On the intervening night of 24th/25thMay, 2024, Western Railway took a block of 6 hours to replace steel plate girders of 62-yr old Bridge No. 90 o­n the Virar - Vaitarna section. WR achieved this remarkable feat by completing this work successfully in mere 6 hours which would have normally taken 8 hours.

A total of 28 PSC slabs and 7 retainers were used during the block. From the safety aspect of the bridge it was crucial to carry out this work since this was an old bridge made in 1962. The channel sleepers of the bridge required replacement. Shri Thakur added that completion of the work is animportant step towards increasing the sectional speed.It is also worthwhile to mention that the work was completed in record time of 6 hours. During this block other important engineering works were also carried out such as insertion of WCMS crossings, plain track tamping, insertion & examination of Switch Expansion Joints (SEJ), AT welding, unloading of ballast, etc. The success of the work is a remarkable feat in providing better and more safer train travel experience for passengers.
