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.
According

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.
* ----STRENGTHENING SUBURBAN RAIL/ METRO TRANSPORT----
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
*------- DEVELOPING RAPID RAIL TRANSPORT TO NEARBY CITIES ----
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.

Your daily train travel could get a lot more comfortable.
The railways are planning to start 76 new services from stations such Dadar, Bandra and Kurla, a move that could make trains less crowded.
The new suburban services will begin after the monsoon. The Central Railway is likely to start 40 new services, while the Western Railway will have 36 new ones. The Mumbai divisions of both CR and WR presented their plan to Mohammad Jamshed from the railway board — the Indian Railways’ policy-making body.
The

plan is to start these services from Dadar or stations after it — instead of Churchgate or CST — to cater to newer business hubs. “Population is going up and new work spots and offices are coming in the northern parts of the city. Both zones are focussing on that and working out plans to improve services in those areas,” Jamshed said.
The CR is planning to introduce 12 services on the main line, 14 each on the Harbour and trans-harbour corridors, railway sources said. The services would be introduced in the new suburban timetable that will be introduced from October.
Sources said of the 36 new WR services, some would be on the 15-coach trains that can carry 25% more passengers than the 12-coach trains.
On Monday, railway minister Suresh Prabhu tweeted about the new services.
Currently, both CR and WR operate more than 2,900 suburban services that more than 75 lakh commuters use every day. But commuters still struggle to find space on these trains and face frequent disruption of services.
According to official sources, Jamshed also directed both the CR and WR to improve train frequency and punctuality.
Railway officials said Jamshed directed Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) to expedite the Mumbai Urban Transport Project and advance its deadlines, especially for Thane-Diva 5th and 6th line that will segregate suburban and outstation train traffic between Kurla-Kalyan.
Clearing that first air conditioned local that is undergoing trials at present would first ply on Western railway, railway also said that they would start more and more AC services. Jamshed also hinted that new AC trains would be procured under third phase of MUTP.

भारतीय रेलवे मुंबई के रेल यात्रियों के लिए एक बड़े तोहफे की तैयारी कर रहा है. अब मुंबई के 5 स्टेशन पर नई मेडिकल सुविधाओं की व्यवस्था की जाएगी, यहां पर मात्र 1 रुपये में डॉक्टर को दिखा सकेंगे. इसके तहत रेलवे मुफ्त में जमीन भी मुहैया कराएगा, उम्मीद है कि यह व्यवस्था अगले दो माह में शुरू हो जाएगी.
इन सुविधाओं के तहत रेलवे दुर्घटनाओं के शिकार लोगों को आपातकालीन सहायता प्रदान करने के अलावा अन्य मेडिकल सुविधाएं भी मिलेगी. क्लीनिक में कई एमबीबीएस डॉक्टर मौजूद रहेंगे. इसके अलावा समय-समय पर त्वचा रोग, मधुमेह और स्त्री रोग के स्पेशलिस्ट डॉक्टर भी इन क्लीनिक में रहेंगे.

रेलवे के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी के अनुसार, कुर्ला, घाटकोपर, मुलुंड, वडाला और दादर में एक-रुपए में इलाज करने वाले क्लीनिक के साथ आपातकालीन चिकित्सा कक्ष (ईएमआर) बनेंगे. वहीं 15 अन्य स्टेशनों पर ऐसे ही क्लीनिक कुछ महीनों में स्थापित करेंगे. यह इस बात पर निर्भर करेगा कि पहला क्लीनिक कब बनकर तैयार होता है.
आपको बता दें कि उच्च न्यायालय के दिशा-निर्देशों के आधार पर सेंट्रल रेलवे और वेस्टर्न रेलवे विभिन्न स्टेशनों पर ईएमआर स्थापित कर रहा है. ऐसा करने के लिए सेंट्रल रेलवे ने पब्लिक-प्राइवेट पार्टनरशिप (पीपीपी) मॉडल को अपनाया है.
इस प्रकार सेंट्रल रेलवे सिर्फ पानी, बिजली और जगह मुहैया कराएगा व इसके अलावा कोई और भुगतान नहीं करेगा, अन्य खर्च जैसे मैन-पावर, इक्विपमेंट्स इस सुविधा को स्थापित करने वाली एजेंसी वहन करेगी.

