The South Central Railway has announced that it will be eliminating all the unmanned level crossings by September next year (2018) by taking up construction of Limited Height Subways (LHS) / Road Over Bridges (ROBs) / manning of gates and so on, according to the General Manager Vinod Kumar Yadav on Monday.

Directing all the divisional managers to conduct safety drills and track maintenance works meticulously, he said they should identify areas of immediate attention.

Periodical training module implementation should be done for understanding and mitigating the difficulties faced while carrying out the work.

In order to clear extra rush of passengers, 56 special trains will run between Visakhapatnam – Secunderabad, Visakhapatnam – Tirupati, Kacheguda – Kakinada Port and Kacheguda - Krishnarajapuram in October and November.
