Central Railway begins work to accommodate 24 coach trains at CST
MUMBAI: More long distance trains with 24 coaches will be able to ply from the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) as Central Railway has begun work on platform extension work and setting up of Route Relay Interlocking (RRI).
CR spokesperson said, "On Monday, general manager DK Sharma laid the foundation stone for RRI. The work sanctioned with estimated cost of Rs. 60.47 crores, including extension of platform No. 10, 11, 12 and 13 with Cover Over Platform, yard remodelling, etc."
building will be commissioned in a year but yard remodelling and platform extension work will be completed in two year.
He said, "Once the work in completed, more long distance trains of 24 coaches can be accommodated at CST. The yard remodelling will help in lesser detention and smooth running of long distance trains. The washable apron to be provided provided will give better cleanliness to the station."
