The railway was extended as double track from Palghar to Dahanu Road on 17 January 1898, and continued as single track up to Gholvad on 18 October 1900. On 16 April 2013 Western Railway Started Services For Dahanu Road Station i.e. Churchgate-Dahanu Local Train(EMU)
In 2002 Western Railway announced that it would extend the EMU service from Virar up to Dahanu Road. On 16 April 2013 Western Railway Started Services For Dahanu Road to Churchgate Using EMU Trains. In January 2012 the Vasai and Virar Municipal Corporation started litigation to force the railway to run direct services from Mumbai Churchgate to Dahanu Road, rather than making passengers change at Virar as at present. The railway replied that they did not have enough trains for through services and the tracks north of Virar were already too busy. In March 2012, Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi announced additional services on the Virar-Dahanu Road railway.
