ECoR Observes International Level Crossing Awareness Day
Bhubaneswar: East Coast Railway (ECoR) has carried out intensive public awareness campaigns to educate road users during the observance of International Level Crossing Awareness Day today.
The Level Crossing Awareness Campaign has been made by ECoR through various media like distribution of posters, leaflets, various short duration films/advertisements and street play (Nukkad Natak).
Chief Safety Officer of ECoR Sudhansu Sekhar Mishra inaugurated safety awareness programme on International Level Crossing Awareness Day today at manned level crossing gate near Balikuda in Cuttack.
“Life is more precious than your time and do not risk your life while crossing the level crossings. Trains move faster than they appear to be and can reach the level crossing sooner than we can think. Be careful while passing through the level crossings,” Mishra said to the gathering.
Railway officials said that as per the directions of Railway Minister, all the unmanned level crossing gates have been eliminated from the ECoR jurisdiction.
ECoR has provided eight Road Over Bridges (ROBs), 46 Road under Bridges (RUBs) at different locations in its jurisdiction and has eliminated 117 unmanned level crossings by providing substitute path for crossing the tracks in the 2018-19 financial year.
