This shaft will also be used for the exit of the tunnel boring machines (recovery shaft).

Facilities and design

The station will have 6 platforms and the length of each platform is approx. 415 m (enough to accommodate a 16-car high-speed train). Bandra Kurla Complex HSR station is the only metro station in the Mumbai Ahmedabad HSR corridor. The platform is planned at a depth of approximately 24m from ground level. There will be three floors consisting of a platform, a hall and a service floor. Two entry/exit points are provided, one to facilitate access to the nearby metro station on line 2B and the other to the MTNL building. The station has been designed in such a way that sufficient space is available for the movement of passengers and amenities at the concourse and platform level. A dedicated skylight has been provided for natural lighting.
