MUMBAI: Central Railway (CR) has converted the old ticketing station into an area for passengers of most crowded trains to queue up as part of steps to better manage the summer vacation crowd at the Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT).
A senior official will monitor the arrangements along with a team of the Railway Police Force (RPF). The Railway has plans to implement similar crowd management for the Ganpati festival for Konkan and Goa passengers.
“We have reviewed how many passengers were boarding from which trains of LTT have heavy crowds and on which platform of the LTT. We identified 14 express trains that have bumper demand,” an official said.
Passengers of Darbhanga Express (11061) and Mumbai LTT - Varanasi SF Express (12167) will now be stationed on platform 5. They will have to assemble at old booking station.
Passengers of the 12336 LTT-BGP SF express, Bareilly Express (14313) and Guwahati Express (15645), boarding from platform number 1, have been asked to assemble at LTT concourse towards Kalyan end.
“The passengers of the unreserved coaches will be managed by the RPF,” the official said.
Additional Division Railway Manager Vidyadhar Malegaonkar said, “These measures have been taken so that passengers travelling in unreserved coaches can board the trains systematically and without any problem”.
