BHUBANESWAR: The East Coast Railway (ECoR) has set a target to close all unmanned level crossings (ULCs) in Khurda Road division by end of March this year. Now the division has only 10 such ULCs so far.
Khurda Road division of the ECoR has major stations and railway sections including Bhubaneswar, Puri, Cuttack, Khurda Road, Bhadrak and Berhampur. Presently, there are no ULCs near Bhubaneswar or Cuttack.
ECoR sources said there were 19 ULCs by April 1 last year in the division. Later it closed nine of these level crossings by December last

year. "The Railway Board has given target to close the ULCs by 2020. We will finish the work before the target. Safety at level crossings will definitely get the highest priority," said Brijmohan Agarwal, divisional railway manager (DRM), Khurda Road.
Out of the 10 ULCs, six of them will be closed by constructing limited height subways (LHBs) or railway underpasses. These places situated between Talcher and Angul, Kuhudi-Gangadharpur, Motori-Delang, Badabandha-Paradip, Naraj-Barang and Ganjam-Chatrapur.
The division has decided to close two ULCs in two lines, Delang-Bira Purusottampur and Khurda Road-Motori, by diverting the road leading to ULCs to nearby manned level crossings. The last two crossings between Tomka and Keonjhar section will be converted as manned level crossings, said an ECoR official.
According to the statistics, the division has closed 14 ULCs in 2013-14, 21 in 2014-15, 19 in 2015-16 and six in 2016-17. "We are moving ahead in mission mode to ensure that there are no ULCs in Khurda Road division after March," said the DRM.
Sources said as many as 43 people have been killed during last six years under ECoR due to accident happened at the ULCs. After several accidents occurred at the ULCs, Railways had planned to close all these level crossings by 2020.
Recently, the ECoR has deployed Gate Mitras or gate counselors at 144 vulnerable locations in its zone to prevent accidents and alert commuters about approaching trains at sensitive ULCs. These places include 10 in Khurda Road railway division, 68 in Sambalpur division and 66 in Waltair division. They will be available at the gate round-the-clock wearing approved dress code (Fluorescent Safety Jackets).

Delang (DEG): Even as the Government Railway Police (GRP) on Sunday arrested at least 51 persons for torching a coach of Puri-Barbil/Paradip Express, Friday’s mob fury at Delang Railway Station has cost the Railways a staggering Rs 2.5 crore or even more.
All the arrested persons belonged to Sanagualipur village of Delang. SP of Railways Sanjay Kaushal said they will be produced before the court after verification of their involvement in the incident. Charges under Indian Penal Code (IPC) for destruction of public property, rioting and arson will be pressed against them. Provisions under the Railway Act will also be slapped, he added.

On Friday, the mob had gone berserk after the death of a youth who had fallen off a train the previous evening. The locals were demanding stoppage of the Puri-Barbil/Keonjhar Express at Delang.
Sources said the rioting and arson have put a huge cost on the ECoR property which is still being assessed. While a coach costs more than Rs 1.25 crore, the mob also damaged the station master’s cabin, reservation room, while the signalling and communication equipment were laid to waste. The route line interlocking system suffered serious damage. The incident may have inflicted a direct loss of over Rs 2.5 crore on the Railways.
“The Railways must make public the loss suffered by such incidents since these are public property and affects large sections of the society. Eventually, people pay for it through taxes,” said a senior government officer.
Direct losses apart, the consequential losses are even more. Sources pointed out that since a number of trains were controlled, short-terminated and cancelled because of the incident, there was a serious disruption of train traffic. As a result, affected passengers may also file claims.
“There is a need to send out a strong message that railway property cannot be destroyed and Odisha Police must take stern action against those who vandalised the property to ensure that,” said an officer.
