Mumbai: Railway Minister Piyush Goyal and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will on Thursday inaugurate the extension of Harbour Line services from Andheri to Goregaon, which will prove to be a boon for lakhs of Mumbai commuters.

Presently, the Harbour Line, a crucial direct connect for commuters desiring to travel directly to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus on Central Railway, is available only up to Andheri on Western Railway.

It is now being extended up to Goregaon on WR with the introduction of 49 new suburban train services, said Western Railway chief spokesperson Ravinder Bhakar, adding that this would immediately benefit more than 13,000 daily commuters between Borivali-Andheri who can now board the Harbour Line trains bound for CSMT from Goregaon.

Besides, Goyal and Fadnavis shall throw open a slew of commuter amenities like elevators at Borivali and Dadar stations on WR, escalators at CSMT, Dockyard Road, Thane and Lonavala stations of the CR.
