Nov 22 2016 (10:04) Rlys vows to replace older coaches after tragedy
❤ WAP7 ❤~ 1107 news posts
Shaken from its slumber by the worst train accident in six years, the Railways has promised to step up production of modern Linke Holfmann Bush (LHB) coaches to replace old Integral Coach Factory (ICF) designed coaches and to resist the temptation of announcing new trains on overburdened routes.
The toll could have been much lesser had the Railways completely switched over to the manufacture of LHB coaches -which do not pile up unlike the earlier coaches in case of an accident -as suggested by the Anil Kakodkar panel on railway safety in 2012.

This accident has given otherwise sidelined opposition, to go after the ruling party govt, so some assurance is a must. Production of ICF coaches has already been gradually brought to halt over the years, there is nothing new in the announcement.
Freeze all the unwanted loss making projects under implementation for some years and put all the resources in augmenting and strengthening of track/ other infrastructure in order to promote safety.
