Trains from city to be cleaner from now

Nod For 2nd Coaching Terminal At Sabarmati

Quote:
The Ahmedabad Division of Indian Railways has got permission for a second coaching terminal in the city . This will mean that the city will get better proper cleaning and washing of trains originating in the city .

Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Rahul Agrawal said that the Railways now plans to terminate some trains at Sabarmati as it is a popular station for north-bound trains. He further said that Sabarmati station is getting more attention and the railways hence decided to upgrade passenger amenities at this station.

Agrawal said the number of platforms for broad gauge trains at Sabarmati was also increased, with facilities of tin shed on the lines of Kalupur station. Agarwal said that apart from upgrading Sabarmati station, Railways has also decided to upgrade existing passenger amenities aboard trains. The cleanliness quotient of another 15 long distance trains originating from Ahmedabad is likely to go up, as Ahmedabad Division has extended onboard cleaning service in these 15 trains.

Agrawal said contract staff would move through the train through the journey and also clean compartments on demand. “With cleanliness and hygienic conditions for passengers high on priority , housekeeping facilities have been started on major and long-distance trains starting from Ahmedabad division.This facility was first introduced in the Rajdhani Express (Ahmedabad-New Delhi), Sabarmati Express (Ahmedabad-Banaras), Sabarmati Express (Ahmedabad-Darbhanga) and Parasnath Express (Ahmedabad-Aasansol). He said that after getting positive feedback from passengers, the same facility has been extended to 15 other trains.

Delhi-bound trains to originate from Sabarmati by March

Quote:
If everything goes to plan, Sabarmati railway station will see its first train originate from there in March next year. Western Railway has decided to construct five platforms which will be able to handle stoppages of 24-coach trains.

Divisional railway officer Rahul Agarwal said construction work has begun and is likely to be completed by January . The officials said Sabarmati will serve as an alternative to Kalupur, especially for trains originating from Ahmedabad and headed towards Delhi.

Agarwal further said that the station has two broad-gauge platforms and one meter-gauge platform.With the conversion of the Ahmedabad-Mehsana line, the station will have three broadgauge platforms and two more are being constructed.

Officials said important trains like Ashram Express, Rajdhani and Delhi Mail will originate from Sabarmati. Officials said that Members of Parliament in meetings with railway authorities said that with Kalupur railway station reaching its peak, the Railways should have Maninagar and Sabarmati as terminal stations from where the trains can originate.

Meanwhile, an official said that the railways had set a target for on-board cleaning services in 26 trains and the service has begun on 21 trains. The five remaining trains will also get the services soon. The railways will promote its Clean my Coach mobile app and posters will be put on trains to make more people use it. The railways has been getting nearly 200 complaints everyday about coach cleaning.

The DRM also said that barring platforms 8 and 9, all platforms will have lifts. Platform 12, like the platform 1, will have an escalator.
