The extra space on platforms will help the railway deal with the sea of people continuously pouring into stations because of longer trains, wider bridges and new skywalks.[1]Nallasopara station has 4 foot over bridges, In which 1 of the footover bridges is recently build with an escalator service. the new footover bridge is build to profit people with extra alternative to walk from one platform to the other.
