Rs 120-cr rail safety project kicked off

A day after chief minister Prithviraj Chavan announced World Bank-funded safety project worth Rs. 120 crore to curb deaths on the city’s railway tracks, the Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC’s), the executing body of the project, started its preparatory work.

The safety project proposal includes construction of barricades, green patches between tracks, widening of existing FOBs, constructing additional FOBs, RCC wall, staircases, escalators, lifts and ramps in the railway premises to control trespassing.

While the state had approved the project around three months ago, clearance from the department of economic affairs, ministry of finance, has been obtained now. As a result, the corporation has started finalising designs, drawings, plans and tendering document required for the project.
