Parel rly stn is a disaster waiting to happen

 Commuters boarding and alighting at Parel railway station have warned of an agitation if Central Railway (CR) does not speed up the work on the pending new foot-overbridge (FOB) and initiate crowd control measures at the station. 
    Thousands of commuters use this narrow and the only foot-overbridge (FOB) at Parel station every day. The problem gets particularly grave during peak hours when there isn't any space for commuters even on the platform. And with Parel growing as a hub of several corporate offices, it is only going to get more crowded. 
    Commuters believe that it is only a matter of time that there is a stampede occurs at the platform. 
    In the last four days, angry commuters have barged inside the station masters office and lodged complaints and accused the CR of playing with the life of commuters. 
    AK Singh, Public Relation Officer for CR said, "The work of another FOB at Dadar end is going on at a war footing. We will also place RPF staff to ensure smooth movement and ensure no untoward incident happens."

During peak hours, many people are pushed to the edge of the platform, and one day someone is going to get hit by the train.It's a stampede waiting to happen

It's a nightmare to cross the FOB after one gets down from the train. It takes at least 15 minutes to cross it. A second overbridge is urgently needed

The platform is so crowded during the peak hours that even if someone trips, it could lead to a stampede. CR officials know this quite well, but they don't seem to care
