Currey Road

View-Curry Road Bridge

Currey Road is a railway station on the Central line of the Mumbai Suburban Railways serving the areas of Lalbaug and Parel.
Currey Road is situated in central Mumbai & is surrounded by famous places like Lalbaug, Lower Parel & Parel. There is a big Bridge (constructed in 1915) which constitutes the biggest part of Currey Road & the Railway station divides the road in 2 major parts, East & West. Major population in this area is Maharashtrians - Marathi speaking.
Some of the big tenements at Currey Road East are New Hajikasam Building, Ramdoot, Triveni Sadan, kamgar Swa-Sadan, Sindhudurga & Dharamashi Mansion. On Western Side, Pipleshwar Housing society is the biggest one.
Very difficult to travel Currey Road at peak hours, which seems to be 8:30am to 11:00am, and 5:30pm - 7:30pm. Shear mass of people exiting / entering the station, coupled with the 'market' on footpaths both side forces people and cars to share the road.
Bus Routes to reach curreyroad:
Route Number (BEST) : 14, 44, 50, 52, 55, 57, 65, 68, 166
