Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu announced on twitter about the new 76 services that the railways are planning to start from stations such Dadar, Bandra and Kurla, a move that could make trains less crowded. This is a move to make train services more comfortable and cater newer business standards.
The CR is planning to introduce 12 services on the main line, 14 each on the Harbour and trans-harbour corridors, railway sources said. The services would be introduced in the new suburban timetable that will be introduced from October.
Population is going up and new work spots and offices are coming in the northern parts of the city. Both zones are focusing on that and working out plans to improve services in those areas.
12 new services on the main line and 14 on Harbour and trans-harbour corridors will be built by Central Railway. The services would be introduced in the new suburban timetable that will be introduced from October.
Jamshed directed Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) to expedite the Mumbai Urban Transport Project and advance its deadlines, especially for Thane-Diva 5th and 6th line that will segregate suburban and outstation train traffic between Kurla-Kalyan.
The new suburban services will begin after the monsoon. The Central Railway is likely to start 40 new services, while the Western Railway will have 36 new ones. The Mumbai divisions of both CR and WR presented their plan to Mohammad Jamshed from the railway board the Indian Railways’ policy-making body.
