Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

Owing to in­creas­ing traf­fic on the Thane-Be­la­pur Road near Turbhe rail­way sta­tion, the civic body has de­cided to con­struct a foot over­bridge (FOB).

Last month, a mother-son duo from Turbhe Store, was killed in an accident while cross­ing the road.

The pro­posed FOB will be con­structed at a cost of Rs20 crore.

“The speed break­ers we in­stalled a few months ago seem to have caused more con­ges­tion. Hence, it was de­cided to con­struct an FOB and re­move the speed break­ers,” said San­jay De­sai, ex­ec­u­tive en­gi­neer, city engi­neer­ing depart­ment of Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (NMMC).

Ac­cord­ing to the of­fi­cials, the con­struc­tion of the FOB will be com­pleted within the next two months.

Turbhe res­i­dent Anil Ku­mar Singh said, “The FOB will help pre­vent ac­ci­dents and save time.”
