It looks like it may collapse any time.
Ppl have reported this 2-3 days ago, already acknowledged by Mum Police as well as Railways.— 🇮🇳 🄰🄿🄾🄾🅁🅅 🇮🇳 (@apoorvc2005) March 30, 2019
Following this, BMC authorities replied that the pictures show a construction joint and the foot over-bridge was safe to use, reported TOI.
Just last month, a foot over-bridge outside CSMT collapsed which killed 6 people and left several injured.
