DANAPUR: Patna Junction is perhaps the only station of East Central Railway to have coach-indication facilities on the platforms. These facilities have been provided to this model station of Indian Railways to improve further passengers’ amenities at Patna Junction, said Danapur DRM K B Mittal. According to him, passengers will not have to run here and there now to locate their particular coaches.
With the help of the coach indication board, a passenger can know in advance where will the coach in which he has reservations, be stationed on the platform. To start with, the railways have installed these boards on the platforms nos. 1 to 5 only, he said. The DRM said the coach indication boards would be provided at the Rajendra Nagar Terminus and Danapur stations soon. The railways have decided to give a new touch to the circulating area of Patna Junction to make traffic flow more easy. A separate path will be built for pedestrians outside the Patna Junction, the DRM said.
According to the DRM, the Danapur division has chalked out a comprehensive plan to provide more passenger amenities on each station located on the mainline section from Mughalsarai to Jhajha. Extension of the length of platforms to make them fit for accommodating 24 coaches, extra booking windows, construction of foot over bridges and raising the height of low platforms at each mainline station of the division are also on cards .
