For the first time after the Corona period, the load of trains on the tracks increased, in Bihar the speed of trains started stopping on the outer tracks.

Anand Tiwari, Patna. First, the problems of railway passengers have increased due to long wait at the railway station and then stopping of the train at the outer for hours. Especially since last 10 days, this problem is happening with the passengers coming to Patna Junction. Due to lack of signal at the junction, most of the trains are standing on the outer side between Secretariat and Hardinge Park. Some trains are being stopped at the outer for 20 minutes and some for one to one and a half hours. This problem is happening with passenger trains as well as superfast trains. According to experts, due to increase in the number of special trains due to Chhath festival, the load has increased by 25 percent, due to which the platform at the junction does not remain empty and due to this, trains are being stopped at the outer.

It took one hour 38 minutes to reach Patna Junction from Danapur.

Recently, train number 15657 Brahmaputra Mail running from Delhi to Kamakhya reached Danapur station at 2:05 pm. After this, it reached Phulwarisharif at 2:11 and Secretariat halt at 2:16. But after opening from Secretariat halt, this train was stopped for hours at the outer of Patna Junction. In such a situation, this train reached platform number 2 of Patna Junction at 3:43 pm instead of 2:20 pm. In this way, this train took more than one hour 38 minutes to reach Patna Junction from Danapur. The same situation was seen in Magadh Express and Malda Town Farakka Express running from Delhi and Islampur. According to eyewitnesses, more than a dozen trains have been stopping at Outer every day for the last 10 days.

The number of trains arriving daily increased from 135 to 200.

At a station where there are two signals, if the train has to be stopped before bringing it to the platform, then it is first stopped at the outer signal. This is the first stop sign of the train before arriving at the station. It is built at a reasonable distance from the station. If outer signal is not present then the first stop signal of the train is home signal. The outer signal is also given a considerable distance from the home signal. This is done so that if the train needs to be stopped somewhere before home, it can be stopped easily. These days, due to Chhath festival, more than 200 trains are passing through Patna Junction every day. Due to which the load on the track has increased. Before this, the movement of trains was between 120 and 135. In such a situation, if there is already a vehicle on the platform. Therefore, the train coming to that platform is stopped at the outer one. Even if your train reaches on time.

Instructions to bring another train only when the platform is empty

In view of the extra crowd of passengers and safety and security on Chhath festival, Railways has taken several decisions. In the same sequence, the driver, guard and station master have also been told not to run the train until the passengers completely board the train or the platform is completely vacated. This is the reason why many times trains have to be parked on the outskirts. Gradually the traffic load will reduce and trains will start running like before.
