Vysarpadi Jeeva will receive a raft of facilities, including better illumination, a factor that may help check petty thefts at the facility
One of the oldest railway stations in the city – Vysarpadi Jeeva – will be receive a facelift soon. Work on developing modern facilities, including tiled pathways on platforms to make it easier for commuters to detrain, and computerised reservation counters has already begun.

around Rs. 90 lakh and the work is expected to be completed in a few months.
“Unlike other railway stations, including Perambur and Basin Bridge, which are key stations where long distance trains halt, Vysarpadi railway station caters to local commuters,” said a railway official.
After Royapuram, Vysarpadi is the oldest and one of the busiest stations in the western parts of the city. It connects Chennai Central with Arakkonam, Tiruvallur and Tiruttani. More importantly, the Vysarpadi railway station is located at the centre of four rail routes for long distance trains that head to the north (Gummudipoondi), west (Jolarpet via Arakkonam), south (Egmore) and east (Chennai Central).
Work on replacing the damaged concrete floor of the platform with tiles is currently being undertaken. The rest of the platform will be concrete floor.
New seating arrangements, electronic boards displaying train timings, better illumination, water cooler and food stalls are others amenities that will come up at the station.
“Policemen patrol the station, especially during the evening hours, to prevent anti-socials from roaming near the facility,” said S. Lakshmi, a commuter from Vysar Nagar.
For many years, chain snatching, luggage and cell phone thefts have been reported from the station. It’s proximity to crime-prone areas, poor illumination at the railway station and also on the stretches connecting the station, the railway station at Vysarpadi has been a den for anti-socials for years.

Anyone who visits Vyasarpadi Jeeva railway station after dusk will have to tread carefully till they reach the main road - thanks to the poor lighting in the station and the approach road and criminals lurking under the cover of darkness.
On Wednesday night too, a passenger was waylaid by two persons on the approach road also known as the Station Border Road. V. Revanth, a 19-year old student, was returning home around 10 p.m. after attending a wedding in Tambaram. “When I was coming out, two persons followed me. They stole my ring, mobile phone and Rs. 500 at knife point,” explains Revanth. He then filed a complaint with the Government Railway Police (GRP).  
Meanwhile,

regular commuters claim that there are hardly any policemen in the station after 9 p.m. “It is a single-platform station. There is no proper lighting in the subway leading to the ticket counter,” said K. S. Gopalakrishnan, former member of the Zonal Railway Users Consultative Committee, Southern Railway.
Similar is the condition of the approach road, which has no lighting. “I was riding on this stretch a month ago and I saw a man being waylaid at knife point. Since it is deserted, there is no point crying for help,” said K. Ramalingam, a resident of Perambur.
According to some residents, they often see people indulging in anti-social activities on this stretch. “The police personnel do not seem to bother. The police patrol vehicles don’t even cover these stretches citing jurisdiction,” added S. Mathialagan, a construction worker.
Mr. Gopalakrishnan said that a similar situation prevails in Pattabiram railway station too. “The railways should improve lighting in all railway stations and the approach roads. There should be police presence so that commuters can travel without fear.

அரக்கோணம், திருவள்ளூர் போன்ற பகுதிகளில் இருந்து சென்னைக்கு பல்வேறு பணிகளுக்கு வருபவர்களின் எண்ணிக்கை மட்டும் சுமார் 20 ஆயிரத்தை தாண்டும். இவர்கள் பணி முடிந்து திரும்பும்போது, இரவு 9 மணிக்குமேல் ஆகிவிடும். இதில், குறிப்பிட்ட நேரத்தில் வீடு திரும்பும் பெண்களின் எண்ணிக்கை மட்டும் சுமார் 3 ஆயிரத்துக்கும் மேல் இருக்கும். வெளி மாவட்டங்களுக்கு செல்லும் திருவனந்தபுரம் எக்ஸ்பிரஸ், ஏற்காடு எக்ஸ்பிரஸ், ஆழப்புலா எக்ஸ்பிரஸ் போன்ற ரயில்களில் பயணம் செய்து தங்கள் இடங்களில் ஆண்கள் இறங்கி விடுகின்றனர். ஆனால் பெண்கள், புறநகர் ரயில்களை மட்டுமே நம்பி பயணம் செய்ய வேண்டியுள்ளது. இந்நிலையில், வியாசர்பாடி ஜீவா, பெரம்பூர் லோகோ போன்ற ரயில் நிலையங்களில் ஏறும் குடிமகன்கள் இரவு நேரத்தில் பயணிக்கும் பெண்களை பாட்டுப்பாடி கேலி செய்வது போன்ற அநாகரீகமான செயல்களில் ஈடுபடுகின்றனர். சென்டரலில் இருந்து பெரம்பூர் வரை இருக்கும் ரயில்வே பாதுகாப்பு போலீசாரால் குடிமகன்களை கட்டுப்படுத்த முடிவதில்லை. பல நேரங்களில் ஜெனரல் கம்பார்ட்மென்ட்களில் நிகழும் இது போன்ற அத்துமீறல்களை தட்டிக்கேட்கும் பயணிகளுக்கு குடிமகன்களால் தர்ம அடி அல்லது அர்ச்சனைகள் கிடைப்பது வாடிக்கையாக உள்ளது.
