Mangaluru: Work on Island platforms in central train station to be over by Feb 2023

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Dec 8: Construction work of fourth and fifth island type platforms is in progress at central railway station of the city.

The work of levelling and wall erection of platform is almost complete. Tiling, roof and foot overbridge work is pending. The platforms will be ready for use during February 2023 according to Palakkad division public relation officer of railways M K Gopinathan.

The construction work of the platforms began in May 2022 due to a long-standing demand of railway passengers of coastal region. New platforms will be 540 meter in length and 10 meters wide. The total cost of project is Rs 4.5 crore. These platforms do not have direct road access. They need to be accessed through foot over bridge from other platforms. First, second and third platforms of central railway station that have direct road access are not island type platforms.

Two mammoth banian trees that were 50 and 20 years old were shifted to make space for the construction recently under the guidance of environmentalist Jeeth Milan Roche. The trees were shifted and planted at a distance of 200 meters from the original spot with the use of cranes, ultra modern machinery, personnel of railway department and environmentalists.

    I hope escalators is going are installed on foot over bridge as it will be of great help to senior citizens. Railways have improved the trains, but not maintained well. Stations are and platforms should be modernized. I like the new Bangalore railway station. (Sir M. Visvesvaraya terminal)

    Good job I think Mangalore can still get better ..Fix the hindrances in the foot paths(remove the poles and holes) . Erect traffic signs at all roads,Junctions ..display Speed limits ,warning signs etc. Manage public utility and facilities such as parks and approach roads properly. Maintain cleanliness at all public facilities such as KAdri park ,Panamburbeach etc. Create no litter and spitting zones. Ban Pan, Strictly do not allow parking in non-designated areas(Especially Kadri park)
