Vikhroli is a suburb of Mumbai (Bombay). The suburb has a railway station by the same name on the Central Railway line. The station was built just before India's independence in 1947 to cater to the needs of the sprawling Godrej Complex in the vicinity. The railway line runs through the suburb dividing it into two major parts (named the 'West' and the 'East'), like many other areas in Mumbai.

     Vikhroli being the central part of Mumbai provides easy access to all cities through roadways.

It has got Agra Road ie Eastern Express Highway also known as Ashoka highway in its eastern part which connects it to Thane(20 mins),Dadar(20mins),Chembur(15mins),Vashi(15 mins). It is well connected by LBS marg on its western part which probably connects it to Bandra,Jogeshwari and other western suburbs.

      Second thing for which Vikhroli is popular about is its contribution to development of IT sector in Mumbai .

Vikhroli has got many IT offices and call centers bringing a large working crowd travelling to Vikhroli every day. Some of the companies located in Vikhroli are Accenture,WNS,Capgemini,Godrej infotech,L&T infotech,Udhe,TCS,CIPAL a nd the list goes on.


Kannamwar Nagar on the eastern side of the railway station is known for buildings built by MHADA.

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 poisor depot) and 185 (to jogeshwari). From vikhroli west, Route No 7 (to Backbay) is the most patronised.
