Pre-emptive move to forestall possible strike by traders
The rail overbridge at Tenkasi which will be inaugurated by theChief Minister on Friday.
In a pre-emptive move forestalling a threatened strike by traders, the State government has formally announced that the rail overbridge constructed on the Tenkasi-Madurai Highway at Tenkasi will be opened by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on November 8, through videoconferencing.
The announcement comes on the heels of a call by traders’ associations in Tenkasi to down shutters on November 6 in protest over the delay in opening the overbridge to traffic.
Work on the overbridge was completed in August.
It was constructed at a cost of Rs 25 crore, with the Central and State governments sharing the cost burden equally. The public had been clamouring for the construction of an overbridge as the manned-level crossing on the busy highway posed a great inconvenience, especially to commuters headed to the new bus stand and ambulances rushing patients to the government hospital.
Vehicles lined up in long queues, notably during the tourist season at Courtallum.
Though the foundation stone was laid by then Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin in October, 2009, work on the 680-meter-long concrete structure started only by February, 2010.
जागरण संवाददाता, बरेली : रेल पटरियों के इर्द-गिर्द सुरक्षा दीवार खड़ी होगी। इसके लिए जम्मूतवी से हावड़ा स्टेशन तक सुरक्षा दीवार बनाने की कवायद शुरू हो गई है।
2038 किमी के रेलखंड पर इलेक्ट्रिक ट्रेनों का संचालन 20 फरवरी से शुरू हो गया है। खुले रेलखंड पर अचानक आने वाले लोग, वाहन और जानवरों के कारण यह ट्रेनें रफ्तार नहीं पकड़ पातीं। इसी को लेकर रेलवे ने इलेक्ट्रिक जम्मूतवी-हावड़ा रेलखंड के दोनों ओर सुरक्षा दीवार बनाने का निर्णय लिया है। इसके लिए जम्मूतवी स्टेशन से ईट और लोहे के ऐंगिल की दीवार बनाने का कार्य शुरू हो चुका है। सुरक्षा दीवार का निर्माण पूरा होने के बाद रेल हादसों में कमी आएगी, तो वहीं ट्रेनें भी अपनी रफ्तार से दौड़ सकेंगी।
रेलवे जमीनों से रुकेंगे कब्जे
रेलखंडों पर सुरक्षा दीवार बनने से भूमि पर कब्जे रुकेंगे। लोग खाली पड़ी भूमि पर कब्जे करने लगते है। इसके बाद रेलवे को अवैध कब्जे हटाने के लिए काफी मशक्कत करनी पड़ती है।
सुरक्षित हुआ लालकुआं रेलखंड
इज्जतनगर रेल मंडल ने बरेली-लालकुआं ब्राडगेज पर सात जनवरी को ट्रेन संचालन शुरू होने के बाद ट्रैक को सुरक्षित करने का कार्य शुरू किया था। यह रेलखंड सुरक्षा दीवार से सुरक्षित हो चुका है। सिटी स्टेशन से लालकुआं तक रेल पटरी के दोनों ओर ईट और लोहे के एंगिल की दीवार लगभग पूरी बन चुकीं है।
मानव रहित क्रॉसिंग पर लगेगी पाबंदी
रेलखंड खुले होने के कारण लोग अपनी सहूलियत के हिसाब से रेल पटरियों से रास्ता बना लेते हैं, जो कुछ समय बाद मानव रहित क्रॉसिंग का रूप ले लेते हैं। इनको बंद कराने में रेलवे को काफी मुश्किल आती हैं।

The Delhi Metro, in a span of over 10 years, has become synonymous with safe, comfortable and efficient travel in the ever growing National Capital Region (NCR). But, a recent audit has found several security vulnerabilities in the Metro stations, especially the ones running underground.
Conducted by the Delhi government's transport department, the safety audit found that the security at the stations needs to be strengthened further.
Commuters enter the Metro stations with their luggage and can easily ply to the ticket counters without their baggage getting checked. The luggage is scanned only before the commuter goes towards the automatic fare collection gates. Threats loom large over the access points to the Metro stations and the unpaid area of the stations as there are no provisions to secure these areas, the report, released on Monday, said.
The Delhi Metro ferries nearly 2.5 million passengers and makes over 2,800 trips daily. "Security is lenient, especially at the underground metro stations from the entry point to the ticketing area. During peak hours, even these stations cater to more than 4,000 people and one can easily carry a explosives inside their bag and strategically place it around the ticket counter," a transport official told MAILTODAY.
The transport department, which consulted the Delhi Police for the exercise early this month, had deputed eight teams to perform the security audit. Contrary to general perception, the teams found that there was a shortage of CISF personnel at the Metro stations. At present, there are 4,653 CISF personnel deployed at the Metro circuits, out of which 2,850 are armed.
Another worrying fact is the presence of drug addicts at and around the entry points of sta-Safety audit finds security gaps at underground Metro stations tions. It added that these addicts were creating nuisance, especially after the dark.
'Walkie-talkies', technically known as Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA), fail to work inside the Metro, especially in the underground route, the report said. In August, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) had asked the Delhi Metro to install 'repeaters' that boost the signals required for the smooth functioning of the TETRA radio wireless communication system.
As per the DDMA, the system is unable to function in the underground tunnel area due to weak signals. "If there was an emergency situation, it would be very difficult to communicate and seek for the disaster management team because of the weak network. In case of any emergency, we need to communicate with various departments such as fire, civic bodies or hospitals. All these agencies are connected on the Tetra network," a senior DDMA official said.
When confronted, the DMRC said new 'repeaters' have been installed but the exact count cannot be revealed due to security reasons. "For security reasons, we can't reveal the total number of devices installed," a DMRC official said.
