was completed. "The station could be thrown open for commuters from December 2022 and will be of great help for decongesting Thane and Airoli stations as nearby residents won't travel to these station to board trains.," he said following the revuew with MRVC and Navi Mumbai corporation officials.

It may be noted the construction of Digha station was part of the Kalwa Airoli elevated rail project under MUTP 3 and was started in 2016. However, the work was split in two phases considering the possible delay in rehabilitation of settlers along the route at Kalwa for elevated rail route and Digha station work was expedited.

The Rs 400 cr plus work is being executed by the Mumbai Rai Vikas Corporation and Digha station coating Rs 110 cr is part of it, he said. Adequate infrastructure for the station will be readied along with escalators, parking for vehicles, among others.
