Northeast Frontier Railway (N.F. Railway) has taken a quantum jump towards safety on 12th September, 2018 by eliminating all Unmanned Level Crossings through various means. As on 1st April, 2018, total 151 Unmanned Level Crossings elimination were planned and despite very stiff target and ongoing monsoon, all 151 Unmanned Level Crossings have been eliminated.
Out of the total 151 numbers eliminated, were 136 Unmanned Level Crossings eliminated by Manning, 10 Unmanned level Crossings were eliminated by construction of Road Under Bridge and 5 Unmanned Level Crossings eliminated by direct closing.
It is to be mentioned that under the direction of Minister of Railways, Shri Piyush Goyal all the zones were to eliminate Unmanned level crossing by 31st March, 2019.
By yesterday’s feat N.F. Railway becomes one of the 1st railways to achieve this target ahead of the stipulated time.
Unmanned Level Crossings are considered one of the weakest links in the safety preparedness of Indian Railway as a considerable percentage of accidents have occurred due to carelessness of road users at these unguarded crossings. This is the reason why N.F. Railway had targeted the elimination of Unmanned Level Crossings on mission mode.
