TRICHY: Palakkarai railway station, one of the oldest stations in Trichy division, is in a pathetic state as the railway tracks and the area around it have become a place for open defecation. Since there are no boundary walls on both sides of the track, rail users have urged the authorities to renovate the station immediately.
Palakkarai used to be one of the busiest railway stations in Trichy railway division with both express and passenger trains stopping there. Hundreds of commuters including school, college students, and office-goers used the station. Now, no express trains stop at the station and only the Trichy - Karur - Erode passenger halts there.
to this, the station has been left without maintenance and the entire area in and around the station have become garbage dump yard. Residents defecate in the open on the tracks. The platforms and the station building are surrounded by thorny plants. Stray animals roam the area. The tracks and platforms are filthy, said K Janardhanan, a resident of Trichy.
Secretary of Consumer Protection Council, Tamil Nadu, Golden Rock branch, H Ghouse Baig said the station is located at the heart of the city and also a few kilometres away from the Trichy Junction.
“Railways should ensure minimum maintenance and provide basic amenities to the passengers,” he said.
When contacted, a senior officer from Trichy railway division said that redevelopment of Palakkarai station was on the anvil.
