History
Vikhroli lies in the North East of Mumbai and provides easy access to all suburbs through the roads that run through it. The Eastern Express Highway connects it to Thane, Dadar, Chembur and Vashi. It is well connected by L.B.S. Marg, formerly called Agra Road, on its western part, to Bandra, Jogeshwari and other western suburbs. Around 80 percent of the population residing in Vikhroli are families of Godrej Employees making it a very close knit town, with every other person knowing each other. Kannamwar Nagar on the eastern side of the railway station is known for buildings built by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA). Kannamwar Nagar holds the record of being the largest residential colony in Asia. For years, the Vikhroli telephone exchange covered the vast area network from Ghatkopar to Thane. A proposal for a bridge has been made, which is to be built over the Thane creek from Kannamwar Nagar off the eastern express highway to Kopar Khairane in Navi Mumbai, thereby providing a much needed third bridge linking Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. The popular bus routes operating from this suburb are 394 and 397 (to kannamwar nagar), 353 (to wadala), 354 (to dadar), 388 (to seepz depot) and 185 (to jogeshwari). From vikhroli west, Route No 7 (to Backbay) 387 Parksite to Ghatkopar Railway Station is the most patronised.
