100TH FOOT OVER BRIDGE ON SUBURBAN SECTION ON WR


Western Railway has opened a new Foot Over Bridge at Dadar connecting all platforms. This is the 100th Foot Over Bridge o­n WR's suburban section. WR now has 92 FOBs and 8 Subways o­n its suburban section including BMC FOBs.



The new Foot Over Bridge is six meter wide and connects platform No.1 to 5. It was constructed mainly during night hours without affecting the traffic as Dadar is o­ne of the busiest stations. The launching of girder was done by moving the road crane o­n track for launching of west and middle span. The FOB has been built at a cost of about Rs.1.90 Cr.



With a view to provide more convenience to its commuters and also to dissuade them from trespassing and endangering their lives, WR has taken up in hand the construction of 17 more FOBs o­n its suburban section including busiest stations like Dadar, Borivali, Goregaon, Malad, Kandivali, Vile Parle and Virar besides Matunga Road, Mahalaxmi and Lower Parel.



Western Railway plans to provide 12 escalators o­n its suburban stations including Dadar, Andheri and Borivali for the convenience of commuters, especially senior citizens and differently abled.

 Dear Members of the Railway family,                                                                                     On the solemn occasion of the 64th Republic Day, I extend my warm greetings to all members of the South Central Railway family. o­n this day we renew our commitment to dedicate ourselves to the cause of unity and progress of our Republic. Indian Railways is indeed proud to be a partner in the Nation’s progress and has been contributing to its economic and social development. South Central Railway and its staff continue to play a significant role in this process of Nation’s growth.

                                                                                                                               I am happy to share with you that continuing the remarkable achievements of last year, our performance in the current financial year also has been very encouraging.SCR's Gross Earnings of Rs. 7,200 Crs. during the first 9 months of the current financial year have shown an impressive growth of 24% over last year. The freight loading in this period is 80.6 Million Tonnes (MTs) and with this increase, it would be possible to cross the target of 111 MTs during the current financial year. The Passenger earnings have also increased by 6.5%. Our Operating Ratio, which is the key indicator of financial health, has shown remarkable improvement and now stands at 80.6% and our surplus has increased from 2090 Cr. to Rs.3060 Cr.  

                                                                           

Safety and Security of passengers is of paramount importance in our working. We have taken several initiatives, mainly focused o­n technical up gradation and system improvements to enhance safety. During the current year, the safety performance has improved by more than 30% as compared to last year. It is a matter of pride for us that the concept trial of 'Train Collision Avoidance System' for IR was successfully carried out o­n Secunderabad Division recently. The Security apparatus in Railway premises is being strengthened constantly. Special attention is being given to meet the security needs of the women passengers. 300 RPF personnel have been deployed o­n escort duty in 93 trains and are doing dedicated work.                                                                  It is our earnest resolve to make our services passenger friendly and the rail journey comfortable. Some of the measures taken in this direction are 'On-Board Housekeeping Services' in 35 trains, mechanized cleaning of coaches and setting up of 'Clean Train Stations'. Under 'Book a Meal' scheme launched recently, passengers can now book their meals through phone in 28 trains. A 24x7 catering Helpline has been set up to register passengers’ complaints regarding food and other items.

21 Lifts and 2 Escalators have already been commissioned at 11 stations to enhance passenger comfort. 14 more lifts and 38 Escalators will be provided in next few months o­n several major stations. Railways is o­ne of the most economical and comfortable mode of transport. Therefore, there are huge demands to expand railway transportation system. Based o­n availability of funds several new projects have been taken up. The final location survey of MMTS Phase-II in twin cities has been completed and fieldwork will start in few months.

 The most valuable asset of SCR is its dedicated work force.We are strongly committed to the well being of our staff.The Staff Benefit Fund has been expanding its activities to cater to their welfare. The fund has provided 1.3 Crs. of scholarships to benefit 2900 scholar wards.Door Step Health Check up Camps are being organized in a big way to benefit the employees working at wayside stations. I appreciate the positive role played by trade unions in maintaining a cordial, healthy work environment o­n SCR. I would also like to emphasize the laudable activities of the SCR Women's Welfare Organization in supporting various social causes; of the SCR Andhra Lalitha Kala Samithi in promoting Arts and Culture; and of the SCR Sports Association in encouraging sporting activities.

Our achievements so far should not make us complacent. There is a lot of scope o­n this Zone to further expand our reach and services. People look forward to us not o­nly for more number of services but to deliver them with improved quality. We have to constantly innovate and modernize our systems. The need of the hour is to utilize our scarce resources in an effective and efficient manner to meet the surge in expectations of the Public.
