Coach indicators and an electronic display board on train timings would be installed at the Balangir railway station by January 2016.
Sambalpur DRM DK Singh, who visited the railway station on Saturday, said this while responding to a query of our correspondent. Notably, the Railways have already sanctioned for installation of coach indicators and a train display board here.
The entire station was cleaned up ahead of his visit.
A delegation of BJP Yuva Morcha activists led by Dinesh Sharma submitted a memorandum to the DRM demanding installation of these systems and other facilities at the railway station.
The DRM went around the station and asked the officials to take steps to keep chairs at proper places and ensure lighting and water supply facilities at the station.
It would be pertinent to mention that due to absence of coach indicators, commuters are getting confused during night hours to find out coaches within stipulated times.
This problem was first highlighted in The Pioneer and subsequently the systems were sanctioned by the Railways.
The authorities had also promised to install four CCTV cameras at the railway station.
Before the Railway Budget, Balangir MP Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo had also raised these demands.
