Commuters also demand opening advance ticket booking counter
The commuters have demanded the railways to increase the height of the platform at Vazhapadi gate railway station and also open advance ticket booking counter here.
Vazhapadi hate is a halt station in the Salem – Attur section, catering to the people of Vazhapadi town and the surrounding villages.
Being a major trading centre, the
Salem – Chennai Egmore overnight express train and all the passenger trains being operated in the Salem – Attur – Vriddhachalam section halt here in both the directions.
The platform in this station is a middle height platform, unlike the regular platforms. Many people from the nearby villages board the passenger trains with stocks of vegetables for marketing in Salem city.
The commuters, particularly the senior citizens, women and children find it difficult to get into and alight from the trains. A cross section of the passengers has urged the railways to increase the height of the platform.
Though Vazhapadi is a major trading centre, there is no advance reservation ticket booking facility in this station.
This is a halt station, where the work of issuing tickets, maintaining the railway station is left with private people.
S. Jawahar, a former member of the Salem Railway Division Railway Consultative Committee, has urged the Salem Railway Division to open a advance reservation counter in the station.
Mr. Jawahar also urged the Salem division to take steps for setting up a waiting hall, cloak room at the railway station.

Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...
