थर्ड फेज में मेट्रो स्टेशनों के लिए डीएमआरसी ने तैयार किया है नया मॉडल

नई दिल्ली. थर्ड फेज में निर्माणाधीन मेट्रो स्टेशनों को हवादार बनाने के लिए डीएमआरसी ने जालीदार दीवारें बनाने का फैसला किया है। जालीदार दीवारों को बनाने का मकसद रोशनी और वेंटिलेशन की समस्या से निजात पाना है। डीएमआरसी ने आगामी मेट्रो स्टेशनों के मॉडलों से इतर नया मॉडल तैयार किया है। जिसके तहत कॉनकोर्स और प्लेटफार्म में जालीदार दीवारें बनाने का फैसला लिया गया है। जालीदार इमारतों की ऊंचाई करीब साढ़े पांच फीट होगी। इन दीवारों की मदद से मुसाफिरों की संख्या अधिक होने पर उमस की समस्या से भी निजात पाया जा सकेगा।


डीएमआरसी के वरिष्ठ अधिकारियों के अनुसार फेज तीन के अंतर्गत आने वाले एलिवेटेड मेट्रो स्टेशन के कॉनकोर्स और प्लेटफार्म पर जालीदार दीवारों को बनाने का काम शुरू कर दिया गया है। नए मॉडल पर तैयार किए जा रहे मेट्रो स्टेशन देखने में काफी आकर्षक होंगे। इसके अलावा जालीदार दीवारों से प्लेटफार्म का तापमान नियंत्रित करने में भी सहायता मिलेगी। जालीदार दीवारों से आने वाली रोशनी की मदद से स्टेशनों पर बिजली की बचत की जा सकेगी। सुरक्षा की दृष्टि से दीवारों की ऊंचाई बढ़ाने का फैसला लिया गया है। उल्लेखनीय है मेट्रो के पहले और दूसरे फेज में बनाए गए मेट्रो स्टेशनों की दीवारें करीब चार फीट ऊंची हैं।

140 मीटर लंबे होंगे प्लेटफार्म 
फेज तीन के तहत निर्माणाधीन मेट्रो स्टेशन की लंबाई करीब 140 मीटर और चौड़ाई 13 मीटर निर्धारित की गई है। इन मेट्रो स्टेशनों की क्षमता छह कोच के मेट्रो ट्रेन की होगी। नई तकनीक की मदद से मेट्रो स्टेशनों पर ट्रेनों की फ्रिक्वेंसी बढ़ाने में भी मदद मिलेगी।

No more standing in queues to book rail tickets in Bengaluru

BENGALURU: City railway station will not be less crowded and people do not have to wait in long queues to book a railway ticket any more. The south western railway Bengaluru division opened 10 counters of the Digital Dynamic Queue Management system on Tuesday in which the customer has to insert the reservation requisition slip into the custom made printer. 

The printer will print a token number with date and time, the customer has to approach to the ticket counter on the slip. The token numbers will be flashed on counters and large TV monitors as is done in banks already. The system has already proved to be successful in Mysore, Shimoga and Davanagere stations. 

A rail-road museum is also likely to shape up by April 2016. This museum will be one of the first in its kind that is expected to showcase growth of railways in India with informative charts, technical details and photographs that stand testimony to its history. This will come up in the concourse area of the city railway station in Majestic. 

The museum will be built at a cost of Rs2 crore sponsored by S Ramji, proprietor of a private firm in Mysuru. It will also have live models of metro trains running and 16 gold plated train models of which 13 trains belong to the British era. It will also have heritage buildings of Bengaluru as exhibits.

Railway surprise check to reduce technical glitches

MUMBAI: A spate of technical faults has spurred the Central Railway to carry out super checks on maintenance and repair work.

The surprise checks will be done for repair and maintenance work of rakes, tracks, signalling and Over Head Equipment (OHE) wires. As of now regular maintenance of tracks is carried out during the weekend mega blocks on both harbour and main lines.

As a result, now motormen have to maintain a daily log recording any discrepancy noticed in the rake. When the rake is brought into service, technical staff have to go through the log and attend to discrepancies if any. The surprise check will ensure that the the technical staff have gone through the log and attended to the problem mentioned.

Railway minister Suresh Prabhu has demanded greater accountability to ensure that the system is safe for passengers.

CR DRM Amitabh Ojha said, "We are going to carry out super checks or surprise checks of the system to ensure that the system is more fool proof. These checks will be carried out by officials from other sections or senior personnel to ensure greater accountability."

For OHE surprise checks will ensure if adequate clearance has been maintained and parameters adhered to. Similar checks will be done for tracks and signalling.

"Such random surprise checks will definitely keep the staff on toes," a senior railway official said.

Railways to replace 16 corroded girders on Pamban bridge

RAMESWARAM: After completing major re-girdering works by replacing 28 highly corroded girders on the Pamban railway bridge, railways will now undertake another similar task to replace 16 girders. 

The re-girdering work between January 6 and September 18 took place without affecting train traffic. After the guard rail and running rail were renewed in 2014-15, re-girdering of the spans were taken up and completed without causing much disturbance to existing train services. 

"We have successfully completed the re-girdering of 28 spans and we will carry out work to replace another 16 spans. Preliminary works have commenced and we will complete the project by the end of this financial year," said Madurai divisional railway manager Sunil Kumar Garg. 

Re-girdering work was estimated at a cost of Rs 6.76 crore to replace the girders between the 60th and 145th spans which were more than 28 years old. 

During gauge conversion in 2007, only 22 new girders were laid and the remaining 122 were strengthened after re-bracing. The dimensions of each girder were 13.30m in length, 2.35m in breadth and 1.25m in height and weighed 11 tonnes. 

It turned out to be a laborious process since it was carried out manually with the help of a gantry as machinery could not be moved on the bridge. This is the first time after the gauge conversion that the girders are replaced, railway officials said. 

Hi Tech Engineers from Ramanathapuram, which was awarded the contract, was given schedules to replace the girders by working three days a week - Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays -- when train services were suspended from 6.10 to 9.10am so that least disturbance is caused. 

Due to this work, only two trains were affected by delay (of 30 to 40 minutes) on the first day of the commencement of work. Otherwise, the re-girdering work was completed within the time constraint of allotted three hours, officials said.
