Hyderabad: Passengers look for modifications in timings of neighborhood trains
Hyderabad: Most country trains in the Hyderabad department are layering vacant, as the timings are not appropriate for any person. Vexed with the problem Members of the Suburban Train Travelers’ Association and also citizens have actually stood for to the South Central Railway (SCR) authorities to alter the timings, raise the regularity of neighborhood trains as well as additionally finish the track from Moulali to Sanathnagar chord line to run MMTS trains on the Ghatkesar- Sanathnagar area.
Noor Ahmed, basic assistant of the organization, for LT (lengthy train) & & MMTS, claimed, “In the Hyderabad division most MMTS trains are plying with less footfall and also the Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) and Diesel Electric Multiple Unit (DEMU) trains. The departure and arrival timings are not suitable to anyone. The first train is arriving at Secunderabad around 12.35 pm; it is not serving any purpose except consumption of electrical energy. It will be better if running of empty trains is monitored and timings changed to suit the commuters.”
Said a participant of the organization, “The SCR decision to develop the Secunderabad and Charlapally stations is good but how it will help road-users coming to stations needs to be studied. We are not opposing development works at stations. The railway should take a decision on completing the track from Moulali to Sanathnagar chord line to run MMTS trains on the Ghatkesar- Sanathnagar section and increase the frequency.”
Gopal Reddy, an everyday traveler, kept in mind that “MMTS trains are cheaper than other public transport. I prefer to travel in MMTS or DEMU trains but as there is no suitable departure and arrival time, I have been forced to travel by bus. It will be better if the railway officials increase the frequency and run a few trains more in the Hyderabad section during peak hours so that passengers can avail the services which are more safe, fast and cheap.”
