LTT In Kurla To Soon Get A Restaurant-On-Wheels
While the Restaurant-On-Wheels situated at CSMT is set to close because of the elaborate redevelopment plan that the station is set to undergo. However, the Lokmanya Tilak Terminus or the LTT in Kurla is all set to get a Restaurant-On-Wheels.
According to an article recently published by the Mid-Day Mumbai, an air-conditioned coach of an Utkrisht class of rail has been isolated for the purpose. This particular coach has been positioned on the tracks that were newly laid opposing the LTT station.
The article also mentioned that the rates of the restaurant will be determined by the licensee. The licensee is also responsible for maintaining the surrounding and the approaching corridor at their own cost. They may decide the rates by taking into account the market-approved rates set by the railway.
