मुंबई : वाढत्या धूरक्यामुळे मध्य रेल्वेने लोकलच्या वेळापत्रकात बदल करण्याचा निर्णय घेतला आहे. १८ डिसेंबरपासून कसारा आणि कर्जत स्थानकातून सुटणा-या लोकल फे-यांचे वेळा बदलण्यात येणार आहे. कल्याण ते छत्रपती शिवाजी महाराज टर्मिनसदरम्यान लोकल वेळापत्रकाप्रमाणे धावणार आहेत. यात कोणताही बदल करण्यात येणार नाही.
हा बदल तात्पुरता स्वरूपात असल्याचे रेल्वे प्रशासनाने सांगितले. धूरक्यामुळे कमी दृश्यमानता असल्याने लोकल फेºयांच्या वेगावर परिणाम होत असे.

अंबरनाथ : रेल्वे स्थानकातील पूर्व भागात दुचाकींच्या पार्किंगचा प्रश्न गंभीर झाला आहे. रेल्वेस्थानकात येणाऱ्या मार्गावरच अनेक दुचाकी उभ्या केल्या जातात. तिकीट घरापर्यंत या गाड्या उभ्या राहत असल्याने रेल्वे स्थानकाच्या सुरक्षेचा प्रश्न निर्माण झाला आहे. या पार्किंगचा आता रेल्वे प्रवाशांना त्रास होत आहे.
अंबरनाथ स्थानक परिसरात ज्याप्रमाणे बेकायदा पार्किंग मोठ्या प्रमाणात होत आहे त्याचप्रमाणे आता रेल्वे स्थानकातील तिकीट खिडकीसमोरील बेकायदा पार्किंगचा प्रश्न गंभीर झाला आहे. रेल्वेस्थानकात थेट गाड्या येऊ नये याच्या सुुरक्षेसाठी लोखंडी खांब बसविण्यात आले

थेट तिकीट खिडकीच्या आवारातच उभ्या करीत आहेत. रेल्वेच्या आवारातील मोकळ्या जागेवर प्रवाशांना वावरण्यासाठी जागा ठेवली आहे. मात्र त्याच जागेवर आता मोठ्या प्रमाणात गाड्या उभ्या राहत असल्याने त्याचा त्रास रेल्वे प्रवाशांना होत आहे.
सकाळी आणि सायंकाळी घाईघाईने निघणाऱ्या प्रवाशांना या गाड्यांची मोठी अडचण होते आहे. गाड्या उभ्या करण्यासाठी काही खाजगी कंत्राटदार प्रवाशांकडून चुकीच्या पध्दतीने पैसे घेत असल्याचे समोर येत आहे.

The High Court asked Railways to run trains to Thane, Dombivali and Ambernath to reduce crowding at CST.
Mumbai: The Bombay high court on Wednesday suggested that Railways examine the possibility of finding a path to start local trains services from Churchgate to central suburbs like Thane, Dombivali and Ambernath to reduce crowding at Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST). However, records show that Railways had already discussed this matter and claimed it isn’t feasible.
The division bench of Justice V.M. Kanade and Justice Nutan Dessai made the suggestion while hearing public interest litigations (PILs)

about prevention of accidents and emergency medical treatment on the Mumbai suburban network. During the hearing, the issue of overcrowding in trains was also discussed and since overcrowding in locals had resulted in several fatal accidents, the court expressed a desire for Railways to adopt methods that could reduce crowding in local trains.
The bench was of the view that if Railways could run trains between CST and Andheri, why couldn’t it run services between Churchgate and Thane. The bench said that currently trains from Churchgate ply only on the western suburbs route and the line does not have any connection with Central Railway (CR) apart from the Dadar railway station.
According to the judges, a number of commuters who have offices in Churchgate and Nariman Point can go to Churchgate station and take trains to the central suburbs instead of going all the way to CST. This would reduce the crowd at CST also. “Let this suggestion be looked into by experts from the field. Maybe a separate corridor can be set up,” said Justice Kanade.
In the meantime, Suresh Kumar, the counsel for Railways, informed the court that crowding-related casualties had reduced considerably on the harbour line — which starts from CST — after the introduction of 12-car rakes, but such incidents are still witnessed on the western and central line. He also told the court that an increase in deaths due to rooftop travelling had been noticed.
To address various railway-related issues, the court called the Mumbai police commissioner, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation commissioner and high-ranking officers of Maharashtra Housing and Development Authority, City and Industrial Development Corporation and Railways to discuss and resolve the issue. The court will hear the matter on December 8.