संगमेश्वर (जि. रत्नागिरी), दि. १९ : कोकण रेल्वे मार्गावर धावणाऱ्या दादर - रत्नागिरी पॅसेंजरमधील शौचालयाच्या अनेक खिडक्या तुटलेल्या असून, बेसीनमध्येही घाणीचे साम्राज्य आहे. त्यामुळे प्रवाशांमधून संताप व्यक्त होत आहे.
दादर - रत्नागिरी पॅसेंजर ही नियमित धावणारी गाडी कोकणी प्रवाशांसाठी वरदान ठरलेली आहे. नेहमीच प्रवाशांनी लगडलेली रेल्वे सर्वसामान्य प्रवाशांसाठी फायदेशीर आहे. सध्या शाळा, महाविद्यालयांना सुटी असल्याने गर्दी मोठ्या प्रमाणात वाढली आहे. त्यामुळे रत्नागिरीहून रात्रीच्या वेळेस मुंबईच्या दिशेने जाणारी आणखी एक पॅसेंजर गाडी सुरू करावी, अशी मागणी जोर धरत आहे. सर्वसामान्य प्रवाशांना परवडेल अशी असा तिकीट दर असल्यामुळे वर्षभर ही गाडी हाऊस फुल्ल चालते. साहजिकच याचा फायदा कोकण रेल्वेला होतो.

असताना सध्या या पॅसेंजरमधील शौचालयाच्या काही खिडक्या तुटल्या असून, अनेक खिडक्या गायब आहेत. काही खिडक्या शौचालयाच्या भांड्यावर आडव्या टाकण्यात आल्याने प्रवाशांची गैरसोय होत आहे. तसेच शौचालयातील काही बेसीन व दरवाजाजवळील बेसीन सध्यस्थितीला अस्वच्छ असलेली पाहावयास मिळत आहेत. ही बेसीन अस्वच्छतेने अक्षरश: माखलेली असल्याने बेसीनमध्ये प्रवाशांना तोंड धुण्याचीही इच्छा होत नाही.
बेसीन अस्वच्छ असल्याने या बेसीनजवळ गेल्यास प्रवाशांना दुर्गंधीचा सामना करावा लागतो. त्याचबरोबर गाडीमधील दोन्ही सीटच्या मधील भागात व सीटवर बसल्यानंतर पाय ठेवण्याच्या भागामध्येही मोठ्या प्रमाणात कचरा व टरफले साठलेली असतात. याचाही त्रास प्रवाशांना होत आहे.
या सर्व समस्यांमुळे प्रवाशांमध्ये सध्या कमालीची नाराजी असून, प्रवाशांना याचा नाहक त्रास सहन करावा लागत आहे. हे कमी म्हणून की काय या गाडीला क्राँसिंगच्या नावाखाली सतत रखडवत ठेवले जाते, अशी प्रवाशांची तक्रार आहे. ही गाडी कधीही वेळेत पोहोचत नाही. त्यामुळे या सगळ्या समस्यांनी प्रवासी मात्र हैराण झाला आहे. या समस्यांकडे कोकण रेल्वे प्रशासनाने वेळीच लक्ष देऊन या समस्या कायमच्या दूर कराव्यात, अशी मागणी प्रवाशांमधून करण्यात येत आहे.

MUMABI: Quick thinking and timely action by a motorman helped save the life of a 28-year-old woman who was trying to cross the railway tracks at Dadar on Monday. Pune resident Sunanda Chuahan hopped across the tracks and was trying to clamber onto platform 3, blissfully unaware that the local train headed towards CST was trundling on the same track towards her. Motorman Anil Yadav said he spotted the woman struggling to hop onto the platform around 2 pm. "I honked, hoping she would move away from the track, but she just did not," said Yadav. "I applied emergency brakes in the nick of time."Trains move at a speed of 30-40 km per hour while pulling into a station. Yadav said that the woman had enough time and warning to dart out in the other direction. Central Railway officials said that the woman could have failed to notice the approaching train...

or hear the horn. "The train brushed past the woman, causing minor injuries around the head and ears," said a railway official. Passengers helped her get onto the platform where she was given first aid. Chief public relations officer of Central Railway, Narendra Patil, said that Yadav will be rewarded.

