It is suitably located with Mulund and Bhandup on either sides, and within touching distance of both Airoli (Navi Mumbai ) and Thane .It can also be approached from Bhandup Station from either side. East and West of Nahur station are connected though the Mulund-Goregaon Link Road .It is also the railway station nearest to Nirmal Lifestyles , which is a very popular mall in North Mumbai.
