मंगलवार रात प्रगति मैदान के समीप एक बड़ा रेल हादसा टल गया। निर्माणाधीन अंडरपास की मिट्टी धंसने के कारण ताज एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन को लाल झंडी दिखाकर एन वक्त पर रोका गया। गनीमत रही कि समय रहते स्थिति पर काबू पा लिया गया। इस दौरान ट्रेनों की आवाजाही प्रभावित रही। मथुरा रोड और भैरो मार्ग पर जाम खत्म करने के लिए प्रगति मैदान के नीचे पीडब्ल्यूडी द्वारा टनल बनाई जा रही है। यह टनल रेलवे लाइन के नीचे से गुजर रही है। यहां बॉक्स को पुश करने का काम किया जा रहा है। मंगलवार रात रेलवे ट्रैक के नीचे की मिट्टी धंस गई और रेल ट्रैक का स्ट्रक्चर (एलाइनमेंट) बिगड़ गया।इसी बीच निजामुद्दीन से नई दिल्ली के लिए ताज एक्सप्रेस आ रही थी। मौके पर मौजूद रेलवे कर्मी ने तत्परता दिखाते हुए लाल झंडी दिखाकर ट्रेन को रुकवाया। इस दौरान यह रूट करीब डेढ़ घंटे तक बंद कर दिया...

गया। डेढ़ घंटे बाद दो लाइनों को छोड़कर बाकी लाइनों पर रेल सेवा बहाल कर दी गई।रेलवे इंजीनियरिंग विभाग की टीम ने बुधवार सुबह सभी लाइनों पर ट्रेनों के संचालन की अनुमति दी। हालांकि, 20 किलोमीटर प्रतिघंटे का गतिरोध के साथ ट्रेनें चलीं। बाद डाउन मैन लाइन और ईएमयू लाइन को छोड़कर बाकी रेलवे लाइन चालू कर दी गईं।बताया जा रहा है कि ताज एक्सप्रेस तीन घंटे देर रात तक सुनसान इलाके में खड़ी रही।इस वजह से ताज एक्सप्रेस, भोपाल शताब्दी मुख्य रूप से प्रभावित हुई। अन्य ट्रेनों को दूसरी लाइनों से निकाला गया। तीसरी लाइन को तड़के 3:45 बजे फिट करार दिया गया और चौथी रेल लाइन को 6:20 बजे फिट बताया गया।उत्तर रेलवे के मुख्य जनसंपर्क अधिकारी दीपक कुमार के अनुसार, वैसे तो रेलवे लाइन के नीचे व ऊपर वाले हिस्से में रेलवे ही काम करता है, लेकिन इस प्रोजेक्ट के तहत काम कंस्ट्रक्शन कंपनी कर रही है। रेलवे ट्रेनों को सही तरीके से संचालन कराने के लिए लगातार निगरानी कर रही है।

many as 1,13,413 tickets were sold from all Metro station on Wednesday with Pragati Maidan Metro station alone selling 36,945 tickets. “The average ridership of Pragati Maidan station on normal days hovers around 15,000. Since November 19, when trade fair opened for public, the average ridership of the station has shot up to approximately 80,000 passengers,” said an official.
Passengers travelling on the over 50-km-long Blue Line, which connects Dwarka to Noida, were left stranded for long durations owing to the rush on Wednesday. In some cases the delays stretched to as long as an hour.
DMRC officials said that on the Blue Line, 17 extra trains had been pressed into service on Wednesday that made around 100 extra trips in comparison to an off day (Sunday) time table.
Officials claimed that there was no failure of the Metro system throughout the day but train movement was regulated at Pragati Maidan due to the large inflow of trade fair visitors.
“Trains from Yamuna Bank and Mandi House were stopped till one batch of people cleared the platform and the concourse of Pragati Maidan station. The trains were signaled in to accommodate the next rush of passengers. This caused a delay in the services on the Noida/Vaishali section,” an official said.
A trade fair official confirmed that Wednesday had registered a whopping footfall of around two lakh people.

was satisfied with the overall preparedness of the staff in handling the fair rush at the station. He was accompanied by Director (Operations) Sharat Sharma and Director (Project) D.K. Saini," said Anuj Dayal, DMRC Executive Director.
Among a host of measures, the trains will be running at the peak hour frequency of 2 min 40 sec from Dwarka to Yamuna Bank (Line 3) throughout the day, from 8 am to 8 pm.
Two trains on each line will also be kept as standby during the fair to facilitate better passenger handling, whenever required.
A total of 24 token counters with separate counters for specific token denominations and destinations will be put up at the Pragati Maidan Metro station on all working days. During weekends and holidays, the number of these counters will be increased to 32.
Tokens or smart cards will be available from 1 pm to 9 pm on all general days, from November 19 to November 27 at gate number 10. Additional customer facilitation agents will be deployed at stations like Central Secretariat, Rajiv Chowk, Kashmere Gate, for guiding and managing the crowd in the ticketing area.
Extra security guards will be present at the platforms, automatic fare collection gates, escalators, lifts, and token counters at Pragati Maidan.
At the Pragati Maidan station, queue-managers have been put for the physical segregation of the entry and exit points of the commuters. This will help in avoiding cross movements and crowding near automatic fare collection gates.
