Vadala Road (formerly Vuddalah Road, station code: VDLR/VD), is a railway station on the Harbour Line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway.

This station is infamous for deaths of people who are crossing the tracks. Previously, forty people were killed on the tracks here every year. After behavioral "nudges" were implemented, such as painting ties to help people judge the speed of oncoming trains, and adding pictures of men being run over, the number of deaths reduced to 10 each year.[1]
