Security Measures Implemented by Bangalore Metro: The number of people hopping onto the metro train in Bengaluru is increasing. Two such incidents took place in the first week of January. A woman jumped on the metro track to pick up a mobile phone that had fallen at the Indiranagar metro station.
In another case, a young man tried to commit suicide by falling on the tracks at Jalahalli metro station. Alarmed by these two incidents, the Metro Corporation has decided to increase security personnel on Metro train platforms to prevent such mishaps. It has been decided to deploy 326 additional personnel.
BENGALURU: Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has decided to deploy additional security personnel to curb the increasing number of passengers on our metro tracks.
BMRCL Executive Director (Operations & Maintenance) A.S. He said that 326 additional security personnel have been deployed to monitor the movement of passengers on the platforms to ensure that no untoward incident takes place while the trains are running. Shankar said.
“Additional staff will ensure that passengers do not cross the yellow line and queue up before the train arrives. Officials say trespassing on the tracks is an offense for security reasons and for the convenience of passengers.
Metro commuters were derailed twice in the first week of January. At Indiranagar station, a woman jumped on the tracks to pick up a mobile phone lying on the tracks. A young man tried to commit suicide by jumping on the train at Jalahalli station. As a result, the young man was seriously injured and the train traffic was disrupted. BMRCL had not taken any precautionary measures even though there had been many cases in the past.
Platform Screen Door (PSD);
This is the first time that BMRCL has decided to install a Platform Screen Door (PSD) at the railway station for safety reasons. Our metro has 65 stations including eight underground stations. Also, none of them have platform screen doors or gates. At present, steps have been taken to install steel hand railings on the platforms of Majestic Interchange, an official said.
The new stations of our Metro’s pink and blue lines will have platform screen doors for which the bidding process has been completed. According to reports, Alstom Transport India has emerged as the lowest bidder for the CBTC Signaling and Platform Screen Door (PSD) contract.
857 for installation of PSD at Bangalore Metro’s 21 km Pink Line (Kalena Agrahara – Nagawara) and 56 km Blue Line (Central Silk…Board – K.R.Pura – Kempegowda International Airport) stations have been finalized. Sources said. Crore Siemens India and Nippon Signal submitted bids of Rs 912 crore and Rs 944 crore respectively for the project.
As part of the agreement, full-height platform screen doors (PSD) will be installed at 13 underground and 37 elevated stations. Infosys Foundation has requested the installation of a Platform Screen Door (CSD) at Infosys Station on Yellow Line. Sources said that they have also agreed to bear the additional cost. PSD system has been implemented in other metro cities of the country like Chennai and Delhi.
