With incessant rains all over the State, the South Central Railways (SCR) has sounded the monsoon alert, putting into motion its readiness drill like taking up patrolling, monitoring of water levels of the tanks and other water bodies.
General Manager Vinod Kumar Yadav on Monday instructed the divisional managers concerned to concentrate on important locations like bridges and girders. On the punctuality front, an action plan to attain optimal levels and avoid unsafe working has been mooted. Track renovation works should be planned in a manner where train punctuality is not affected. Root causes of asset failures should be ascertained and corrective action initiated for system improvements, he said, during the meeting held with top officers at the Rail Nilayam. He urged them to give full co-operation to the construction organisation for completing on-going construction projects of 2017-18 within the target time, a press release said.
