Mumbai:

The Gokhale Road Bridge over the tracks at Andheri station will be closed for six hours in the intervening night of January 5 and January 6 for repairing and testing of girders, a Western Railway official said on Friday.

The bridge, which provides east-west connectivity in the busy suburb, will remain shut between 11:30pm and 5:30am, he said.

The bridge was audited by an IIT Bombay team after a part of its walkway collapsed on to the tracks below on July 3, 2018, killing two people.

"Road users are requested to use either Jogeshwari Road Over Bridge (ROB) or Milan ROB instead of Gokhale Bridge (during the shutdown period)," a Western Railway spokesperson said.
