Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation Ltd.
Transforming Maharashtra's Transport Landscape
Railway Over Bridges Project

Background

In the recent years, the traffic volume on the roads have increased considerably. To cater this, large scale road improvements like widening and strengthening of pavements had been undertaken by Govt. to increase the speed and safety of the traffic. However the railway level crossings proved to be bottlenecks for smooth flow of traffic. Therefore there were demands to construct Railway Over Bridges at those locations. Due to financial constraints, it was not possible for the Govt. to construct these bridges, through budgeted grants.

Therefore GOM decided to undertake the construction of the Railway Over Bridges on Build, Operate and Transfer basis. Therefore, MSRDC was appointed as nodal agency of GOM, for construction of ROBs through IRCON International Limited. IRCON was assigned the task of planning, designing and execution of these ROB in consultation with MSRDC.

Memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed between MSRDC and IRCON in March 1997, for construction 29 ROBs. Out of these twenty nine, twenty ROBs had been constructed. Nine ROBs have been deferred for one or another reasons.
