Konkan Railway today said it has implemented various measures to ensure smooth flow of services on the section during upcoming monsoon season.
It has completed all the planned safety works on its route from Kolad (after Roha station on Central Railway) to Thokur (before Mangalore station).
“About 770 personnel will be patrolling the Konkan Railway route during the monsoon and vulnerable locations will be patrolled round-the-clock, besides stationary watchmen will be deployed for 24 hours at critical locations. Mounted excavators have been kept ready at all nominated points for quick movement in case of any emergency,” Konkan Railway said in a statement.
It also said that speed restrictions will be imposed at vulnerable locations on the stretch. Konkan Railway said the incidents of boulder falls and soil slip have been reduced significantly in the last 10-12 years due to largescale geo-safety works executed along the railway line. Read More
