S. M. Ashraf Agreeing with Mr. Sengupta, crowd handling needs more attention. Much will be solved by putting escalators on both sides of the two bridges, and on all platforms. Seating facilities should be increased on platforms. Toilets should be on both ends of the platforms. Most of tea stalls remain closed during late night hours.
Crowd handling at the entrances is very poor. Safe Parking facility which is very expensive is only near the Ajmeri Gate. Seating facilities & E_VEHICLES are hardly there or not available.!!! Escalators are required on both sides to cater to aged & the ill
One train run between Hathras & Delhi (HAD) every day morning 6.00 am, but this train does not have any toilet facilities in the train. passengers specially ladies & children's feel lot of difficulties during their travel. Railway employees still not under stud the problem after running this train more than 20 years. I can not understand, how we can handle these govt. employees.
After Mr.Suresh Prabhu took over the reigns, the state of Indian railway platform has become fantastic. Earlier we used to see/get dirty things(and even dirty smell of toilet(i.e., urine smell)) on the platforms/walkovers. Now, there are cleaners standing alert in these areas and maintaining it pretty clean. I observed this especially in Bangalore and Mantralaya railway stations. Also there are many services like 'destination station alert' and dedicated telephone numbers for different services etc.,
Kudos to Mr. Suresh Prabhu and his team for the great work which was not observed for many years earlier. This is the best example to highlight that 'IF ONE WANTS TO DO THE WORK/SERVICE, HE/SHE CAN DO IT AT ANY COST IRRESPECTIVE OF THE SIZE OF THE ORGANIZATION'.
The chennai egmore railway station 79 pairs of trains leave and arrive to & from various Destinations .
Then it is also the suburban / commuter train station .
Now the Metro rail also goes through this station called Egmore Metro.
What is grossly lacking in this 3 Railway staion complex and Bus bay is adequate Parking space for cars . All the 4 have been close to each other and well lanned , with adequate available place . Only th Egmore Metro has parking on the Northern side . The parking for the Railway in the southern side is very very Little . If a family member comes to drop an elderly traveler/s , , will need to park the car , accompany the elderlt traveller to the train . That wa snot possible . The Metro parking side can yield some space for the Railway parking also.
