How would you like to Divert traffic of MGS ALD CNB NDLS route ? Kindly specify. Keeping in mind, this route is 130, with many Rajdhanis, Durontos, Garibraths, SFs with 130 while the other route has 100 110 MPS available. Kindly clarify.
Read a news about two NR controllers suffering heart attack while they were on duty in span of 3 days...Both accused the heavy traffic load and congestion being the main reason espcly in NR and NCR...
DFC is the only solution to this I think..Freight load in North India is way too much high..also railway should using the routes where less no. Of paasngers are there for freight trains..Like ALD-CNB via Unchahar Unnao should be used..Or GKP bound freight load via Sitapur side to NDLS..
Scndly they should connect the outer stations via a bypass line stopping freight to entr the main station premises..Like LKO NR has Almanagar connected to Uthratia via a bypass line..similarly more should be done like this..
NEW DELHI: Ravindra Gaikwad, the Shiv Sena MP who decided that not being able to fly business class merited a lengthy assault on an airline employee, says he's the wronged party. The former school teacher wants Air India to be investigated for ill-treating him. This after he told reporters that he used his sandal to hit a 60-year-old Air India manager 25 times. The Shiv Sena this evening justified not taking any action against him, despite a large shower of his abuse being filmed. Air India has filed two police cases against him and all airlines have banned him.
Here are the 10 latest developments in this story:
Beware Railways now might be your staff to be beaten with Chappals sorry Sandals if your service is not upto the mark.
All major Airline operators have Black listed this goon and now he can't travel in Plane so took the train. Railway should also ban this arrogant idiot from travelling in trains too.
jab inko janta chappal maregi tab hekdi utteregi
Can Railway actually do that. Most possibly he must have taken a 1A seat in 12952 or 12954. Besides so weird how Delhi Police pounces on AAP MLA in such a hurry but failed to arrest this guy despite 2 FIR against him by Air India. Normal person hota to ab tak COurt Judicial custody mein hota.
Railway staff , airline staff jaise soft nature ke nahi hote. Dono taraf se chappal padhne ki umeed hai.
MP hai bhai or wo bhi ruling party ke coalition partner ka, agar media ka pressure na hota to FIR bhi file nahi hui rehti. Is desk ka Law aam or khaas k liye alag hai sanjeev ji. BTW MP ko arrest karne k liye lok sabha speaker ki approval ki jarurat padti hai sayad.
Delhi govt ke MLA to raato raat uuth jaate hai. MPS ko itni choot mil rakhi hai
Are sab politics hai Sir, waha opposition party thi yahan coalition partner hai.
As expected of a political party of Shiv Sena Standards this was bound to happen. We may also expect hooliganism at Airport of Pune and Mumbai once their hero who taught AI official manners to deal with MP returns to his home turf by trainclick here
New platform arrangements for Mumbai Central, Bandra Terminus, LTT in revamp.
Two-tier platforms will come up at three city terminuses — Mumbai Central, Bandra, and Kurla LTT — serving as separate arrival and departure zones just like at the airports.
The terminuses are among 400 stations for long-haul trains across the country that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said would be redeveloped when he presented the Union budget on February 1. The tenders for the stations are expected to be issued soon and the railway ministry wants the construction to be completed in three
Similarly needed in SRC, HWH, KOAA also.
even its planned at BZA also. Its much required at BZA , SC too
Most welcome step, using vertical space for platforms ( as well as tracks by way of elevated railway) at Mumbai should have been done atleast 15-20 years back.
This will bring a new lease of life to IR in Mumbai.
Hope CST, Dadar, Kalyan too shall be facilitated with 2 tier platforms.
In Mumbai the 2 tier platform stations shall be more challenging as
All major Jn should be revamped with Tier 2 pfs .
Very Challenging Job it will be.. !! Wil take atleast 5 Years.. How can they Design seperate level for train Boarding and Alighting. ? When train is occupied Ground Level , People can only board through That level only.
with increasing traffic, this is reqd & preparation should start from now only.
It can be done, but all needs a better designers. If boarding at Ground and Alighting other level means, its possible for Originating trains only. 3-4 PF depends on can be given for Boarding and alighting.
Is it for Suburb service or Distance - long distance ones ?
no idea...but for passing trains means board and Alighting in different level is impossible.
Yeah , Only Originating Terminating train will be benefitted. For other it'll be next to impossible.. Most importan how they will implement it on present PF's.. Load of Train on that level.
