Increase safety measures: CRS

The ongoing two-day inquiry into the Titwala accident last week by the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS), Chetan Bakshi, has asked the Central Railway (CR) to increase safety measures in order to avoid similar accidents.
“We must strive to have zero accidents on the suburban as the railways cater to a massive number of people on its line,” said Mr Bakshi.
An official present during the inquiry said, “The CR has had 17 derailment, decoupling and fire-related accidents in the past three years, which the CRS has found to be alarming. Of the 17 accidents, four, including Titwala, have occurred in the year 2013-14.”
So far, the CRS’ public inquiry has recorded the statements of nearly 70 witnesses, including motor-guards and motor-men of the two trains before the Kasara-CST train derailed between Titwala and Ambivali at 2.50 pm.
The CR has been given unstipulated frame of time to reply to the CRS query, but the report will include inputs by the Railway Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO) on the failure of coupling after Titwala as well as the Diva decoupling in February.
