I want to make a foreach loop to display the has_arrived status in php.
when i tried with var_dump(has_arrived) it returned the output as false.but i want the output as,
when the has_arrived  status is true it should display the arrived text message else it will display the not arrived message in the foreach loop .



i have decoded and stored the decoded values in the $json variable
Kindly help me to suggest the idea and help me to solve the issue
my php code:
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <META charset="utf-8">
    <TITLE>Train Status Time Table</TITLE>
  $json = '';
  if(isset($_GET['trainnumber']) && (isset($_GET['doj']))) { 
    $url = 'http://api.railwayapi.com/live/train/'.$_GET['trainnumber'].'/doj/'.$_GET['doj'].'/apikey/jvtnb8382/';
    $json = json_decode(file_get_contents($url), true);
    foreach($json['route'] as $stop) {
      echo '      <TR><TD>'.$stop['station'].'<TD>'.$stop['scharr'].'<TD>'.$stop['actarr'].'<TD>'.$stop['has_arrived'].'<TD>'.$stop['has_departed'].'<TD>'.$stop['latemin']."\n";
  } else {
    echo "Something went wrong, please notify to admin [support@livetrainrunningstatus.co.in]";
