Indore: The Indore railway station would be soon predominantly used for pick & drop facility as most of the trains would start & terminate at Mhow. In order to reduce the congestion of trains, also doubling work of the Indore-Dewas section would be started soon, said RN Sunkar, the divisional railway manager (DRM) of Ratlam division, who recently assumed charge, at the city railway station on Friday, after finishing his maiden inspection of Mhow & Indore railway stations.
- “Construction of second pit-lines in Mhow would be completed in next few months. Thereafter, maintenance of majority of the long distance trains, which is currently carried out at the city railway station, would be shifted to Mhow,” Sunkar said.
- He said,“The move will help carry out the operation of trains from cantonment town. Thereafter, these trains would avail just ‘pick & drop’ facility to passengers at the city railway station. New pit-lines in Mhow would also help in rolling out new trains from the city railway station.”
- Doubling of the Indore-Ujjain section via Dewas was already sanctioned, Sunkar said.
- He said,“We are trying to start the work as soon as possible. After the doubling project, complaints of late reaching of trains at the city railway station would mitigate.”
