Emergency stop buttons to be indicated properly at escalators: GM NCR
GM inspected the working of emergency stop buttons during his recent Gwalior Junction inspection
While NCR is striving hard to upgrade passenger amenities at its stations, efforts are also on to create public awareness about proper use of these facilities. During his recent inspection of Gwalior Railway Station on 11/10/21, GM Shri Pramod Kumar asked to check whether emergency stop buttons are provided and working properly on the escalator. He himself got it checked as he boarded the escalator and found it working properly. However, GM expressed his concern over low level of awareness among officials that such an emergency button exists and thus directed that escalators installed at all the stations of NCR should properly display the location of emergency stop button so that they could be used at the time of need.
NCR had installed 33 escalators at its various stations uptoMarch 2021. In current financial year, around 30 more escalators are targeted to be commissioned. While work for installation of two escalators at Aligarh Jn has been completed, other escalators are planned to come up at Tundla, Kanpur, Prayagraj, PrayagrajChheoki, Jhansi, Gwalior, Lalitpur, Mathura and Agra Fort in this financial year.