The spot at Dadar staton where the expansion will be carried out
Strip of land which divides the Central Railway and Western Railway parts of Dadar station will be used to lay the two new platforms.Dadar (central), one of Mumbai's busiest local stations, will soon have two more platforms, bringing huge relief to nearly 2.7 lakh commuters who board and disembark trains here every day.

will be dedicated to fast trains originating here.
The land is currently dotted with 30 low-rise structures housing Central Railway and Western Railway offices. Seventeen of these structures belong to the Central Railway, while the rest are with the Western Railway. The offices in the 17 Central Railway buildings will be moved to a new multi-storeyed structure and the Western Railway has been asked to make its own arrangements.
Dadar (central) handles 750 local trains a day, including around 30 trains that originate here and an equal number that terminate their journeys. In addition, 90 long-distance trains stop here, including seven trains that start their journeys here and an equal number that terminate here.
The tender for the multi-storied building that will house all Central Railway offices removed from the narrow strip of land was awarded in May 2016. While the relocation will cost Central Railway Rs 28 crore, the construction of new platforms will set it back by Rs 10 crore.
While the station currently has six local platforms and two for long-distance trains, the new platforms will take the total number to 10. During the construction of the two new platforms, some of the existing lines will be loved, leading to the widening of platform no. 1, which is currently the narrowest here.
Mumbai Mirror in its February 4 edition had reported how a narrow strip of platform no. 1 next to where the foot overbridge lands had become a death trap. Three commuters lost their lives in the past one year while trying to board moving trains from this part of the platform.
Divisional Railway Manager, Central Railway, Ravinder Goyal said construction work for the two new platforms has already been approved.
The widened platform no. 1, which may be assigned a new number after the changes, will also handle fast trains in its new avatar. The current platform no. 1handles close to 240 slow local services.
The new platform no. 1 will have direct access from the west side. A foot overbridge, which under-construction, will connect all Dadar (central) platforms to Tilak Bridge.

You read it right. As of now, Mumbai-Pune journey time is about three hours by train but Hyperloop Transportation Technologies has put forth a new proposal before transport ministry. According to this new proposal, travel time between Mumbai and Pune may be reduced to 25 minutes!
Hyperloop
Hyperloop runs faster than an aircraft at a speed of 1,120 kmph.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, a Los Angeles-based company, has designed a new way to move people.
Hyperloop is a concept where a pod-like vehicle travels through a near-vacuum that's contained within a tube.
The firm has asked the transport ministry for land to run a pilot project of its high-speed transportation service.
Elon Musk-backed Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) co-founder Bibop G Gresta on Tuesday said the company is ready to build hyperloop between Mumbai and Pune, but the decision is left with Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari to go ahead with the project.
"Gadkari has a proposal to build the hyperloop on his table and he has to take a decision. If he wants to go ahead with it, we are ready, and it will be a feasibility study to begin with to lay line between Bombay (Mumbai) and Pune," he told media in Bengaluru on the sidelines of the Carnegie Global Technology Summit 2016.
Asked about the regulatory challenges to build hyperloop in India, Gresta said Gadkari, during the meeting, had expressed the Indian Government's willingness to help the company in this regard.
"I had asked Gadkari to help us with regulatory norms. He (Gadkari) said we are willing to do that," he added.
Among the prominent cities and countries where the hyperloop will be built are California, Utah, Illinois, Florida, Indianapolis, Canada, Mexico, Chile, Spain, France, Slovakia, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Botswana, South Africa, Russia, China, Malaysia, India, Indonesia and Australia.
Gresta said the company has received an investment of over $100 to build hyperloop in these countries and cities around the globe.
"We have received over 100 million dollars to build hyperloop in as many as 20 countries," he said. Replying to a query, Gresta said the first hyperloop is expected to be launched in Abu Dhabi.
