Sandhurst Road

Sandhurst Road is a railway station on the Central line of the Mumbai Suburban Railways. It is the third station from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus.
Named after Lord Sandhurst, the Governor of Bombay between 1895 and 1900, the station was built in 1910 using funds from the Bombay City Improvement Trust which he helped raise. The Sandhurst Road railway station (upper level servicing the Harbour Line) was built in 1921. The supporting pillars of the edifice bear the inscription "GIPR(Great Indian Peninsula Railway now known as Central Railway) 1921 Lutha Iron Works, Glasgow.
