Addition of new platforms to Bokaro and Purulia stations shortly after TT line upgrades complete. Bokaro station is a terminal for quite a few and many in near future. Adra asked for permission from BSL to dismantle sidings to add two new platforms 10 months ago. Approval is still awaited. Sidings will be shifted beside platforms at a slightly lower altitude. While platform in Purulia is already constructed, Passenger amenities and interlockings are absent. A train coming from Asansol/Adra/Ranchi/Bokaro cannot go to the newly levelled platform. Old abandoned house and few structures needs to be abolished to make proper complex switches at the station. DCM said that due to high passenger demand and freight diversion we can't take risks to stop train movement there. Atleast 5 days of interlocking tasks are to done. Freight sidings and pit line will be reconstructed to handle the demand after proper planning and timing. Bokaro...

* But, I do not see BSL responding to the request made by ADRA division as it has been 10 months. How long we have to wait if they are not replying ?
* I have seen such gaps between two face to face platforms at GKP and many stations. But, it is alright if the division is planning for new platforms by dismantling the last two tracks.
* Are you sure that the washing pit line needs water supply only ? Because when I visited it last time, the cemented platform structure

was broken at many places. I just hope it does not take too long to make it fit.

BSL will need to invest for land levelling for sidings which is the why they may be taking time for allocation. Freight traffic is very high at BKSC compared to GKP. For efficient controlling 3-4 lines gap is good like in TATA, ADRA, KGP, PRR, ROU, CNI specially for mainline freights.
Those fixtures of pit line is a matter of a week time work for the department. Main highlighting point is water supply which is planned so others won't get affected.

It's still better than the one in TATA. Pillars were broken yet was used for a month and then got repaired and white washed.

It may take years for the new platforms to come up because the division will not be able to progress before BSL's node. It is possible that they keep delaying the reply because they are at no loss side whereas for BKSC , it is important to have new platforms for its terminal expansion.

If you are discussing flight then no need to TAG Hwh station unnecessary
I am sure your brother won't go to HWH station to catch flight.

Chas, Ispat Nagar and Bandhdih station are going to be operational very soon. Local people wanted Bengali to be written on boards. Do you want Adra div to add Bengali names in their station premises? Think and vote.
Yes. no problem.62%8
No. not required.38%5

Via TATA route is very long which is against passengers' demand. Both the new dedicates of PRR and BKSC may run via Arambagh. Else no hope.

But, that route may take up 1 year to complete. BKSC-HWH and RNC-HWH were serving Bokaro really well, now the areas near BKSC station are getting affected because the bus stand is far.

Have to wait! After the route completes, HWH bond from PRR will be the biggest hit. BKSC will get 2nd dedicate to HWH.

No. of MEMUs running have not been increased between ASN and PRR irrespective of increasing demand. TATA-ASN Exp already a famous train, extension upto HWH isn't feasible and a good solution cause it's a small rake that too crowded plus ER has lots of pressure. Purulia will only be provided with MEMUs after ASN-BURN section is doubled. It's the most hungry Station of the stretch till TATA.

Ranchi residents still prefer Kriya Yog Express due to its extra suitable time-table. You can start late night from Ranchi, Reach HWH Early morning do your work and then return back in the night by the same train. If a businessman has to take Shatabdi then they would have to stay in Hotel at Kolkata for 2 nights for just 1 productive work day. That's why there has been a huge surge in Air Travelers between Ranchi - CCU in the last few months. There are 6 daily flights now between the 2 cities - 2 Indigo Air, 2 Air Asia, 1 Go Air and 1 Alliance Air (Air India). From July there will be a 7th Daily flight between Ranchi and Kolkata. Out of these 6 current flights , 5 are A320 Aircrafts with about 180 Seats each and 1 is ATR of 72 capacity. This makes it about...

972 seats each way.
Time-table is extremely important for the demand of any train. On one hand there are so many Shatabdi seats that get occupied from Dhanbad station , on the other side, DD (Double Decker) gets shelved due to extremely poor patronage.

Power Shortage makes division to rethink about temporary power supply to Ispat Nagar and Chas stations under Bokaro district of Jharkhand. This is the first time ever when ADRA is encountered terribly by a such a small issue. DCM Bhaskar said Adra's coverage is mostly under West Bengal where electricity is regular and cheap with highest efficiency in Eastern India. We are planning to invest extra to get power from nearby plant of STPS of Purulia owned by WBPDCL. Power supply from CTPS and Bokaro Th. Plant is not reliable at the moment. We will get the stations registered with STPS railway grid soon.

There has been a lot of power shortage in bokaro.. in all my 18 years there never had I witnessed this mayhem..
The problems that have arisen arose after a huge thunderstorm in the area around the 20th of May and that storm I believe has had a domino effect...
It's better that Adra searches for alternatives as the IPTN route shoulders the responsibility of a lot of people in Jharkhand

It's not just since 20th May. Since last 6 months ADRA has been struggling hard for proper power supply to city reservation office in the township. Previous year also the issue was same. If there is a grid failure(high probable), why not supply undisruptive power from alternate sources? I believe the township has that system. Like in KGPW, KGP colonies there had been 3 grid failures caused by thunder in this month only. Power supply was undisruptive through other sources like Kolaghat plant, Bandel plant and more..

Even after having 3 thermal power plants in Bokaro district it is struggling with regular power supply. The power issue in Chas has been prevailing since a long time.
