Days after a bridge in Mumbai collapsed on a railway track, the railways yesterday launched its first consolidated Bridge Management System (IR-BMS), a web-enabled IT application to store data on its 1.5 lakh bridges.
Railway Minister Piyush Goyal yesterday launched BMS for “meaningful assimilation, analysis and dissemination of information related to various activities” about its bridges, a statement from the national transporter said.
The web-based platform, developed by Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) will show the bridge master data, works data, information regarding inspection/monitoring and maintenance of the bridges and other essentials.
Goyal at the launch, also felicitated artists whose work at seven railway stations across the country won them the top prize in the national transporter’s in-house station beautification contest. This innovative competition was organised among zonal railways in December 2017. Read More
