Mumbai: Commuters, who have been waiting for the much-delayed Andheri-Goregaon extension of Harbour line, can finally hope that it would be operational by November as a trial run was successfully held on Saturday.
The trial run conducted by officials of the Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) between Andheri and Goregaon was successful, and all the technical issues were cleared.
The Andheri-Goregaon extension on Harbour line is a part of the Mumbai Urban Transport Project (MUTP) II. Around five to seven lakh commuters will benefit from the extension daily, and it will
also help to decongest other stations such Andheri and Vile Parle that have recorded one of the highest footfall on the Western Railway (WR). The trail was conducted by running an engine between the Harbour's Andheri and Goregaon section as the final technical parameters were completed.
The engine ran without any glitch, and one of the major doubts of the alignment of the railway tracks was finally resolved. An MRVC official said, “The trial is important as the ground on which the tracks have been laid must be in exact accordance with what the state and railways have agreed upon.”
He also said, “This section has to be integrated with the already existing WR line. It is a historic accomplishment as it was completed in a space-starved city like Mumbai.”
The trail was conducted in the presence of officials from three railway bodies — CR, WR and MVRC. The success of the project was met with unbridled jubilation. An impromptu bhoomipoojan was also held.
The MRVC's chief managing director (CMD), Prabhat Sahai said, "We conducted a trial of the line on Saturday evening, and after it's success, we are confident that the services on this section will be operationally by November end." "The line will be now inspected by the commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS), who will examine whether it is adhering to all the parameters set by the Indian Railways. Mr Sahai also added, "We have given ourselves enough cushion time by conducting the trail now, so after the CRS' inspection the line will be operational in November."
The MRVC is the executing body of all MUTP projects approved by the Indian Railways.

रेलवे ने अनरिजर्व्ड टिकटिंग ऐप (यूटीएस) के जरिए टिकटों की बिक्री को बढ़ावा देने के लिए अब जिओ-टैगिंग हटाने का फैसला किया है। जिओ-टैगिंग के कारण अभी यात्रियों को स्टेशन के 30 मीटर दायरे के बाहर जाकर मोबाइल से टिकट बुक करनी होती थी। अप्रैल 2015 रेलवे ने यूटीएस मोबाइल ऐप लॉन्च की थी। तीन साल बाद भी यात्रियों ने इस ऐप में अधिक रुचि नहीं दिखाई। इस ऐप के जरिए साधारण टिकट बुकिंग और सीजन टिकट भी बुक किया जा सकता है। जानकारों के अनुसार जिओ-टैगिंग के कारण यह ऐप इतनी लोकप्रिय नहीं हुई।
में ही मिल जाएगा टिकट!
सेंट्रल रेलवे के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी के अनुसार, 'जिओ-टैगिंग हटाने के लिए मुंबई के बाहर किसी अन्य स्टेशन पर परीक्षण किया जा रहा है। इसके अंतर्गत यात्री स्टेशन परिसर के अंतर्गत ही मोबाइल से टिकट बुक कर सकेंगे।' इस तरह से टिकट बुक कराने के लिए यूटीएस मोबाइल टिकट ऐप डाउनलोड करना पड़ता है। मोबाइल नंबर रजिस्टर कराने के बाद आर-वॉलेट में कम से कम 100 रुपये और अधिकतम 5000 रुपये जमा रखना पड़ता है। ऐप को प्लेस्टोर से डाउनलोड किया जा सकता है।
अधिकारियों का तर्क है कि यदि किसी व्यक्ति को बेटिकट यात्रा करनी होगी, तो वो किसी भी नियम या बंधन को ताक पर रखकर बेटिकट यात्रा कर लेगा। टिकट इतने सस्ते हैं और यदि प्लैटफॉर्म पर खड़े-खड़े टिकट खरीदी जा सकती हो, तो बहुत कम ही लोग ऐसे होंगे जो टिकट नहीं खरीदेंगे। मुंबई में अधिकांश लोग लंबी कतारों की वजह से बेटिकट यात्रा करते हैं।

