Washable concrete platform aprons yet to be built at Kannur station
The railway tracks along the three platforms of the Kannur railway station give waiting passengers and railway staff the creeps day in and day out and they cannot do anything about it.
More than the feeling of disgust, the filthy tracks raise concerns about serious health hazards, while the proposal for providing washable aprons remains far from being materialised any time soon.
Quite interesting to note that the station masters association wanted the Railway authorities to approve the proposal for receiving all down trains from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. on platform 3 to mitigate the problem of exposed excreta on the track of the main platform.
Is approval required from higher authorities to decide which platforms to be used for receiving and dispatching of trains. I though that these calls are decided by people at the railway station itself [station master etc] ????
