History

In 1918, the Bombay city limits were expanded out to Kurla. A new railway line connecting Kurla to Chembur was constructed and then extended to Mankhurd. A spate of building activity took place in the 1920s.

The Bandra-Kurla Commercial Complex added to the commercial value of Kurla.

It is also the only common railway station to Central Railway’s main line and harbour line. This is of course in addition to Victoria Terminus (VT) — now named Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), Masjid and Sandhurst Road.
