PIMPRI CHINDIWAD: The Central Railway will consider the demand of a foot over bridge (FOB) near Dehu Road railway station provided the local self government bodies or state government bear the expenditure .
Explaining the problem of Dehu road residents, Ramesh Jadhav, the former president of the Dehu road unit of Shiv Sena said, "Central Ordnance Depot, post office, State Bank of India, Station Headquarters, Dehu Road Cantonment Board office and main bus stop for Dehu is located on one side of the track. On the other side, there is the Dehu road main market, vegetable market, the Pune-Mumbai highway and the cantonment run school. There was a pathway from where people crossed railway lines to go to the other side as
a shortcut but now railways have put up barricades near the railway lines so that people do not cross over," he said.
Bashir Sutar, a member of the advisory committee of the railways said, "We had met the Pune divisional railway manager BK Dadabhoy a fortnight ago and submitted a memorandum demanding the construction of a FOB. He visited the station Wednesday and saw that people were still crossing the railway lines and risking their lives."
The railways on the other hand says that it can only provide an NOC and cannot actually execute the construction. The public relations officer of the Pune division of Central Railways Manoj Jhawar said, "Senior railway officials said that there is a public demand for the FOB to enable the public to cross the railway station premises. While there is a demand for this public utility, railway does not spend its money for public utilities. The local self-government bodies or the state government have to bear the expenditure for creating public utilities. The railways will consider the proposal for creating the FOB sympathetically. We will only be considering the proposal to give an NOC if there is such a proposal."
