Mumbai has one of the most crowded and overloaded suburban systems in the world. The trains are over-crowded much beyond their rated carrying capacity with headway of around four minutes and are intensively utilized. Lateral expansion by way of laying additional tracks by the side of existing tracks in not feasible due to non-availability of required land strip for most length of the Corridor. Therefore the idea exploiting the airspace above the existing railway came into existence and hence the concept of 'Elevated Rail Corridor' was envisioned. This paper first studies the aspects of the difficulties faced by the commuters and then proposes the elevated rail corridor.