For the second consecutive year, none of Mumbai’s eight busiest stations made it to the list of India’s 10 cleanest stations. Bandra station, however, managed to grab the 15th spot in the Indian Railways’ cleanliness survey.
Pune station fared better and ranked nine among the A1 category of the list released by railway minister Suresh Prabhu in New Delhi on Wednesday.
Last year, Pune ranked 75 while Bandra stood at 60.
to the report, Lonavala also moved up the rankings from 312 position in 2016 to 29 this year.
Eight ‘A1 and A’ stations on the Mumbai suburban network were surveyed.
The A1 category stations were CST, Dadar, Lokmanya Tilak Terminus, Thane, Mumbai Central, Bandra station and Kalyan.
Panvel was the only ‘A category’ station.
Mumbai Central had emerged as the cleanest among the eight stations in 2016 but this it slipped to 27 while Surat station on the Western Railway which had topped the A1 category last year, fell to 26 this time.
Among the 407 stations surveyed across the country, Vishakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh ranked first among the A1 category stations, while Beas in Punjab topped the A category stations.
The environment and housekeeping management directorate of the Railway board has commissioned the survey under the Swatch Rail Swatch Bharat mission last year.
According to railway sources, Indian railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) outsourced the
survey to a third party agency — Quality Council of India (QCI).
“The stations were ranked according to their cleanliness in parking, main entry area, main platform and waiting rooms. The agency visited the stations to gauge their cleanliness and took into account passenger feedback,” the railway’s release stated.
It added, “A 24x7 control room was set up and images were geo-tagged to monitor progress.”
Railway sources said that among the 17 zonal railways, CR and WR ranked 3rd and 6th respectively on cleanliness.

* Amongst the major metro-cities of world as well as of India, Mumbai has the highest population density.
* No wonder, in spite of the underground sewrage network, it remains amongst the filthiest.
* Very low elevation, heavy rains, dangerous flooding, especially during the high tide only make the matter worse.
* It is very difficult to keep the Mumbai Rly
stations clean due to above facts and a very large footfall mainly due to large number of suburban paxs.
* Mumbai is continuously losing its status at national as well as international level due to lack of investment in its infrastructure and gradually getting more and more crowded much beyond the level of sustainability. Lack of fast and convenient mode of transport is one of the main reason, the populace is not getting disbursed enough.
* Two pronged approach required,
1- develop the adjoining areas and give faster and extended suburban rail/ metro commuting facility
2- develop the nearby cities and give fast train commuting facility (160-200 kmph) very much like Rapid Rail Transport being planned to connect nearby cities like Alwar, Meerut, Panipat, etc with Delhi.
It is necessary to develop adjoining area like Vasai, Virar and beyond, Beyond Kalyan, Navi Mumbai etc to reduce the crowding in Mumbai.
Fast tracking of following projects essential to develop these suburbs which can act as counter magnets and decongest the Mumbai
Following are som of the important additions rquired in this respect:
1- Virar-Dahanu-Quadrupling,
2- Six tracking of BCT-VR,
3- Six tracking of CSTM-Kalyan,
4- Quadrupling CSTM-Panvel harbour route
5- Tripling/Quadrupling of Kalyan-Kasara, Kalyan-Khopoli
6- New corridors like Virai-VasaiRd-Panvel-Alibaug (a planned project) etc
Rapid rail transport @ 180-200 kmph shall make the cities in 200-250km range shall act as counter magnet to Mumbai Metro so that Population growth takes place in these cities and new nodes may be developed enroute to absorb the future population growth in the Mumbai Region. A combination of level tracks, elevated tracks and tunnels may be required to keep the distances and hence commuting times to lower side, to make the scheme successful.
Following could be some of the options
1- Mumbai-Pune (150km) (Future extension to Solapur 400-Secunderabad750)
2- Mumbai-Nashik(175km) (Future extension to Malegaon250-Dhule-Indore550-BPL725)
3- Mumbai-Aurangabad (250km) (Future extension to NGP750)
4- Mumbai-Ahmednagar(200km)
5- Mumbai-Vapi(150km) (Future extension to ST250-BRC400-ADI500)
Above BG RRT rail of Mumbai, and similar ones from other metro like Delhi, Kolkata, Banglore, Chennai etc can later be extended step by step, in long run, to become a unified nationwide network of SHS trains.
