NEW DELHI: To expedite works related to the upgradation of infrastructure and improving passenger amenities, Railway Board has decided to set up a special cell in each of the 68 railway divisions tasked specifically to focus on these works so that other officers looking after safety and punctuality of trains are not burdened with this work.

According to Railway Board officials, the idea was that large number of works require close coordination within a division, especially those relating to traffic facility like yard remodeling, passenger amenity at the stations involving foot over bridge, platforms, lifts, escalators, panel and electronic interlocking for signaling and other works in yards.

“As the execution of these works is closely linked to train operation, safety and punctuality, divisions are much better equipped to execute such works with suitable augmentation/strengthening of the organisations,” said the directive issued by Railway Board last week.
